The Nexus line-up has always been criticized for its average camera quality. And again in yesterday’s announcement from Google, no one was expecting something exciting in this front. Furthermore, users started getting worrisome once Google started talking about the lack of OIS (optical image stabilization) in new flagship.

But Google spent a good deal of time talking about the new camera sensor in the Nexus 6P. Google claims its new phones have such a big camera sensor, that it doesn’t need image stabilization. The large 1.55 (1/2.3”-type sensor) is bigger than the original Nexus 6, and even bigger than the new iPhone 6s Plus, which Apple made a big splash about. Large sensor enables to capture more light even in dark environments, something similar to what we have seen with HTC’s UltraPixel  method and result in an overall excellent image, and top quality video recording.

These reports have now been confirmed by at least one reliable source – camera experts DxOMark. It is a popular website that tests cameras, and breaks everything down into two categories, which are photo and video. Each part of how the camera performs gets a score, and is rounded out for one overall result. You will be surprised to learn that Google’s Nexus 6P scored an 84 on the benchmark, just behind the Galaxy S6, placing it on second position in best camera smartphones ahead of even the iPhone 6 and even the LG G4 and its 16 megapixel camera with OIS.

The all new Nexus 6P is available starting today at the Google Store, starting at $499. Right now Google is accepting pre-orders, and should start shipping before the end of October.

The complete LG Nexus 5X specs have been leaked out along with feature highlights. Seems like leaked features and specs are intended for use on the 5X’s product page. According to leaked images Nexus 5X will offer a 5.2-inch full HD 1920×1080 display, A 12.3 MP rear camera with dual flash and optical image stabilization, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. There’s also a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. Seems like fingerprint sensor will become a new norm in future android flagships.

The handset will be powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor. It will support 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM which does seem a bit small for a new phone coming out in late 2015, but as Nexus 5X will be a mid range device, it will not disappoint with the performance in its class. It will support 16 & 32 GB memory options and a USB Type-C connector. The Nexus 5X will support a slim profile with only 7.9 mm thickness. Meanwhile, the lack of wireless charging is puzzling since that feature was in the Nexus 4, 5, and 6.

According to multiple news outlets, the Nexus 5X is also said to be priced starting at $380 for the 16GB model, or $100 more for 32GB.

All will fully be revealed tomorrow at 9:00 AM PT/12:00 PM ET.

Update : We have got a hands on video on Nexus 5X Prototype
