Here is some good news for those who were planning to purchase the Nexus 5X smartphone during the holiday season but never got the chance. Google has just revealed that it is permanently lowering the price of the Android powered device by $30, which means that from its previous price of $379, the 16 gigabyte edition of the Nexus 5X can now be bought for $349. As for the 32 gigabyte edition of the Nexus 5X, its original price of $429 has now been reduced to $399
Google had previously introduced discounted deals for the Nexus 5X in the last few months. As a matter of fact, there came a time when the tech giant offered the handset with a discount as generous as $80. This time, however, the company has made it clear that the change in price is permanent, which means that from now on, the Nexus 5X’s price can not get any higher than $349. And considering that Google continues to offer ground shipping absolutely free of charge on all purchases, this is quite an impressive deal, indeed.
With the generous price reduction, the LG built Nexus 5X will now be able to have an advantage price wise over other similar high profile smartphone offerings such as Motorola’s Moto X Pure Edition which goes for $400 and even the OnePlus 2 handset which goes for $329. Both the Moto X and OnePlus 2 are highly rated Android devices, but the Nexus 5X is produced by Google itself, and is considered a purer Android handset with less customization and bloatware.
Google first introduced the Nexus 5X back in September of last year, alongside another Nexus device, the Nexus 6P, built by Chinese phone maker Huawei. The Nexus 5X is the third collaborative effort between Google and LG, coming after earlier devices such as the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 5.
As expected of any Nexus device, the Nexus 5X boasts impressive specifications, including a 5.2 inch display screen with 1,920 by 1,080 pixel resolution, flanked by a 12.3 megapixel camera on the rear side and a 5 megapixel camera on the front side. It is powered by a 1.8 GigaHertz six core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip set, plus the Adreno 418 graphics processor unit, supported with 2 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) as well as 16 gigabytes or 32 gigabytes of onboard storage. The device features a 2,700 mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest version of Google’s Android mobile operating system.
