It's Android day today, with Google announcing a whole host of new products including the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel C and two new Chromecasts. Whether you're interested in some, or all of the company's latest devices, we've got all available UK pricing right here.

Nexus 5X

Nexus 5X

That's right, LG is back with another Nexus device: the 5X. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB of RAM, 12.3-megapixel rear-facing camera with laser-assisted autofocus, dual flash and can capture 4K video. Of course, it'll ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and includes Google's new Sensor Hub chip inside that's designed to deliver notifications and keep background processes updated without drawing too much power. There's a USB Type-C port for faster charging data syncing and a fingerprint sensor in the back to authenticate payments and other app processes. LG's stuffed a 2,700mAh battery inside and it comes in 16GB and 32GB versions. As for colours, you're looking at black, white and ice blue.

Nexus 6P

Nexus 6P

While LG is back with a Nexus device, we've also got a new entrant: Huawei. It's launched the Nexus 6P, featuring a 5.7-inch screen running at 1440p resolution (or 518 PPI). It's powered by a Snapdragon 810 chip with 3GB of RAM and like the Nexus 5X, the 6P includes a 12.3-megapixel rear-facing camera with the same autofocus and f/2.0 aperture, 8-megapixel front facer with a f/2.4 aperture and can shoot slow-motion video at 240fps as well as capturing footage in 4K. It'll be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB configurations in frost white, aluminum and graphite.

Pixel C

Google's Pixel C

In previous years, Google has unveiled a Nexus tablet to complement its new smartphones. The same happened this year, but it's not a Nexus device, it's called the Pixel C. It's the first tablet that Google has built completely on its own and comes with a full-size keyboard that attaches magnetically and USB-C charging. Think of it as Google's answer to Microsoft's Surface. The 10.2-inch device is powered by NVIDIA's Tegra X1 with 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM, features an extra-bright 308 PPI display and comes in both 32GB and 64GB variants. Unfortunately we don't have a UK price for the Pixel C yet, but if take the $499 price for the 32GB model and $599 for double the storage and apply it to the Nexus pricing, they should work out around £449 and £549 respectively when they launch in November. As for the attachable keyboard, that'll set you back $149, so we'd expect it to come in around £100.

Chromecast and Chromecast Audio


Smartphones and tablets aren't the only devices Google announced today. There's the new circular Chromecast and Chromecast Audio, giving you improved video and audio streaming over the original stick. According to Google, the improved antenna in the Chromecast allows it to stream higher-resolution videos faster with less buffering and "Fast Play" allows you to get streaming even quicker. The Chromecast Audio, however, is a bit different. It sits between your old audio system and your speakers -- via RCA jacks, standard 3.5mm auxiliary and optical input -- allowing you to output music via supported music streaming services. The good news is that both devices are available to buy via the Google Store for £30 today.
