Not long ago, reports pointed out that, Google’s Nexus 5 (2015) might be released as the “Nexus 5X.” Now, a new photo showing the alleged device gives a clear view of how the upcoming device would look like.
Many renders and alleged live photos of the Nexus 5 (2015), or Nexus 5X, have cropped up earlier. But the latest image shows the zoomed front part of the handset. Apart from the new image, key specifications of the handset have also been revealed.
According to Phone Arena, the device will come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, in combination with a hexa-core processor. The graphic side of things will apparently be handled by the Adreno 418 GPU, and will be backed by 3 GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
When it comes to camera specification, Nexus 5 (2015) will reportedly sport a 12.3-megapixel rear-facing sensor. In addition, there will also be a 5-megapixel shooter to capture selfies and live video chats. The icing on the cake, however, is the fingerprint scanner that is fine-tuned to work with the new Android Pay mobile payment system. On the software end, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow might come straight out of the box, Phone Arena reported.
Speaking of design, similar to the predecessors, the Nexus 5X will apparently come wrapped in a plastic chassis. The device will carry a 5.2-inch display, aided by 1,440 x 2,560 pixels QHD screen resolution. Also, the Nexus 5 (2015) release date has apparently been set for either late September or early October, according to TechTastic.
Meanwhile, the rumored price of the upcoming Nexus smartphone is set at $399 for the 16 GB variant and $449 for the 32 GB model. Readers should note that, Google has not confirmed the Nexus 5 (2015) specifications or price so far.
