Two new Nexus phones available for pre-order in Australia today

We introduced Android as an open platform that anyone can build on, and today there are 4,000+ Android devices in all shapes and sizes. Android’s diversity is why it’s become the most popular mobile platform in the world, and the latest version, Marshmallow, takes Android to a new level of performance.

Every year, the people who build Android also build Nexus devices to show off the latest and greatest of Android. And this year, they built not one, but two Nexus phones. Today we’re introducing two new Nexus treats and opening pre-orders for both phones in Australia. They both run Android Marshmallow 6.0 and are sweetened by amazing apps — sandwiched by some cutting-edge hardware (see what we did there?).

The Nexus 6P is the first full metal-body Nexus phone. Built by Huawei, this 5.7” phone is crafted from aeronautical-grade aluminum, with a powerful processor, a 12 megapixel camera and a new type of USB port —called USB Type-C — for fast charging.


Many of you told us how much you loved the Nexus 5. So, we’ve brought it back with the new Nexus 5X, giving you great performance and a beautiful 5.2” screen, in a compact and light package.

With Android Marshmallow, the new Nexus phones offer Now on Tap to help you get fast answers when you need them, fingerprint support for quick and secure access, more control over app permissions, and Doze to help your battery work smarter. 

Starting today in Australia, you can pre-order the new Nexus phones from the Google Store. The Nexus 5X starts at $659 and the Nexus 6P starts at $899. You can also get the Nexus 5X on a plan or outright through Telstra, while the Nexus 6P is available through Optus and Vodafone. In early November, you can pop into a JB HiFi or Harvey Norman to pick up a new Nexus device.
