If Apple's iPhone isn't your cup of tea, we've got some good news for you. Google just announced a pair of new Nexus phones that are loaded up with the latest version of Android and a bunch of killer camera updates.

Dubbed the Nexus 5x and the Nexus 6P, Google's two new smartphones share a lot of the same features but differ in terms of size, hardware, and price. Here's what you need to know about the latest in Android.

Nexus 6P
Improving on the Nexus 6, the Huawei-built Nexus 6P has a large, 5.7-inch screen surrounded by an aeronautical-grade aluminum chassis — it's Google's first all-aluminum phone. The build quality feels really nice, and diamond-cut edges add a little sheen. On the bottom, it has a USB Type C port for speedy charging. How speedy? It can reportedly fully juice up in about half the time it takes an iPhone 6 Plus.
