Nexus 6P
The Nexus 6P is made by Huawei and looks like the successor to the Nexus 6. It comes with a slightly smaller display size and a ton of improvements over the last phone. While initially, it was rumored that the phone will run on the Snapdragon 820 SoC from Qualcomm, turns out, the Snapdragon 810 is what it runs on.

In addition, the device has a full metal build, which is a first for the Nexus series. There is a fingerprint sensor at the back and 2K display on the front. However, the feature that Google is boasting is the new camera that comes with an all new Sony sensor.

The smaller Nexus phone. The Nexus 5X is a sequel to the Nexus 5, which was arguably the company's last succesful Nexus phone. Unlike its predecessor though,  the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC and looks a lot like the Moto X (2nd Gen) from the front.
