Leaked Document Reveals Full Nexus 5X Specs, Confirms 2GB Of RAM

With less than a day to go before Google announces the new 2015 Nexus phones, a document has leaked with full specs for the Nexus 5X. We already got the details on the 6P from the previous slideshow leak, so now you can see how they stack up. Perhaps the most relevant item confirmed by the leak, there's just 2GB of RAM in the 5X as previously rumored.

[Sorry Part 3] Both The Nexus 5X And Nexus 6P Cameras Lack Optical Image Stabilization

Not all of the news that Android Police has been able to nail down about Google's upcoming hardware is positive. In addition to a lack of MicroSD card slots (despite some exciting new functionality in Android Marshmallow) and a lack of wireless charging (despite the fact that the last three generations of Nexus phone had it), both LG's Nexus 5X and Huawei's Nexus 6P won't have optical image stabilization built into their rear cameras.

That's definitely a bit of a bummer, especially since the Nexus 5 (2013) and Nexus 6 (2014) both included the premium camera feature. Optical image stabilization adds extra elements to a camera lens or module that can compensate for a small amount of vibration, such as a slight wobble in the hand of the user.

[Sorry] There Won't Be A MicroSD Card Slot In The Nexus 5X Or 6P

Android 6.0 Marshmallow will have some cool improvements to external storage support. This has led to speculation that Google might be planning to include microSD card slots in the new Nexus phones. Some FCC documents seemed to support that possibility, but we've confirmed with multiple sources that Google won't be offering a microSD card slot. It's still all internal storage in the Nexus phones.

[Weekend Poll] Nexus 5X Or 6P?

Tuesday, we will finally, officially, get to see Google's new Nexus phones in person. At least, we hope so. If not, we'll still likely learn exactly how much they'll cost and when you'll be able to buy one. As to the specs? Well, they've already been about as leaked as much as is possible at this point. We have a pretty clear idea what these phones look like and what kind of hardware they'll be packing. But, to recap.

The Nexus 5X

The Nexus 5X will have a 5.2" 1080p LCD display, Snapdragon 808 six-core processor, likely 2GB of RAM (we're still not 100% sure on this), 16 or 32GB of storage (most likely - there have been no 64GB rumors), a 2700mAh battery, and will come in three colors.

The FCC Just Listed The LG-H790 And LG-H791 (Nexus 5X) With Dimensions, Screen Size, And LTE Bands

Ready for the new Nexus phone announcements next week? Google is, and apparently they're preparing for a launch soon after that. A device that's without a doubt the LG Nexus 5X has arrived at the Federal Communications Commission for documentation and certification, an essential step in selling any wireless device in the United States (and a frequent source for gadget leaks to hungry nerds). This particular phone uses the model number LG-H790, presumably the carrier-agnostic version for the United States, while the international version leaked by an Amazon India listing yesterday is the LG-H791. The LG-H791 has also been listed in the FCC database.

[Exclusive] Behold The Leaked Press Renders Of LG's Nexus 5X In White, Black, And Greenish Blue

We've already gotten a good look at the Huawei-built Nexus 6P, but what of its smaller sibling, the repeatedly leaked Nexus 5X from LG? We've got a full image of that one too. It's definitely the more attractive of this year's two Nexus phones, but at least you've got a choice this time—we usually only have one.

[Exclusive] Leaked Images Of The New Nexus Phone Retail Boxes Confirm 'Nexus 5X' And 'Nexus 6P' Model Names

It's a little less than a week until Google reveals its new Nexus devices in San Francisco, but as seems to happen every year, we know pretty much every detail beforehand. Oddly, one of the last things we knew about the new LG and Huawei Nexus phones were their actual names. A rumor last week suggested that LG's 5.2-inch follow-up to the 2013 Nexus 5 would be called the Nexus 5X, and that Huawei's 5.7-inch flagship would go by Nexus 6P. Android Police can now confirm the rumors with these exclusive images of the retail packaging for both phones. The Nexus 5X is above and the Nexus 6P is below.

Huawei's Nexus Phone Will Be The First Nexus Device To Offer Up To 128GB Of Storage

It took years (and years and years), but manufacturers are finally starting to loosen their grip on the idea that it's OK for flagship phones to come with just 16GB of storage. Last year's Nexus 6 came in 32GB and 64GB flavors, and high-end phones released this year tend to start at 32GB. According to multiple trusted Android Police sources, the Huawei Nexus phone that's been so prominently leaked in the last few weeks will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants.

That would make the Huawei Nexus the first Google developer device to be offered at such a high capacity.

September OTA Roundup For Nexus And GPE Devices

Of our many jobs here at Android Police, one is to make our readers' lives easier when we can. With that in mind, here's a roundup of all the OTA links for the latest security update for Nexus and GPE devices.

For Nexus devices, these OTAs basically serve as security and bugfix updates. On the GPE side of things, these mostly serve to finally patch Stagefright, though there is one exception. This OTA cycle is also seeing the Galaxy S4 GPE updated to Android 5.1 for the first time. That was an update that a lot of owners no doubt thought would never come.
