Google is slated to unveil a pair of new Nexus devices at tomorrow morning’s event in San Francisco. The LG-made Nexus 5X and the Huawei-made Nexus 6P will be the two newest additions to the Nexus line, the former of which will be Google’s lower end, more affordable handset. Through a wide series of leaks and rumors we already have a pretty good idea as to what will be announced tomorrow, at least in terms of Nexus smartphones. But if you wanted a few more last minute details before the big announcement, have no fear. Someone managed to leak a product document giving us a few more missing details on the Nexus 5X.
According to the leak, the Nexus 5X will feature a 2.0GHz hexa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 808 processor, backed by 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Thanks to a recent Amazon listing, we already knew the device would come with Qualcomm’s 808, though we weren’t exactly sure if the device would come with 2 or 3GB of RAM. We’re sure 2GB will be powerful enough to help the device perform most everyday tasks without a hitch, though we know some users will be a bit unhappy with Google’s decision to not include 3GB.

The 5X will also sport a 12.3MP rear-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture, IR laser-assisted autofocus and a broad-spectrum CRI-90 dual flash. Google says the camera’s larger 1.55 μm pixels will be able to capture more light than the Nexus 5 and 6 cameras could, even in the dimmest conditions.
There are a few more specifications in the leak that we haven’t covered quite yet, which you can find attached below:
Along with the big list of specifications comes a product listing for the device, which looks like something you’d see on the Google Store. One of the images gives us a slightly better look at the 5X’s rear-mounted fingerprint scanner which will be able to unlock your phone and give you access to certain applications, such as Android Pay.
You can find the additional product listings at the source link below. Android Authority will be covering tomorrow’s Nexus event, so stay tuned for more details. For now, though, tell us – how do you feel about the device sporting 2GB of RAM? Is this a deal breaker, or are you okay with it?
