Nexus 5X press renders leak revealing three color options for the stock Android handset

Nexus 5X press renders leak revealing three color options for the stock Android handset
This morning, we showed you a leaked press render featuring the Huawei Nexus 6p. But that is only one of the two new expected Nexus handsets that should be unveiled on September 29th. What about the LG-manufactured Nexus 5X? Well, we are happy to tell you that press renders for LG's third Nexus handset have also leaked this morning, revealing a trio of color options for the stock Android phone.

The three colors pictured are white, black, and a minty blueish-green color called ice blue by Amazon in an earlier leak. We've recently seen the phone pictured in that hue. The rumored specs for the Nexus 5X include a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 808 chipset, featuring a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU, is under the hood. Some benchmark tests, and a leaked Amazon listing, show 2GB of RAM is inside; we want to hold off on making a pronouncement here until after the unveiling. There should be a version of the phone with 32GB of native storage, and one with 64GB of the stuff.

The 13MP rear-facing camera appears to offer laser auto-focus, and there will be a 5MP snapper in front for selfies and video chats. A 2700mAh battery is on board, and the new USB Type-C port is included. Under the slightly protruding camera you will find the fingerprint scanner, and Android 6.0 will be pre-installed.

Less than a week remains before the unveiling, which normally would be prime time for leaks. However, it seems that both new Nexus models have been pretty much revealed. The amount of RAM in the Nexus 5X seems to be the big unknown issue, along with pricing and the launch date for both phones.

Why did they include both the Laser and the flash on the same side? Just ruins the whole phone.

CAN THE HOME BUTTONS BE RE-ARRANGED LIKE LG DOES ON THEIR G3/G4??? WILL THE NEXUS 5X HAVE LG'S DOUBLE TAP TO TURN ON / OFF ???? I hate the back button being on the far left of the homescreen.

IF I WRITE WITH CAPS, DO YOU HEAR ME BETTER THEN!!?? YOU NEED A ROM THAT CAN HANDLE CHANGING OF BUTTONS!!! MANY CAN, AND IT'S A NEXUS, SO IT WILL COME QUICKLY!!! SAME WITH KNOCK ON, BUT USUALLY IT DRAINS MORE BATTERY DUE TO LACK OF HARDWARE TO LISTEN FOR THE TAPS!!! KNOCK OFF IS EASY TO DO WITH NOVA OR ANY OTHER HOMESCREEN APP THAT CAN LINK DOUBLE TAP TO AN APP, SUCH AS SCREEN OFF AND LOCK!!!

What's up with the Search widget. With that colored Google logo, it looks ridiculous and childish, imo. :0 Why didn't they stick with neutral colors, goddamnit. Also, I want this phone. I WANT IT WITH THAT PEBBLE ROUND. OH MY GOD.

Nova Launcher will let you choose the search widget style and the older neutral colors are available.

2GB ram on a stock Android is like 3GB ram on an LG skin or 4GB on TouchWiz I've never had issues with ram on my Nexus 5 with the M Preview (the main memory leak from 5.1 has been fixed)

I love the black color choice. In terms of size and back design i favor Lg but I think Huawei Nexus p6 is the winner against 5x for a couple of reasons: Lg 5x: 2gb ram, front camera 5megapixel, smaller battery. Huawei p6: 3gb, front camera 8 megapixel, Bigger battery. a 2gb ram?, is that really called an upgrade!

Agreed. But,, Huawei scares me as a manufacturer.

I started off thinking the same thing. I thought to myself yesterday "Maybe I'll sell both my phones and I'll buy either a BLU Pure XL or a Huawei Nexus 6 and I'll buy a new ZTE ZMax 2 as my backup phone...But then I'll own two CHINESE PHONES!" Then I realized my two phones I have right now are a OnePlus One and a BLU Studio Energy, I already own two Chinese phones. And my wife's phone is a Huawei Ascend Mate 2. I guess this household embraces Chinese manufacturers.

The more I look the 5X specs, the more I wanna buy the 6P, but idk if the screen will be too big for me. Someone give me a good reason to go for the 5X instead of the 6P. I cannot decide!

It's easier on the wallet. Next year it will be replaced by another LG Nexus 5 that will have the specs you want.

Easier one-handed use and less likely to slip away - specs are not bad and neither an overkill. Money left over

I could probably deal with the 2GB of RAM, but the lack of a 64GB option basically kills this phone for me.

Cheap looking and mediocre specs. Pass.

Nexus = bad screen, bad camera, cheap construction Huawei = built-in Chinese malware and spyware Design and OS - same as the last 5 years. Another winning combo for the droid fanboys and girls.

Lol. You really shouldn't be talking about displays when your champion is sporting an ugly piss yellow 750p display. The Nexus had a similar display in 2012. And the Nexus 10 is probably still top 3-5 in tablet displays. I do all my gaming and mobile movie/tv viewing on it because of that display while my iPad Air is just a web browser.
