Google posts Android 6.0 Marshmallow factory images for the Nexus 5X


Google has today, on the press review embargo lift day and available-to-buy-outright day, posted factory images for the Nexus 5X, otherwise known as “bullhead.” They’re all for version 6.0.0, but there’s currently three different builds available. It’s not clear what the differences are between them, but it’s likely that they’re minuscule at most.

You can find the three 6.0.0 images over at Google’s Developers website, or you can find quick links below (clicking them will pull straight from Google’s servers):

If you’re on the fence about buying the Nexus 5X (or you’re considering going with the Nexus 6P instead), be sure to head over and read our review roundups for both devices from earlier today: Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P.  The general consensus, for those that are out of the loop, is that the Nexus 6P is pretty much the Android handset to beat.

If you need help flashing one of these images (it’s pretty sad if you need this already, considering the device has only started showing up on doorsteps today), you can head over to our Android Marshmallow factory image install guide.
