Google is typically good about keeping secrets under wraps, but ever since the summer hit, it seems as though the floodgates have opened up. Today, a series of official-looking documents seem to spoil the Nexus 5X party, eliminating the element of surprise from Google’s event on Tuesday.
According to the document, the Nexus 5X will sport a 5.2-inch Full HD screen, a 12-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, 4K video at 340 fps, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a fingerprint sensor, Android 6.0 and USB-C. It doesn’t look like there will be wireless charging, and there’s no mention of expandable storage.
All told, the Nexus 5X is definitely an upgrade over the original Nexus 5, but only marginally. That is no way, shape, or form means it’s going to be a bad device. Sure, the specs aren’t the latest and greatest, but the Nexus 5X is meant to offer a smooth, enjoyable, vanilla Android experience—and with a good camera. The addition of a fingerprint sensor is huge as well.
While battery life isn’t officially mentioned, Google does say it will last all day. We’ll have to put those claims to the test when the device officially launches, but with Android features like Doze, we’re guessing getting to the end of the day on a single charge shouldn’t be a problem.
