Nexus 5X dummy handled on video, preorder prices in Europe leak

Nexus 5X dummy handled on video, preorder prices in Europe leak
The Google Nexus 5X and 6P will be announced in a few short hours, but they are already up for preorder over at a Dutch e-tailer, with what seem to be a bit inflated preorder price tags. The LG-made Nexus 5X will be sold there at € 479 for the 16 GB version, while the 32 GB model will net you €529. That's a rather startling difference from the $379 that the 5X will allegedly go for in the US

The Huawei Nexus 6P is listed with another jaw-dropper - a €649 tag that differs quite a bit from the speculated USD 500 on this side of the pond. Let's hope that these are early preorder tags, and when the new Google Nexus handsets go officially on sale in Europe, their prices will be lower.

In the meantime, an alleged dummy of the "Tennis Court Mint" LG Nexus 5X has popped up, and it looks every bit as what we've seen in renders and leaked slideshow presentations about the phone so far. As a reminder, the 5X will come equipped with a 5.2" 1080p display, Snapdragon 808 chipset, 2 GB of RAM, and a fresh 12.3 MP camera with 1.55 micron pixels. We can't wait for the new Nexus handsets to land at noon Eastern time, and will be at Google's event live, bringing the fun closer to you as always.

Yep. LG G4 is available for less then that in Europe. Not to mention LG G4 is a much better phone than this POS. Bigger and higher res screen, much better camera and 3GB Ram, larger battery, etc. Thanks, Google. As if the phone wasn't enough ugly looking already, you went ahead and messed the pricing too.

If only the Nexus 5X is priced below $300, it would be an excellent midranger.

No way I'm paying that for these phones, that sucks kind of looking forward to this. I guess we'll just have to see what the numbers really are.

Nexus always cost higher outside US. Those whining above were never going to buy it anyway.
