Today, Google launched the successor to the Nexus 5 that was released in 2013. The Nexus 5X, another Nexus phone manufactured by LG, brings Google’s line of hardware back to a place of portability and affordability. This phone is smaller than last year’s Nexus 6 and the new Nexus 6P while featuring high-end specifications. And, of course, it has the latest version of Android. All of this is wrapped in a package that is more affordable than every other flagship on the market today.
- 5.2-inch Full HD (1920×1080) LCD display (Gorilla Glass 3 protection)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor
- 2GB RAM
- 12.3MP / 5MP cameras
- 32GB/64GB of internal storage

The Nexus 5X can be pre-ordered in select markets starting today. Color options are Carbon Black, Quartz White and Ice Blue. Two two storage sizes — 16GB or 32GB — cost $379 and $429, respectively. Those who do end up pre-ordering the Nexus 5X or the Nexus 6P will get a free 90-day subscription to Google Play Music as well as a credit to the Play Store worth $50.
