Amazon is a great place to find movies, TV shows, and even little dash buttons for one-click ordering. Turns out it’s also a great place to find leaks, as a new listing appears to have completely revealed Google’s upcoming Nexus 5X.
Although the listings are no longer up, the damage has been done. All of the important specs were revealed, leaving little to the imagination, especially since we’ve seen the Nexus 5X in the flesh on multiple occasions. Heck, we’ve even seen the device’s box; we’ve pretty much reached iPhone-levels of leakage, which means Google’s September 29 event will be more of a formality since we pretty much know all of the big details.
According to Amazon, the Nexus 5X will sport a 5.2-inch IPS LCD (1920 x 1080, 423ppi), Android Marshmallow, a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 processor, a 12.3-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, a 2700mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The listing doesn’t mention a fingerprint sensor, though you can bet the Nexus 5X will have one. Meanwhile, we’re not sure if the device will support things like wireless charging, expandable storage, and whether or not it’ll sport a USB-C connection—all things we’ve heard it may or may not have.
As yesterday’s leak showed, the Nexus 5X will come in quartz white, ice blue and charcoal black versions giving users a nice selection of colors at launch. A few key details not mentioned by Amazon is how much the Nexus 5X will cost, and when it will be available. While the phone’s specs aren’t bad, they’re certainly not the latest and greatest, which means we can expect the device to be pretty affordable at launch. But how affordable? My guess is the price will start at $349, and go up based on storage options.
We’re so close to the Nexus 5X that we can taste it. But if Google’s smaller device isn’t your flavor of choice, perhaps you’ll be more satisfied with the Nexus 6P, which is expected to be the more powerful between the two devices. We’ll know much more when Google unveils these phones at its event next week.
