Rumor Mill: Google's new Nexus phones from LG and Huawei to be called Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P

Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is holding an event on Sept. 29 at which it is expected to unveil the latest devices in its Nexus program, which run the pure version of its Android operating system. The two new Nexus phones are expected to come from LG Electronics and Huawei, and many of the phones' specifications have leaked, but their names have not. According to Android Police, which received images of the devices' packaging, the LG-made 5.2-inch phone will be called the Nexus 5X while the Huawei-made gadget with a 5.7-inch screen will be dubbed the Nexus 6P. The phones will be running Android 6.0 "Marshmallow," which includes a new feature called "Now on Tap," which gives users information about people and places and lets them take actions based on the context of what they are viewing in mobile apps. Article
