In a very different move compared to last few years, Google will be releasing two Nexus devices this year – one by Huawei and one by LG. LG’s Nexus device will be a revamped version of Nexus 5. Previously it was termed Nexus 5 (2015) but LG will officially name it as Nexus 5X.
Nexus 5 was a hugely popular device due to it offering high end specs at a relatively low price. LG hope to price on to this popularity.
A leaked image has shown the design of Nexus 5X. It will feature a circular rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, along a raised camera and the dual LED flash on the side.
One disappointment in the Nexus 5X will be the plastic back cover. Most of the flagships nowadays have done away with plastic so this will not go down well with consumers.
Nexus 5X will be available in white, black, and light blue colours. It will cost $50 more than the old Nexus 5 i.e. $400.
