Nexus 5X Officially Announced – See All The Images And Details Right Here To See How Far LG And Google Have Come

Aesthetically, there is not much difference between Nexus 5 and Nexus 5X, but we all know that the latter brings far more to the table than its predecessor ever did. Starting off, Nexus 5X has a 5.2 inch screen that renders a 1080p resolution. According to the hardware details stated in the event, the smartphone is powered by a 64-bit processor, but seeing as how there have been several leaks concerning Snapdragon 808 being tied to this handset, the 64-bit processor is going to feature six cores.

There was no indication of the amount of RAM, but we are confident that Nexus 5X will have 2GB of LPDDR4 present in it. One of the biggest improvements incorporated into the newly announced smartphone is that it features a Type-C USB port, which will not only be compatible with Quick Charge 2.0, but will also be able to provide high transfer speeds when you want to shift large amounts of data between one device to the other.

Another big upgrade added to Nexus 5X is its 12.3MP rear camera sensor. The sensor has been made by Sony so you can rest assure that it will be able to capture images effectively. Additionally, it also sports a feature called laser-detect autofocus, where users will effortlessly be able to focus on the object they are attempting to capture on their devices.

Furthermore, the front camera sensor supports HDR photographs and apart from the rear camera capturing 4K videos, slow-motion capture have also been added. In order to edit out the videos accurately, Nexus 5X can capture slow-motion videos at 120FPS, which will really allow you to give you a whole lot of room when you get down to editing the videos. If you thought that was over, then there is one more unique feature that can be added to that list; smart burst. This feature can take photos at 30FPS in order to make GIFs and take out a special image that will become a part of your memory.

As for which colors will Nexus 5X will be available to purchase in; the device sports the following combinations:

  • Carbon Black
  • Sports White
  • Ice Blue

Nexus 5X also has a fingerprint scanner, which Google has branded it as Nexus Imprint. According to Burke, recognizing a fingerprint takes less than 600 milliseconds, which is highly impressive. The fingerprint scanner will also be able to facilitate payments through Android Pay.

The device will ship out later in October and will be running Android Marshmallow 6.0. Take a look at complete pricing and pre-order details here and an official video posted by Google below for your viewing pleasure.
