Everything we know about the Nexus 5X and 6P so far

Its the time of the year when all the Android enthusiasts buckle up and brace for the new Nexus device to impact. Traditionally, until the Nexus 5, a Nexus device has not been a commercial end-consumer device. The intent of the Nexus initiative is to give the developers and power users a reference device with a high end hardware and pure Android loaded, so that they can test their apps or any other experiments on it. But that intent is dissolved and the Nexus is becoming a device that would interest any mobile buyer. So the next big thing (actually two) is about to be announced and there has been lots of leaks and rumors doing the rounds on the internet. Here is what we know so far about these devices purely based on all the unofficial sources.

For the first time, the Nexus devices will be available in two variants. The Nexus 5X and the 6P. Inspired by Apple?
