Tomorrow is the big expected Nexus day, but that doesn't mean you have to wait to find out what's going on with this year's devices. Obviously. I mean, what more is there to know about the Nexus 5X and the larger, oddly-shaped Nexus 6P at this point?

We've modified the page a bit to enable the pop-up for the illustration above. Read More
