nexus 5x 4

Today Google took the wraps off its latest Nexus handsets, with pre-orders opening up now and with orders scheduled to ship within 4 to 6 weeks. Once your new phone arrives, you’ll want to keep it protected. While simply having a Nexus Protect plan is one way to help in the event of an accident, having a good case doesn’t hurt either. With that in mind, Google is offering up four different cases on the Google Store for both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

The name of the case lines are as follows:


Nexus case ($35) – Available in carbon or quartz | Nexus 5X | Nexus 6P

Adopted Protective case ($20) – Carbon, Clear Frost, or Blue (Blue only for Nexus 5X) | Nexus 5X | Nexus 6P


Speck CandyShell Grip case (Nexus 5X: $35 / Nexus 6P: $40) – Black/Slate or White/Black | Nexus 5X | Nexus 6P

Adopted Folio case (Nexus 5X: $40 / Nexus 6P: TBA) – Carbon or Quartz for Nexus 5X, Black or brown for 6P Black | Nexus 5X | Nexus 6P

With the exception of the Adopted Folio case for the Nexus 6P, all cases are available for order from today. As for other Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P accessories? There’s not a lot, but there are a number of Type C cables and chargers, which can be found here.
