The long-awaited Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X are unleashed
Google officially announced the two latest additions to the Nexus family by revisiting a former favourite and welcoming a new manufacturing partner to the party.
The Nexus 5 by LG was one of the most popular Nexus devices ever, so Google returned to the South Korean company to make the 5X, a mid-range, 5.2-inch handset. It contains a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 1.8GHz processor, the same as in the LG G4, and a reasonable 2,700mAh battery that supports Type-C and Fast Charging.
The 6P, meanwhile, represents a new direction for Google, trusting an up and coming Chinese manufacturer to make its flagship handset. This 5.7-inch monster sports a display running 518ppi and an enormous 3,450 mAh battery to keep it running.

Can Gigaset’s trio of phones beat the Honor 7?
German communications company Gigaset has taken its first step in the smartphone market, releasing three mid-range devices called the Pure, ME and Pro.
The specs on the three devices are very good, with the ME and Pro running a Snapdragon 810 processor, 32GB internal storage, SD card storage up to 128GB, dual SIM and sporting 20MP and 8MP back and front cameras.
The key difference between the two higher end phones is that the Pro has a 5.5-in screen, an incredible 5GB RAM and a 4,000mAh battery, as opposed to a 5-in screen, 3GB RAM and a 3,000mAh battery. The Pro also has Gorilla Glass front and back, with a stainless steel frame.
Fans of the Samsung Galaxy Note range in Europe have started a petition to launch the handset in Europe
Probably the biggest bit of news to come out of the Samsung Unpacked event that launched the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 was that the latter won’t be coming to Europe this year.
This has incensed users of the popular phablet in Europe so they have initiated a petition to convince Samsung to reverse their decision to only release the Note 5 in North America.
The campaign has been launched by Clove Technology, an online phone shop. In its blog post, Clove has said ‘Whilst here at Clove we respect Samsung’s decision we are smartphone users too and understand how for so many, this is very disappointing news. We would therefore like to show Samsung what the Note series and particularly the Note 5 meant to you.’
