Yesterday I posted a long list of leaks for the Nexus 5X and 6P, including the packaging and color options, along with the few leaked specs of the Nexus 5X from Amazon. Today we’re getting even more information on both phones as Geekbench numbers have leaked for “Bullhead” and “Angler”, the original codenames for the 5X and 6P respectively. The benchmarks show that the LG Nexus 5X, aka “bullhead” features 6-core Qualcomm processor and 2GB RAM, which is exactly the information Amazon posted. That 6-core chipset is the Snapdragon 808, the same one found in the celebrated Moto X Pure Edition. The Huawei 6P aka “angler” has an 8-core Qualcomm chipset which we expect to be the Snapdragon 810. The Geekbench numbers also show 3GB of RAM for the 6P.
The best news about the 5X and 6P is that they will both run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It looks like the specs for both devices are starting to line up with the rumors we’ve seen, which probably means a relatively higher price for the 6P compared to the 5X. We still need to wait for Google’s September 29 event to get full pricing and availability information. Keep it locked here to HOA for the latest details through the event next week!
