LG Makes Nexus 5X Available in Key Markets
The first smartphone to come loaded with Android’s 6.0 Marshmallow OS was made available on Monday in key markets by manufacturer LG Electronics. The Nexus 5X, the latest phone made by LG in collaboration with Google, is now available on Google Store as well as through major carriers and retailers in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, India, Korea, and Japan, according to the companies. Additional markets in Europe, Latin America, and Asia will roll out the Nexus 5X in the weeks to come.
The Nexus 5X represents the third collaborative effort between Google and LG on an Android smartphone. The device comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, advanced camera features, and a fingerprint sensor. Most notably, though, the nexus 5X comes with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. And as the first phone to be delivered with the latest Android OS, it will be the benchmark by which all future Android smartphones will be measured.
“Nexus devices are about having the newest, purest Android experience possible in an advanced package that doesn’t break the bank,” Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications, said in a statement. “The Nexus 5X was designed from the ground up to live up to the expectations of the millions of Android purists worldwide who won’t accept second best. After two successful collaborations, we think customers will agree that this is our best Nexus to date.”
