It’s the Android maker’s newly announced Nexus device that carries on the tradition as a budget-friendly phone without the frills and inclusions often added by the smartphone manufacturer. The Nexus 5X smartphone, one of the two new beacons for those individuals who really want a “pure Android” device, became available on Monday.
Made by LG for Google, the Nexus 5X is up for sale at the online Google Store and also through major wireless carriers and retailers in the United States (US), United Kingdom (UK), Canada, Ireland, India, Korea, and Japan.
The Nexus 5X phones don’t offer all the add-ons and extra features typically found on smartphones made by Samsung, LG and other vendors, but the phones also come unlocked, meaning users can tinker with them. Designed specifically for those who want the Android mobile software without all the whistles and tweaks imposed by the hardware manufacturers as well as the wireless carriers.
Powered by a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, the Nexus 5X offers a 5.2-inch, 1,920×1,080-pixel screen with a 12.3-megapixel rear camera. Integrated with a USB Type-C connection allowing the device for faster charging. A fingerprint sensor rests on the rear of the gadget so that you can press it if you’re holding the phone with one hand.
Most importantly, the Huawei made Nexus 6P and LG’s Nexus 5X are the first smartphones on the market to come with running the newest update of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The phone is available in three colors: carbon black, quartz white and ice blue.
The new LG phone, Nexus 5X will travel to additional markets in Europe, Asia and Latin America over the following weeks, according to Google.
The Nexus 5X is priced at $379 (£339, AU$659) for the 16-gigabyte version and $429 (£379, AU$759) for the 32GB edition. Also like to checkout: How Best Compared: Nexus 5X Vs Nexus 6P Vs iPhone 6s Vs iPhone 6s Plus Specs And Price.
