Google’s upcoming Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are hardly well-kept secrets. We’ll probably know all there is to know about this year’s Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 phones when it comes to designs, new features and specs, though we don’t have pricing details or release dates just yet.

Google will officially announce the two handsets next week, but until then we have a few more Nexus leaks to check out, which show retail packaging for both devices, press renders for the Nexus 6P and an Amazon India listing for the Nexus 5X.

Android blog Android Police scored images of the retail boxes for both devices, which seem to further confirm the names Google has chosen for the LG and Huawei smartphones.

The new LG Nexus 5 will be sold as the Nexus 5X while the Huawei Nexus phablet will be known as the Nexus 6P, just as previous leaks stated – see them below.

The same tech site also published the press image of the Nexus 6P, which seems to be in line with previous image leaks. The handset has clear Nexus and Huawei branding on the back, two speakers on the front, a fingerprint sensor and a bulky camera on the back.

Finally, Amazon India is already listing the Nexus 5X, though the handset can’t be ordered at this time. Pricing details aren’t mentioned, but Amazon reveals much of the hardware inside the phone. According to the listing, the Nexus 5X has a 5.2-inch display with Full HD resolution, 1.8GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB of RAM 16GB of storage, a 12.3-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, and a 2,700 mAh battery.

The listing also says the Nexus 5X is made by LG, with model number LG-H791, and that it’ll be available in three colors including Ice Blue, Charcoal Black and Quartz White.
