The All-New Nexus 5X
The Nexus line of Google has always been a type of fan service; in fact, some say that they might even just be ads for Android. However, Google seems to be aiming high with their latest technology. During major commercial blocks, ads for Nexus 5x have been shown. People who watched NFL today might have gotten a look at the latest ad for the all-new Nexus 5X, manufactured by LG.
Unlike the Nexus 6 commercials (which seemed lie Google’s emotional pitches for Android), Google aims to make their supporters appreciate the plastic in its new ad. In fact, the new ad for Nexus 5X which you can see running on TV has a more straightforward appeal with curves, sheen, and specs that might just be what you want.
However, if you aren’t a Nexus fan at all, the new ad might just change your preference. It is set to tune on “Lean On” by Major Lazer (one of the famous tunes that are being used to show off audio features).
Where can you buy the Nexus 5X?
Sorry to break it to those who like going to shops, but the Google Nexus 5X along with Nexus 6P is only sold online since it got released last September 29. It was also announced that Google won’t be selling it through carriers. Apparently, this move aims to promote The Google Store, which is your one-stop shop for everything about Nexus.
It’s a pretty bold move for Google considering Nexus devices will have lesser visibility for most consumers who typically walk-in and shop for mobiles in actual stores; however, Google doesn’t look worried about that. This may be because Google isn’t one who gets too concerned about the financial and commercial success of their Nexus devices, as their main purpose of doing so is to show us the types of devices that can be possible as the Android OS is continually growing and maturing. Aside from that, it also provides cost-efficient alternatives for developers who want to ensure that they have the latest, as well as the greatest environment for testing.
How much is the Google Nexus 5X?
The Google Nexus 5X will be priced at $379 for the 16GB version and is only available in Ireland, Japan, Korea, US, and UK. It comes in three color variations; carbon (black), quartz (white), and ice blue.
Nexus 5X Specs
The LG-built Nexus 5X features a 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, as well as front-facing speakers that enhance audio performance. It has 12.3 MP camera sensors with f/2.0 aperture and larger pixels to allow for better photos in low-light setting. It boasts of a laser auto-focus that enables the camera to have better focus on objects quickly, allowing for faster capture shots.
There is also a fingerprint reader at the back of the phone; which is actually major feature. The new smartphone has a 6-core processor with 2 gigabytes of RAM. However, the memory storage is only limited to 16 GB and 32 GB. This phone is actually a cheaper alternative to iPhone 6s.
