Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P – Google wants to Revitalise them
Seeing the Google started losing interest for its older Nexus handheld devices ever since the Pixel lineup was launched, everyone started believing that Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are going to be forgotten. The Android parent decided to prove everyone wrong this month when it rolled out March’s security bulletin to both Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
Google has yet to Forget about Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P
Even though rumors were pointing towards a Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P discontinuation, it looks like both Google smartphones are not going anywhere. Some actually believe that Google wants to revive these two smartphones in order to boost its sales percentages. The way Google is doing this is by keeping both Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P up to date with all of its latest operating system updates.
Pixel doesn’t have the Same Brand Recognition as Nexus
As previously mentioned, Google wants to increase its profit revenue by revitalizing Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The reason why Google is feeling compelled to do that is because neither Pixel nor Pixel XL is selling that well in foreign countries. Both Pixel smartphones are considered as high-quality products but the Pixel brand isn’t globally recognized. This is where Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P come in.
Google wants to bring Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P Back
The Nexus brand has been alive for a bunch of years now and it has managed to gather quite a large fan-base, especially since it represents the “Pure” Android experience. Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are selling in large amounts of units in foreign markets such as Europe and Asia and that’s why Google wants to bring them back.
What’s interesting is that according to rumors, Pixel’s success is actually hindered by the fact that Nexus 6P is still one of the most desirable Android smartphones. While this might sound like competition, it’s actually not. This is a win-win situation for the Android parent. It can keep Pixel and Pixel XL as premium smartphones while Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P cater to mid-ranged budgets.
