Google Nexus 5X price and release date in US, UK and EU
Third time is the charm, as that's how many times LG has received the marching orders from Google to create the poster child of the newest annual Android version - its renowned Nexus handsets. Fresh off the conveyor belts, this year's Nexus 5X is, surprise, surprise, LG's best Nexus yet, donning a 5.2" 1080p screen, hexa-core processor, and an intriguing new 12.3 camera with large individual pixels that should come handy in low-light situations, not to mention the round finger scanner on the back. How much for that goodness?
We are glad you asked, as in recent years Google has been raising the starting price of its Nexus line of handsets each time, offering less and less bang for the buck, especially with China's value-for-money brands' tide rising in the last year or so. The Nexus 5X is, thankfully, an exception to that rule, starting you off at $379 for the 16 GB version, and $429 for the 32-gigger.
In Europe, however, the price might be quite a bit more inflated, at € 479 for the 16 GB version, while the 32 GB model will net you €529. Pretty steep, but let's hope this is this will be the case with early preorder prices. In the U.K., Ireland, and Japan, Google will partner with retailers and carriers, too, not only its official store as in the US. The Nexus 5X and 6P in the UK will go for £339 and £449, respectively, and that's for the basic 16 GB and 32 GB versions of the two.
The Nexus 5X will be available for preorder as soon as today, with availability "later in October". There will also be something called Nexus Protect to insure the phone against accidents for $69 extra, similar to Apple's Care option. Any takers?
