The Nexus 5X and 6P will both be available in the coming weeks according to Google, though exact dates and official pricing has yet to be announced for the local market. The phone specs have been laid out and we’re waiting on official pricing – though US pricing has been announced for both models, with the Nexus 5X starting at US$379 for the 16GB model and US$429 for the 32GB model. The Nexus 6P is priced at US$499 for the 32GB model, US$549 for the 64GB model and $649 for the 128GB model.
There is some pricing available on the Google Store with pricing for the 5X listed as ‘starting at $659’ and the 6P listed as ‘starting from $899’ – putting the earlier leak of Nexus 6P pricing right on the money, so expect to pay $999 for the 64GB model and $1099 for the 128GB model.

In the box, you’ll find various accessories, including a USB Type-C 15W (5V/3A) charger, USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable, USB Type-C to USB Standard-A plug cable, SIM tool, Safety and Warranty information, Quick start guide and a Google Play Music promo card.
Since this article was published, Google has amended the Nexus 5X entry to remove the USB-C to USB-A cable. That cable comes with the Nexus 6P but not the Nexus 5X.
With USB-C now the standard for the Nexus 5X and 6P, Google has added a bunch of USB-C adapters to the Google Store, allowing users to order USB-C Chargers, from $39.99, USB-C to USB-C cables from $29.99, USB-C to USB-A (male) cables from $19.99 and a USB-C to USB-A (Female) adapter from $19.99.
Both the Nexus 5X and 6P have accessories listed with cases starting from just $34 for a basic case and ranging up to $59/$69 for a Folio Case on the 5X/6P. The cases are designed and supplied from Speck, and Adopted and appear to be available to purchase right now.
The phones are listed as coming soon and we’ll be definitely updating with more information from Google on pricing and availability when available.
