September 29th is now less than a week away, and we’re sure Google’s getting things ready in San Francisco to make the new Nexus announcement a blast. While we can’t foresee everything Google is up to, we can take advantage of the information that comes to us from credible sources with documents that really do give away many of the surprises.
So far, the LG Nexus 5X specs have leaked, so it’s not as though we didn’t know them. But now, another credible source, this time online retailer Amazon India, has provided the specs via its own website. The specs of the Nexus 5X Amazon supplies matches many of those we’d reported on earlier. We did report at some point, however, that the Nexus 5X rumors pointed to a Full HD, 1080p screen instead of a 2K, Quad HD screen that had been hinted at earlier. The hexa-core, Snapdragon 808 processor is also on board, as we thought, but the device will come with 16GB of storage, not the 32GB we presumed would be the case. A 5MP front camera and 13MP back camera will serve photography needs. There is a Quartz White, Ice Blue, and Charcoal Black color, all three options being planned for the Nexus 5X.
And yes, the Nexus 5X will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box – the very best of Google’s Android experience. The 16GB Nexus 5X will cost $349 this year, as opposed to the $299 price tag for the 16GB Nexus 5 back in 2013. There will likely be a 32GB model, which will cost $399, and since the Nexus 5X is the most budget-friendly Nexus device that is soon to be announced, budget-friendly consumers may well not even pay attention to the Huawei Nexus 6P.
