Google Nexus 5X pre-orders will probably start shipping soon as cards are charged

8

Although Google previously announced that LG Nexus 5X pre-orders will start shipping by October 22nd, it looks like some lucky customers might get their hands on the new LG-made Nexus handsets sooner than anticipated.

Some of those who have pre-ordered the LG Nexus 5X have recently started seeing their order status change to "Processing", with credit/debit cards being charged for their order. Usually when a company starts charging cards, the product is ready to start shipping.

If you're more interested in the Huawei Nexus 6P, then note that some orders have changed status to "Pending", but we have yet to hear of cards being charged. While Google previously said that Nexus 5X orders will start shipping by October 22nd, the company made no detailed mention about when the larger Nexus 6P might start reaching those who've pre-ordered the handset. The search engine giant said that the Nexus 6P will launch in October, but a more specific launch estimate is currently unavailable.

The LG Nexus 5X, the 2015 refresh to the original LG Nexus 5, comes with upper mid-range specs such as a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, 2GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, a 12.3MP primary camera, a 5MP secondary shooter, and a 2700mAh battery. As with all Nexus devices, however, the star of the show will likely be the vanilla version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, one that will be served monthly security updates directly from Google itself.

What do you guys think? Are you ready to get your hands on the LG Nexus 5X?
