Google Nexus 5X full specs leak out: all day battery life, "powerful" camera, and fingerprint sensor included

Google Nexus 5X full specs leak out: all day battery life,
Earlier today, we told you that the LG-made Nexus 5X and the Huawei-made Nexus 6P should be available to pre-order starting tomorrow, immediately after Google will announce them. While we're certain that Google will have plenty of interesting things to share about its new smartphones, it looks like an almost complete list of Nexus 5X specs has already leaked out, together with what seems to be an official presentation of the handset.

Apparently, Google is touting the Nexus 5X as an "all-around champ" that offers "top-line performance and all day battery life" at "an affordable price." As previously rumored, the handset sports a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels (fingerprint- and smudge-resistant), and will obviously run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Like the larger Nexus 6P, the Nexus 5X features a fingerprint scanner on the back: reportedly, "one touch turns on your phone and unlocks compatible apps."

Powered by a six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz, the 5X seems to be offering only 2 GB of RAM, plus 16 GB (or 32 GB, depending on model) of non-expandable storage space. The device measures 147 x 72.6 x 7.9 mm, and weighs 136 grams. Its battery capacity isn't mentioned, but "all day" usage doesn't sound bad to us.

What about that "powerful" camera mentioned in the title? Well, the Nexus 5X has a 12.3 MP rear camera which, reportedly, captures more light compared to the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 5 2013. That's due to its larger pixel size (1.55 µ) and the f/2.0 aperture. Laser autofocus, dual LED flash, and 4K video recording are also included. The front-facing camera of the new Nexus is a 5 MP one with f/2/2 aperture.

Prices for the Google Nexus 5X 16 GB should start at $379 - unlocked. So, who's looking forward to buying this new Nexus?

Too big, make a 4.7 or something close to that PLEASE. Z5 is the closest thing we get damnit and that might be crippled.

Unfortunately, you probably will need to get used to 5-5.2" for flagships. But hey, hopefully will smaller and smaller bezels, 5.2" may feel like a 4.7" device.

Just hijacking the top comment to say that this is clearly fake > 4K (340 fps) video capture The best slo mo we have seen is 720p at 240 fps There's no way this is 4K at 340 fps The processing and IO need for that is insane

No because the screen of a 5.2 alone is large enough to force you to fully stretch across, so bezels won't matter that much. I want a 4.7 inch phone with slim bezels so it is all around comfortable. The Z5 compact isn't too bad, but the chip might cause issues, and the only other option is the iPhone, which is never a real consideration (ridiculous bezels and iOS) .

You mean compact right, because Z5 is 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm

Samsungphanboy is right. If you don't like this trend then stick to you're iphone which is exactly what you want - 4.7 inches.

Ohhhh snap! I can see Nexus cameras are finally better than DECENT now! Maybe it'll be in the top 10 in Dxomark.

The Nexus 6 was in the top 10 before newer phones were released. It may have been in the top 5.

Something close to a 4.7 inch iPhone is every Android phone in existence at 5 inches. The iPhone is bezelicious. If you mean 4.7 as in a 1st gen Moto X, then get the Alpha 2 if that is ever made. Or the HTC A9 if they don't screw it up, they will though. Lol

Not much phone will be 4.7" now as it is really small actually, especially on Android which needs some space for the navigation bar.

I have a Z3 and I'd like to know wehat you mean by 'crippled'? Sony never lags, very light under touch/swipe. No heavy skin or major bloat. They do get updates, albeit slightly late.

SD 810 issues. The chip is hot and hungry, so won't be the best of choices.

Maybe it's because NO ONE wants to read your constant, repetitive posts. You're spamming the comments section with this nonsense. And spam is against the rules.

I think that they should launch 3 models for different persons. One with standard size (5.2),one with large size (5.7)and one with compact size (4.5 or 4.7).

I haven't decided. At this point it's size preference and hopefully you guys get a fast review.

I thought SD808 had 4 cores at 1.8ghz and 4 at 1.4ghz? What's with the 2.0ghz, isn't that the speed of the SD810?

30. hwb01

808 has 6 cores.

I asked the same question on another site as well. Curious to know if this is a new overclocked version..

Also 379.00 is certainly overpriced for this phone.

20. QWERTYphone

Agreed. It's worth $200 at best.

Every phone is overpriced. That's why.

31. hwb01

But it will probably sell very well because of Google and LG branding, just how it is in America

No it won't. Most people don't know about the Nexus line and it will only be sold online.

I expect each one of you who call this overpriced comment furiously on Apple/Samsung articles, which include phones costing from $700 to over $1K, all of which cost ~$200-300 to make... I'm afraid that's not going to happen

This!

The Samsung prices don't factor the billions it costs for their factories and the factory workers. Do you honestly think that a Note 5 only costs the same amount as an iPhone 6? Please....the Wacom digitizer alone is probably pretty expensive and they don't reuse the same body for two years in a row like Apple. I agree that the $200 tops comments are ridiculous though, I mean it's pretty much a redesigned G4 and that was $700. The iPhone prices are ridiculous though and yes more people should bitch about it.

Really? Explain.
