The Nexus 6P and 5X will continue to get updated until September 2017, which is when we should we be starting to see Android O. Google has also talked about software updates for Android One phones, stating:

All partners have committed to giving software updates for at least 18 months after the phone’s launch. All Android One phones will get at least one major software update and several smaller security updates.
