At the Google’s Nexus and Android event, LG finally unveiled the much-awaited Nexus 5X. Just like the Huawei Nexus 6P, this one will also be up for pre-orders on Google Play Store in the U.S., UK, Ireland, and Japan, from September 29 onwards.

LG Nexus 5XThe smartphone comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and is powered by a 64-bit hexa-core Snapdragon 808 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM. The device will be available in two non-expandable storage variants — 16GB and 32GB. It features a 12.3-megapixel primary camera with dual-tone LED flash, 1.55-micron sensor, along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Unfortunately, the camera lacks Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), but that does not stop it from shooting 2160p videos. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The LG Nexus 5X supports connectivity options such as 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, USB Type-C, GPS, and is backed by a 2,700 mAh battery. The device also features always-on Google Now feature, which can work even the screen is off. It measures 147 x 72.6 x 7.9 mm and weighs 136 grams, which makes it thinner than the Nexus 6. The weight of the Nexus 7 is slightly heavier than the Nexus 5 (130 grams) because of the Fingerprint sensor that is set up at the back of the device for screen lock functionality. It will be available in Carbon Black, Quartz White, and Ice Blue color options, starting at Rs. 31,900 in India, as per Google Play India listing.

To throw more light on the 4G LTE support, the US models do not support Indian bands, but the one listed on the Play Store India does mention support for Indian bands.
