New leaked images reveal more details about the mint version of the Nexus 5X.
In our exclusive report on the LG-made Nexus 5X (also known as the Nexus 5 2015), we stated that one of the color options available at launch would be “light blue.” Our source wasn’t sure about the official name of the color version (or the exact hue), but this leak from trusted Korean website UnderKG clarifies it – the color will apparently be “mint.”
Two images are being offered as proof, and they look pretty credible. The first one shows the Nexus 5X’s back, with the LG logo at the bottom and the familiar, vertical Nexus logo. The image quality isn’t that good, so the actual color of the device may differ quite a lot from the washed out blue we can see in the image.
The front of the device contains a little throwback to the design of the original Nexus 5, which – in the white and red versions – had a black front and a circular speaker grille in the color of the back. The Nexus 5X features a similar mint accent, and there’s also a feature of the same color on the left side of the phone, though we can’t really tell what that is. (Older renders of the Nexus 5X show both the volume rocker and the power button on the right side of the phone, like on the Nexus 6.) Just under the speaker, you can notice the front facing camera.
UnderKG’s report says the color can be described as “Tennis Court Mint,” but it’s not clear whether that’s the official name of the version or just a descriptor used by the source.
The Nexus 5X will also be offered in the conventional black and white options, and we expect to see all three variants made official on September 29.
According to other reports, the Nexus 5X will feature a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 5.2-inch Full HD display and a fingerprint sensor on the back. The device is expected to start from $400, and you can read more about it, as well as the larger Huawei Nexus, in our rumor roundup.
Incidentally, another device will launch soon in a mint version – the Nextbit Robin. Check out our hands-on with the device.
