TECH-giant Google will unveil two new flagship smartphones called the 6P and 5X at its event in San Francisco today.

The larger of the two, the 6P, is designed to compete with fellow-phablets the iPhone 6S Plus and the Galaxy Note 5.

However, it’s widely expected that the 6P will cost a lot less than the other two. The 6P is set to retail for $499 (€444).

It’s understood that the 6P, from Chinese giant Huawei, will boast a 5.7” wide-quad high definition (WQHD) display and 3,450mAh battery that would be bigger than its Cupertino and South Korean competitors.

The 6P will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variants - the latter two being more expensive than its $499 entry price-tag.

As well as the 6P, Google is expected to release the 5X.

The 5X will have a more modest 5.2” 1080p display but will also come with a much more reasonable price tag.

The 5X is rumoured to cost around $379.99 (€338).

If rumours around the devices are to be believed, we won’t be seeing them in shops for pre-order at least.

Instead, Google will be sticking exclusively to online sales.

Pre-orders for the phones are expected to go live later today soon after the announcement.
