We’ve already known that Google will call its new LG-manufactured Nexus model the Nexus 5X. But what about the bigger Nexus device that will be manufactured by Huawei? One of Droid Life’s sources has spilled the beans and it seems this year’s bigger Nexus device is going to be called… the Nexus 6P.

Why the Nexus 6P? The Nexus 5X has kind of a cool ring to it since we’ve for some reason decided adding “X” to something makes it edgy. But “P?” At any rate, both devices sound extremely promising and we can’t wait to see them when Google unveils them later this month.

From a specs perspective, we expect the Nexus 5X will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, a 12.3-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, a 2700 mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The larger Huawei phone has been tipped to feature a 5.7-inch 2K display, a 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 24GB of storage, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with 4K video support and 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Google will reportedly reveal both devices at a press event on September 29th.
