Nexus day is fast approaching, which means that the leaks are intensifying with each passing hour. This latest one, however, comes to us courtesy of a lil' snafu on Amazon India's website. Someone must have clicked that Publish button slightly earlier than the embargo date, and the listings for the 16GB LG Nexus 5X have gone live.
As we previously leaked, the listings seem to verify that the Nexus will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8GHz, have a 5.2" IPS LCD Full HD display, a 2700mAh battery, and a 12.3MP shooter on the back with a 5MP camera on the front. Amazon's specs also mention a 177g weight and a 15.4 x 1 x 7.6 cm dimension, and corroborate the LG-H791 model number that we saw on previous leaked images of the device.
Where Amazon's specs slightly contradict with ours is on the RAM front. The listing mentions 2GB of RAM, whereas our previous information leaned toward 3GB. Now this could be a small error on Amazon's part, a last minute change of the specs, or a different configuration. Amazon only lists the 16GB Nexus 5X, but we know it will also be available with 32GB of storage. As LG has been known to do with some of its smartphones, it might be that the 16GB will get 2GB of RAM, and the 32GB will get the higher 3GB. Of course, this is just speculation on our part. We'll know for sure next week.
Amazon has 3 separate listings for the 16GB Nexus 5X, in 3 different colors: the known Quartz White which has gloriously leaked already, the rather expected Charcoal Black variant, and an interesting Ice Blue color denomination. There are no photos to go with these, but that Ice Blue has me intrigued.
Until we know more, I'm just going to stare at the new Nexus box photos that we shared earlier, and try to use the Force to will it out of the screen and into my hands. Stop laughing, it may work!
