After series of rumours and leaks, finally Google launched the much awaited LG nexus 5X yesterday on Nexus-Android Event. LG Nexus five is the successor of two year old Nexus 5 by same manufacturer LG. Nexus 5X has many new features and design upgrades in comparison of it’s predecessor. Nexus 5X will be having new Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Google claimed that Android Marshmallow will become most popular android version and we already know Android 6.0 Marshmallow has many practically useful features like App Permission, Android Pay, App Linking etc.
Few key features of LG Nexus 5X are:-
- 5.2 Inches IPS LCD, 1080 x 1920px resolution (424ppi)

- 5 Mega Pixel front facing selfie camera
- USB Type C with fast charging, LTE Cat6, Bluetooth 4.2 and NFC with Android Pay
- Single front-facing speaker
- Non-removable Li-Po 2700 mAh battery
Nexus 5X has Google’s new Sensor Hub chip inside which will keep notifications and fitness stats up-to-date at all times without drawing a ton of power. It has all updated features and pretty decent design but Google you missed OIS. Yeah I get it !!! Nexus 5x has decent pixel size, camera sensor size and laser assisted autofocus which will produce very nice images but optical image stabilization is must have features for camera lovers. Dual stereo speaker is also not there in Nexus 5x. I guess people whoever may planning to upgrade their old Nexus or other smartphones to Nexus 5x can ignore dual stereo speaker but they will think twice before placing the order because of OIS.
Pre-Order is already started for the customers who are in US, UK, South Korea, Japan and Ireland, starting price is $379 for the 16GB variant.
Google has confirmed that Nexus 5X will start at Rs. 31,900 for 16GB variant, while the 32GB variant will be priced at Rs. 35,900.
