Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X to go up for pre-order from September 29; Prices start from $379 and $499

The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P have leaked plenty of times over the last couple of weeks, and earlier today, details about their retail availability also made its way to the Internet. To make the day even better for Nexus fanboys, Android Police has now revealed the prices of these handsets and their pre-order dates.

According to the site’s sources, the 16GB Nexus 5X has been priced at $379.99. While the pricing of the 32GB option remains unclear, it is likely that Google will charge a premium of around $50 for it. Google will be offering the Nexus 5X in three colors: Carbon, Quartz, and Ice Blue.

As for the Nexus 6P, it will be available from $499.99. Considering that the device comes with a faster Snapdragon 810 chipset, a bigger 5.7-inch Quad HD display, more base storage space, and a 3450mAh battery, the premium of $120 that Google is charging is pretty reasonable. Again, the pricing of the 64GB and 128GB storage variants of the Nexus 6P are not known, but Google is likely to charge a premium of $50 to $100 for them.

Both handsets will go up for pre-order on September 29 in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, and Japan. The Nexus 6P will also go up for pre-order in Canada, while the Nexus 5X will not. Instead, the handset will available for pre-order in Korea, where the Nexus 6P will not be available.
