The search company Google and electronics giant LG are now back in each other's arms again as the new Google Nexus 5X smartphone just got officially announced, which is manufactured by LG. There are two Nexus smartphones Google unveiled, the bigger Nexus 6P made by Huawei and this one. For this post, we will talk about the Nexus 5X.
The Google Nexus 5X is a beautiful smartphone like many of its predecessors, and as expected from a newest Google-sold smart device, the Nexus 5X will be released running the newest Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box. I heard old Nexus devices will start receiving Android 6 Marshmallow update starting next week, then followed by Google One devices. Lucky users.
"While we love all the Android devices out there, every year we build Nexus devices to show off the latest and greatest, directly from the people who built Android. Today we’re introducing the latest Nexus treats, both running Marshmallow, sweetened by amazing apps and sandwiched by some cutting-edge hardware," said Google in a blog post.
Google implemented a new feature on this Nexus 5X on its back panel that is called Nexus Imprint. In other words, Nexus Imprint is a fingerprint scanner which can be used for unlocking the device, make purchases via Google Pay or Google Play store. Another thing is the inclusion of the new USB Type-C port for more connectivity convenience.
