The Nexus 5X Does Have A True RGB Notification LED Just Like The 6P, But It's Missing From The Spec List

Nexus launch day is a cutthroat time when mere moments can make the difference between a speedy shipment and weeks of waiting. While quickly comparing the Nexus 5X and 6P to decide which one to order, many have noticed that the 6P lists an RGB notification LED, but the 5X doesn't. Well, we've confirmed there's an LED on the 5X too. How? We bothered Google VP of Engineering Dave Burke via email. He was kind enough to explain what's going on.

The Special Edition Gold Nexus 6P Is Confirmed To Be A Japan Exclusive

Gold phones are a thing these days, but you won't be able to get Google's latest flagship in gold unless you happen to be in Japan. Odds are that you aren't, so that's a bummer. The gold version of the Nexus 6P is a special edition, and it will only be sold via the Japanese Google Store.

Huawei Is Selling The Nexus 6P Through Its US Website, Too - Here's Why You Might Want To Consider It

The Google Store is already taking pre-orders for the Nexus 6P, and I'm sure a ton of you have already placed one. But there's an alternative you might want to check out, at least if you live in the US: Huawei's own online storefront. The manufacturer is also selling the phone directly to consumers, with a shipping date of late October.

DxOMark Says The Nexus 6P's Camera Is One Of The Best Available, Second Only To The Galaxy S6 Edge

I think quite a few users were a bit nervous when they heard that the new Nexus phone cameras were eschewing an optical image stabilization system, instead relying on a new sensor design that includes bigger and more sensitive 1.55 micrometer pixels that gather more light. According to the experts over at DxOMark, there's no reason to worry: the Nexus 6P's camera is pretty freakin' great. After the team's battery of intensive photo tests, they've given it a score of 84 out of 100, the second-highest rating on the site. The 6P beats out the Galaxy Note 4, Moto X Style, and the latest crop of iPhones - the only phone to score higher is the Galaxy S6 Edge, and the 6P takes over the LG G4's second-place spot.

Nexus Camera Gets Huge Improvements, Slow-Motion Video, Smart Burst (6P Only), Launch Shortcut, And More

Remember when the camera on Nexus phones was sort of terrible? Yeah, it looks like that's about to change.

Google is betting big on photography this year. The Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P include significant enhancements to both the front and rear camera modules. On the back of both phones is a 12.3 megapixel Sony sensor with impressively large 1.55 micron pixels, an f/2.0 lens, laser autofocus, and dual LED flash. The front-facing camera module now sports an 8 megapixel sensor with HDR+, "so you can get the world's best selfies" on your Nexus phone.

To match the new hardware, Google has also announced updates to the camera app as well.

[Updated] Nexus 6P Hands-On: A Pretty Compelling $500 Phone If There Ever Was One

The Nexus 6P is a big, good phone with a slightly better than average price. That's what makes it interesting. The display is good. The build quality seems nice. It supposedly has a pretty good camera. It even has true dual front-facing speakers which the Nexus 5X apparently does not. You can choose between 32, 64 and 128GB of internal strorage ($499, $549, and $649, respectively), too, the most available storage ever on a Nexus phone.

It has an aluminum chassis, a 2K super AMOLED screen that looks quite solid, and a Snapdragon 810 chip that appears to fly through most tasks pretty easily.

[Updated] T-Mobile Says The Nexus 5X And 6P Won't Have Band 12 LTE Support (For Now)

Taking a look at the spec sheet for the new Nexus phones, you might notice that the LTE section lists band 12. However, this is by no means a guarantee of actual support anymore. T-Mobile has been leaning on unlocked device makers to block access to band 12 unless they get certified for VoLTE, and it looks like the new Nexus phones lack that. According to T-Mobile's Twitter account, neither phone will have band 12 enabled at launch.
