Nexus 5x dummy unit hands-on video surfaces ahead of unveil

Google’s big Nexus event is just a few hours away, but the leaks keep rolling in. We’ve already seen plenty of photos and renders of the rumored Nexus 5X. Now a new video claims to go hands-on with a near-complete version of the stock Android phone.

UnderKG managed to get its hands on a prototype of the Nexus 5X. It’s missing some key inner components so it can’t actually power on, but we do we get a very good look at the outside of the device. The video reveals where Google and LG placed the various buttons and ports around the new phone. It also appears to confirm the inclusion of a fingerprint reader on the back, along with a mint green color option.

The video also compares the Nexus 5X to a few older phones, including the original Nexus 5. This 2015 model allegedly offers a bigger display at 5.2 inches across (compared to its 4.95-inch predecessor), but it appears to feature a similar overall footprint thanks to thinner bezels. Unfortunately it looks like the new Nexus will sport a pretty big camera hump as well.

The Nexus 5X is expected to come with a 1080p display, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a Snapdragon 808 processor, a fingerprint reader, USB-C, 2GB of RAM and 16/32GB of non-expandable storage. Google also looks set to unveil a phablet-sized Nexus 6P, along with a new Chromecast and a few other surprises.

We’ll be covering the event live from San Francisco starting at 9am Pacific so stay tuned. For now you can check out the Nexus 5X in the video above, or see the gallery below for an even closer look.
