Google today rolled out a new program called Nexus Protect. Nexus Protect offers two years of coverage against breakage (accidental or otherwise) for new Nexus handsets. Users can submit claims any time of day. The program costs $69 for the Nexus 5X and $89 for the Nexus 6P. Nexus Protect is being launched in the U.S. first. Google did not say if it will be available to other Nexus handsets or in other regions. It is similar to Appe's AppleCare and HTC's Uh-Oh Protection.
The 5X is just half of Google's new lineup of Nexus phones for 2015. This LG-made handset includes a fingerprint sensor, full HD screen, and 12-megapixel camera.
Google's flagship Android smartphone for the year is the Nexus 6P, made by Huawei. This slim and attractive handset features a metal design, quad HD display, fingerprint sensor, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
