Nexus 5X Runs Marshmallow and is Project Fi Ready
Keep in mind that the 5X was released at the same time as Marshmallow so you won’t have to worry about upgrades on this device. It already has the latest version of Android installed. Also keep in mind that this device is Project Fi ready and if you are not a Fi user, you can request a SIM at the time you check out to get started in Google’s mobile carrier service.
The specs of the Nexus 5X are impressive.
It has a 5.2″ display with 1920×1080 resolution, so full HD.
That resolution gives you 424PPI so it is easy on the eyes, is protected in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and has oleophobic coating to keep it finger print resistant. The Nexus 5X is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and is coupled with the Adreno 408 GPU. It will have 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and will come with 16GB or 32GB of storage which cannot be expanded (no MicroSD card slot). The rear camera will be a 12.3MP shooter with an f/2.0 aperture. The front camera will be an f/2.2 aperture with a 5MP sensor. It supports Bluetooth 4.0LE, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, NFC and has stereo speakers.
Dimension wise it will be 147 x 72.6 x 7.9 mm in size and will weight a comfortable 136 grams.
As for other key features, the Nexus 5X will have a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device and will have an Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer, Proximity and Ambient light sensor. It will have a USB Type-C connector and have a 2700mAh battery. That battery may seem small but with the improvements in Marshmallow like Doze, it should give you all day performance.
There is no indication of how long this sale will last so if you are looking to pick up a 5X, this weekend would be the time to do it.
