Everything you need to know about Google’s Nexus 5X before it’s announced

After specs for the Nexus 6P leaked over the weekend, now we have specs for that phone’s smaller counterpart, the Nexus 5X, which is expected to be officially announced by Google tomorrow alongside the 6P.

The LG Nexus 5X, the follow-up to 2013’s Nexus 5, has a 5.2-inch FHD LCD screen protected by Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by the Snapdragon 808 processor and comes equipped with 2GB RAM. Its rear camera clocks in at 12.3MP, with a 5MP shooter on the front of the device. It comes with a 2,700mAh non-removable battery. Like the 6P, the 5X has a fingerprint sensor and a Micro USB Type-C charging port and launches with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest version of the operating system.

The Nexus 5X is available in 16GB or 32GB storage options (with no microSD card slot) and color options that include quartz white, ice blue and charcoal black.

According to FCC documents, the 5X is equipped with cellular bands to work on all the major U.S. carriers.

Separate reports from Android Police note that the Nexus 5X will be available to pre-order in the U.S. U.K., Korea, Japan and Ireland following Google’s event on Tuesday. Pricing in the U.S. begins at $379.99 for the 16GB model. AP also notes that the device (and the 6P) will be sold online only and not available in carrier stores.
