Nexus 5X specs revealed in leaked presentation


OK, so Google probably isn’t the best at keeping a tight lid on things. With all that we’ve heard of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P lately, even more is rushing in during the final hours leading up to today’s announcements.

Earlier today, we saw the Nexus 5X leaked in full flesh on video, and now a leaked presentation gives us a very full sheet of specs to ponder. Let’s not waste any time:

  • 5.2-inch full HD LCD display (1920 x 1080, 424 ppi) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and oleophobic coating
  • 12.3MP rear camera, f/2.0 aperture, IR laser-assisted autofocus, broad spectrum dual flash and 4K video recording
  • 5.0MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture
  • 2GHz Hexa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 with Adreno 418 GPU
  • 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage
  • Fingerprint scanner, “Sensor Hub,” Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer, Proximity Sensors, Ambient Light sensor and “Android Context Hub”
  • microUSB Type-C
  • 147 x 27.6 x 7.9mm, 136 g
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Unfortunately we don’t get much in the way of information about wireless connectivity, but earlier leaks and FCC visits have revealed the presence of an NFC chip, and we should expect dual-band WiFi ac and at least Bluetooth 4.0 LE. We also know that it’ll have all the 4G LTE radios it’ll need to be used on nearly every major carrier in the United States and Canada.

With just hours to go (the event kicks off at 12PM New York time, 9AM San Francisco time, and 5PM London time), it won’t be long before we get all the full details we’re craving. How’s the Nexus 5X sounding to you?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
