Two weeks after it was globally unveiled, the Nexus 5X is all set to be rolled out in India. The device was one of the most anticipated devices in the recent times after the success that the Nexus 5 assembled. Google announced the Nexus 5X in an event in the US on September 29th and promised a quick global rollout for the phone. It was however, not anticipated that the rollout would be so quick that within the first two weeks the phone will be officially announced. The information about the launch comes from a press invite that several of our friends in the industry have received.
The invite does not specifically mention that the event is about the device launch, but if you have been following the industry stories, it is easy enough to guess it. It is expected that Google will lineup, both the Nexus 5X and 6P at the event and while the Nexus 5X will go on sale immediately, those looking to pick the 6P will have to wait a little longer. The Nexus 5X is expected to be an exclusive device to Amazon and could bundle with some interesting offers especially as it would be made available during the festive season here in India. The 6P on the other hand, is expected to be a Flipkart exclusive and could come with similar offers.
The Nexus 6P is the larger of the two Nexus phones and is manufactured by Huawei while the Nexus 5X is still an LG product. The two Nexus phones would be the first Android devices to be running Android 6.0 out of the box.
