Here's everything Nexus-related that Google just announced

Google had a jam-packed press event today to roll out tons of new products, updates to old products and a view of what's to come in the future. Perhaps the biggest announcements of the day were the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X — the two Nexus phones to launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and carry on as Google references devices for the coming year. But we also got information on Marshmallow updates for previous Nexuses, as well as a new Nexus Protect phone insurance plan.

Here's everything Nexus-related that Google announced today.

Huawei Nexus 6P

The Nexus 6P is the first collaboration between Huawei and Google for a hardware project, and it's the higher-end of the two Nexus phones. It's smaller than last year's Nexus 6, now with a 5.7-inch screen, and it's also made out of a solid metal shell. There's a promising 12.3MP camera on back, a QHD AMOLED screen up front, and a fingerprint sensor for added security. It'll set you back $499 to $649 unlocked.

LG Nexus 5X

The Nexus 5X is a perfect successor to the original Nexus 5. It's built by LG once again, keeps the same basic shape and size, but picks up new features and internal specs. It now has a Snapdragon 808 powering it, as well as a new 12.3MP camera with a large sensor and pixels, and a one-touch fingerprint sensor on the back. It starts at just $379 unlocked and comes in three colors.

Marshmallow updates for Nexuses

Of course these aren't the only Nexuses out there — there are still millions of previous Nexus phones and tablets out in the wild that are ready to receive the latest update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Google announced that the Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013), 9 and Player will all get the marshmallow update starting next week, which is great news for everyone who wants to extend the life of their current device rather than buying one of the new phones.

Nexus Protect insurance

Nexus Protect

Though Nexus phones have always had a standard one-year manufacturer warranty, Google is now offering additional paid insurance for your Nexus phone when you buy it from the Google Store. Nexus Protect can be purchased with your phone, and costs $69 up-front for the Nexus 5X and $89 for the Nexus 6P. It protects you from liability for accidental damage for two years, and you can make up to two claims for replacement phones for a deductible for $79. You can make a claim 24/7 and often get a replacement phone within 24 hours of your claim.
