Today Google introduced two new Nexus smartphones, the Nexus 6P at $700 and Nexus 5X at $559 along with the new Google Pixel C Tablet that's a unique 2-in-1 device that's a combined tablet and magnetized keyboard. As you can see in our cover graphic, Google has added a Home-Button like circle directly under the backside camera which is to act like Apple's Touch ID.  


The Nexus phones also feature better cameras than previous models trying to match similar upgrades that Apple just made to its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Google is also promising the Nexus 6P will be able to be fully charged in half the time that it takes the iPhone 6s Plus. The Nexus 6P has a 5.7-inch screen, slightly larger than the iPhone 6s Plus. The Nexus 5X has a 5.2-inch screen.


Interestingly Google is now making its own Android tablet called the Pixel C instead of having a partner manufacture it. It's the second wholly Google-made machine after the Chromebook Pixel. Pixel C is the new flagship Android Marshmallow tablet experience, which Google obviously thinks should be based at least partially around productivity in the new hybrid laptop-tablet category, started by Microsoft’s original Surface tablet in 2012.

The Pixel C will be available with either 32GB of storage for $499 or 64GB for $599  and is expected to be available before Christmas. The keyboard is extra and will cost $149.
