Rumored Nexus 5X and 6P names gain weight with latest leaked images

We previously reported that Google's next Nexus phones may carry the 5X and 6P names, and now some alleged pictures of the product packaging for the two smartphones has surfaced, seemingly adding some weight to the naming scheme.

As previously reported, Google is expected to release two Nexus phones this year, one made by LG and the other by Huawei. As far as which is which, the LG-made Nexus is reported to carry the 5X moniker, while the Huawei-made Nexus will come in a bit bigger and carry the 6P name. It's a bit of a mystery as to why Google may go with the X and P in the device names, but we're sure to find out more next week at the company's September 29 event.

Update: Android Police has now followed up with a separate leak of an alleged Nexus 6P render (pictured below), which seemingly lines up with some previous glimpses at the smartphone. They have also shown off the various colors that the Nexus 6P may appear in.
