EU Google Stores start taking Nexus 5X orders, deliveries begin November 9
Available for pre-orders since way back September in the US, UK, Korea, Japan, and Ireland, the LG-made Google Nexus 5X is clearly not as in-demand as the Huawei Nexus 6P. Either that, or the former device manufacturer outpaces the latter as far as mass production is concerned, which is obviously a strong possibility as well.
Huawei might be able to ship a lot more phones worldwide than LG at the moment, but this is the first time the third largest OEM is involved in a Nexus launch, and customer interest could overwhelm anyone.
All in all therefore, Android purists living in EU countries may need to wait a while longer to get a stab at the biggest vanilla software-running handheld to date, with the petite and affordable N5X up for grabs from Google across the old continent.
We’re afraid affordable is a bit of a stretch outside America however, as European Google Stores charge €479 and €529 for 16 and 32GB configurations respectively, no microSD support in tow. None of the US promotions are good there either, but in lieu of free $50 Play Store credit or 90-day Play Music access, buyers in select markets can score a complimentary Chromecast through December 8.
The gift’s retail value is just $35 stateside, and for some reason, the bundle offer is valid in Spain, Italy, Germany, and France, but not in Portugal, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Sweden.
On the bright side, deliveries are free of charge, and should begin “by November 9”, so in around a week, you could rock a spanking new Marshmallow-powered 5.2-incher with Full HD screen resolution, hexa-core SD808 power, 2GB RAM, 12.3 and 5MP cameras, fingerprint recognition, USB Type-C connectivity, and relatively easy to replace components. Can we hear a huzzah?
