SYDNEY, 30 September 2015 – LG Electronics (LG) and Google today globally unveiled the result of the companies’ third collaborative effort. Nexus 5X smartphone features Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google’s newest operating system for mobile devices, and delivers impressive performance, better imaging and enhanced security.  It also delivers the best of Google and LG know-how in a single package.



Nexus 5X features a sharp 5.2-inch 423ppi Full HD IPS display with advanced In-Cell Touch technology that enables faster recognition and crisper images. The Nexus 5X is Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 Processor which delivers smooth and effortless performance for even the most demanding tasks with its fast Type-C USB port.



Both the front and the rear cameras on Nexus 5X have been improved, with a 12.3MP camera on the back and a 5MP camera in front. The 1.55µm sensor on the rear camera and 1.4µm above the display absorb more light than any previous Nexus device, delivering brighter photos with stunning details in less than ideal lighting conditions. Nexus 5X is also capable of capturing 4K and slow-motion videos, making this smartphone the most advanced multimedia Nexus device to date that LG has produced.



Nexus 5X is more secure than ever and simpler to use with Nexus Imprint, a fingerprint sensor conveniently located on the back, where your finger naturally falls. A single touch of the sensor is all it takes to power on and unlock Nexus 5X for immediate use.

“We are excited to be able to work with Google again on developing Nexus 5X, our best Nexus yet,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications.” This time, we wanted to deliver the best hardware for Google’s most advanced software and we’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished together.”

Nexus 5X will initially be available for pre-order on the Google Store (store.google.com) starting today in the United States, Canada, UK, Ireland, Korea and Japan with shipping to start late next month. Starting October 19, Nexus 5X will begin rolling out to additional markets with nearly 40 countries to offer the device via Google Store or local retail establishments in the fourth quarter.
