Google’s largest dedicated hardware event has brought us many thing to show for. The new Android 6.0, the Chrome Cast, the new tablet Pixel C and not to forget, two new amazing Nexus phones, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
Display and Build
Nexus 5X has a dimension of 147 X 72.6 X 7.9 mm and weight 136 gm. The phone comes with 5.2 inch 1080p liquid crystal display (resolution 1080 by 1920). The phone is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The security focus is improved with a fingerprint scanner for Android Pay and Google Play on the back just below the camera to suit with the way you naturally hold the phone.
Nexus 5X Camera
The camera of the phone has significantly improved from Nexus 5. The focus on low-light shooting continues with the Laser autofocus. The 12.3 MP sensor rear shooter comes with 1.55 micron pixels, which roughly is equivalent to a ½.3’’ sensor format. However, the front camera is only 5MP.
Nexus 5X Power and Performance
The SoC of the phone moves to 64-bit computing era, from Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 to 808 with Adreno 418 GPU and 2GHz hexacore processor. The RAM memory and internal NAND has remained the same, ie. 2GB, which is quite of a disappointment. The 808 core is built on a more advanced process and the hexacore is specifically designed for low-power use. The phone comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow powered by 2700 mAh non-removable battery with USB Type C charging port with fast charging.
Nexus 5X Storage
The Nexus 5X storage comes with two options – 16 GB and 32 GB to choose from. Though the new Android Marshmallow comes with microSD card encryption, the phone has no microSD card expansion and the new feature goes to waste on the Nexus 5X.
The phone has a single front-facing speaker and also has 3 microphones (1 on top, 1 front and 1 bottom)
