The wait is over as Google launch the Nexus 5X and is now available for purchase at the Google Play store as well as on selected carriers and stores across the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, India, Korea and Japan. The new Nexus 5X is essentially an update for LG’s Nexus 5 handset which came out two years ago and is one of the top-tier smartphones in the market with up to the latest tech in mobile phone standards.
One of the top advantages of the new Nexus 5X is its underlying OS which the handset boots the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and is being powered by a highly capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset with 2 GB of RAM and either a 16 GB or a 32 GB built-in storage. Also in its arsenal are the 12.3 Megapixel main and 5 Megapixel front cameras which promises better quality photos even in low lighting conditions.
And as far as features are concern, the new Nexus 5X is now equipped with a finger print scanner with native support for Android 6.0 and the new USB Type-C connection which delivers both faster charging and high-speed data compared to the conventional microUSB interface.
The new Nexus 5X is developed and manufactured by LG and is available in the US on the following prices: $380.00 for the 16 GB and $430.00 for the 32 GB variant. LG is also confirming that the handset will also reach other markets in Europe, Asia and Latin America in the weeks to come.
