We already have a good idea of what the new Google Nexus 6P will look like. But what about the smaller Nexus 5X?

A few new leaks have got us covered.

Android Police has posted two images that give us a pretty good look at the front and back of the 5.2 inch smartphone built by LG. It’s expected to come in black, white, or light green varieties.

Meanwhile, a few other leaks show us the phones from different angles.

If you believe what you read on the internet, the phone should have a 5.2 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, a USB Type-C connector, fingerprint scanner, and 16GB to 32GB of storage. It should ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow software.

There have been reports suggesting the phone could have 2GB of RAM, while other suggest it has 3GB. Maybe there will be two options?

We should know more on September 29th. Google is holding an event on that day, and there’s a good chance that’s when the company will officially unveil the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and a new Chromecast.

I’ve been using a Google Nexus 5 for the past two years, and I’d been thinking about updating to the Nexus 5X. But unless the new model offers substantially longer battery life, I might hang onto my aging phone for a bit longer. It’s still pretty fast, supports the latest versions of Android, and most importantly, it’s more pocket-sized than most flagship phones on the market today.

What do you think? Are you planning to pick up a next-gen Nexus phone?

  1. With the Nexus 6 liquidating at $350, I hope they don’t price the new 5X at over $400… or they will be liquidating the unsold phones for $250 a year from now. G4 is $400 unlocked now.

  2. I’ll stick with the Nexus 6, and G4. The new one’s display isn’t big enough for my taste, and if I jump on any phone, it’ll be Windows, with an Intel CPU.

  3. I am interested in a phone that gets security updates independent of the carrier I have. The Moto X and Nexus 5 look interesting. But I may wait another year to upgrade my HTC One M8. My first one failed at 11 months, and Verizon replaced it just this past May. I still like everything about it so far.

  4. Long time Android user here…Might be jumping on the new Windows Phones or the iPhone next go round. I’m not really impressed with any of the new Android phones coming out thus far.

    1. Nextbit Robin or moto x pure edition isn’t impressive?
      Well project Ara will blow everything out of the water, industry changer!
      I am interested in the new Microsoft phones with contiuum but they still lack apps.

      1. The Nexbit Robin does look nice, and the Moto X pure is okay. I don’t know, maybe i’m just wanting A change, as I’ve been a loyal Android phone user for a long time. I’ve used iPhones in the past for a couple of weeks, and they’ve been great, but that was back in the 4 and 4S days, and they were really too small. We’ll see, I just need to get off Verizon, so I can actually have a decent selection of phones.

  5. Same here, Brad. And I didn’t attempt battery surgery, so the ol’ power plant is fading fast. But I think I’ll see what improvements Doze provides before pulling the trigger.

  6. If Android updates were worth getting excited about, I might care about staying with the Nexus brand. However, that isn’t the case. Anyone getting excited about a new Android version? Seriously?

    1. Most people couldn’t care less about what version of Android their phone has, as long as it can run the apps they want to use.

  7. I personally would be waiting 1 extra year (Using N5 myself as well)
    Besides the reasons already listed (still fast enough, still supports latest versions of Android), the other big thing is that the snapdragon 808 (and 810) is only a small step up from the 800, and will be handily beaten compared to the 820, if information regarding the 820 is correct.
