Google’s new Nexus phones have gone on pre-order at Carphone Warehouse, ahead of their official street date of October 19th.

The Nexus 6P is up for grabs from £34.99 on EE. That bags you 1,000 minutes and 2GB of data per month, as well as unlimited text messages.

If you want the Nexus 5X, you’re looking at minimum outlay of £26.99, also on EE. Allowances here are 2GB of data per month and unlimited texts and minutes.

As a sweetener, both handsets are bundled with a free Chromecast Audio gadget, usually priced £30.

In case you missed Google’s launch event this week, this is an add-on that was unveiled alongside the revamped Chromecast TV streaming gadget.

Its big ‘sell’ is that you can plug it into speakers of an old stereo around the home and beam songs and podcasts to it from your smartphone over WiFi.

Both phones feature the latest Marshmallow version of Google’s Android operating system in the stripped down so-called vanilla form, which means they’re not encumbered with bloatware (little-used apps that manufacturers include to put their stamp on Android).

They’re also home to rear-mounted fingerprint scanners and 12.3-megapixel cameras.
