The Google Nexus 5X
Google and LG have released the official specs of their Google Nexus 5X. The Google Nexus 5X builds on the Google Nexus 5, the 2014 flagship of Google and LG. The Google Nexus 5X has a completely new look and upgraded hardware. It will run Google’s newest Android version, Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Nexus 5X has a 5.2 inch 1080p display. Google powers the device with a Hexa-core Snapdragon 808 CPU that has been clocked at up to 2.0 GHz. The device has 2 GB of RAM and will have different versions with storage options of 16 or 32 GB. There will be no microSD card.
The Nexus 5X will have a 5MP camera in front and a 12.3 MP camera having 1.55 micron pixels and a f/2.0 aperture on the back. There is a burst shot mode by which you can easily create GIFs. There is also slow mostion video recording with 120 FPS. The new camera app is based on latest Camera 3.0 API.
The battery of this device is 2700 mAh, enough supposedly to last at least a day. The Nexus 5X will have USB Type C Support.
Google and LG are introducing in this device a fingerprint scanner they are calling Nexus Imprint. This is a one-tap fingerprint scanner that is placed below the camera at the back. All you need to do is tap this fingerprint scanner and it will directly unlock you phone. Nexus Imprint works faster than other fingerprint scanners currently available from other manufacturers such as Samsung and Apple and it is completely compatible with Android play.
The Nexus 5X is available for sale on the Google Play Store. Users who are interested in getting their own Nexus 5X will be able to place their orders now on the Google Play Store.
A base variant of the Nexus 5X – one that comes with 16 GB or storage – will be priced at around $379, while the 32 GB variant will go for around $429. This is a 4G LTE supported smartphone that will be sold in unlocked form but will work on major US carriers.
