Background and Identification ¶ 

The Nexus 5X, initially announced at Google I/O 2015, was launched in October 2015 alongside it's premium counterpart, the Nexus 6P. Like the Nexus 5, the 5X is still manufactured by LG, although it has a significant spec bump over the 2013 model. This year's model features a 64-bit hexa-core processor along with Android Sensor Hub, an always-on motion coprocessor, and a fingerprint reader.

The 5X is made from a molded polycarbonate housing, and the screen measures in at 5.2 inches. The front face features the single speaker and an RGB status LED. The back sports the all-new fingerprint sensor and 12 MP 4K camera. The device ships in three finishes: Carbon, Quartz, and Ice.
