Google unveiled the Nexus 5X back in September, alongside the larger, range-topping Nexus 6P, as a 'showcase' device for Android 6.0 Marshmallow - and now, three months after its launch, the LG-made handset has got a permanent price cut.
The Nexus 5X first went on sale in October, priced at $379 for the model with 16GB of storage, or $429 for the 32GB variant. Following various limited-time promotional discounts in recent weeks, Google has now reduced the price of the device by $30 on a permanent basis.
That means that the Nexus 5X now starts at $349, but its specs remain unchanged, including:
- 5.2-inch LCD with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution
- 64-bit hexa-core 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and Adreno 418 GPU
- 2GB LPDDR3 RAM
- 16GB / 32GB storage
- 12.3MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture, infrared-assisted autofocus and 4K video recording
- 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture
- Fingerprint sensor
- USB Type-C connector
- Dual-front speakers
- 2700mAh battery
- 147 x 72.6 x 7.9mm; 136g
