On the 29th of September, Google lifted the lid on the LG Nexus 5X, the successor of the LG Nexus 5. The smartphone was available for pre-order soon after, but the search giant failed to say when the device would start shipping, until now.
Ships on the 22nd of October
The Google Store now lists that the LG Nexus 5X will start shipping to customers that pre-ordered the device on the 22nd of October. So, if you pre-ordered the device, you are likely to have your new smartphone delivered to your doorstep sometime next week.
To recap, the LG Nexus 5X sports a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. This works out to a pixel density of 424 ppi. Its camera combo consists of a 12.3-megapixel rear-facing camera with laser autofocus and dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that will take care of selfies and video chat. It is available in two storage options – 16 GB and 32 GB. Sadly, there is no microSD card support. On the back of the device is a fingerprint sensor. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor (four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.44 GHz, two Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 1.82 GHz, and an Adreno 418 GPU to handle graphics), coupled with 2 GB of RAM. It comes with a Type C USB connector, which means you never have to worry about plugging in the cable the wrong way ever again. To keep the lights on, the smartphone comes with a non-removable 2,700 mAh battery. It measures 147 x 72.6 x 7.9 mm. Like every new Nexus device, the 5X runs the latest version of Android – Android 6.0 (Marshmallow). Colour options include white and blue.
This year, Google lifted the lid on not one but two Nexus devices. Other than the Nexus 5X smartphone, the search giant also unveiled the Huawei Nexus 6P phablet.
