Google’s Nexus event is currently on its way, and just as we’ve spent the last few weeks covering an insane amount of leaks about them, today Google has announced the Nexus 5X. As opposed to the Nexus 6P that was also announced at the same time, the Nexus 5X is a tad less powerful than the Nexus 6P. This is not to say that the Nexus 5X is a mid-ranger when compared to its phablet sibling, but there are some differences.
The reason why we say that this is not a mid-ranger starts with its processor, which is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 CPU, which you already know from flagships like the Moto X and LG G4. In addition to that we have 2GB of RAM and a 12.3MP rear camera with laser-assisted autofocus, dual flash, and this camera is even capable of shooting 4K video. The Nexus 5X will also ship with Google’s new Sensor Hub chip inside that keeps notifications and fitness statistics without giving an extra burden to the processor. The device includes support for USB Type-C port for fast charging and syncing, and it does include a fingerprint at the back, and allowing the Nexus 5X to support Google’s new Nexus Imprint. Powering this Google Nexus 5X is a 2,700mAh battery, and you’ll have options for 16GB and 32GB of non-expandable storage, and color options include black, white and ice blue.
If you’re interested in the Nexus 5X, pricing starts at $379, it will begin shipping in late October and you have the option to consider two years of Nexus Protect coverage for an extra $69.
