Nexus 5X now available in Europe, Chromecast included in some markets
There’s no denying Google tends to be a bit more generous with its home market (USA). There’s a lot of factors that may get in the way of a smooth launch, but it seems Google is learning and today European Nexus fans have something to celebrate.
The Nexus 5X has finally made it over the Atlantic, and into European markets. Buying one is only a matter of heading into the Google Play Store (from your country) and going through the purchase process. There is one downside our fellow European Nexus fans will have to deal with, though – the phone is actually more expensive there.
The Nexus 5X is priced at €479 (16 GB) and €529 (32 GB). In the USA you can score the same phone for only $379. That’s a huge difference considering €479 currently translates to about $528 USD. But this doesn’t mean the phone isn’t worth it. The Nexus 5X is still a great smartphone!
You can read our Nexus 5X review to learn all the pros and cons stapled to this handset. In a nutshell, this is a mid-end device with high-end aspirations. But the coolest part is that the price stays low! Specs include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 808 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of internal storage, a 12.3 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front shooter and a 2700 mAh battery.
Those who need a little more convincing will be glad to hear Google is throwing in a little freebie in certain European markets. Depending on your country, you might be getting a free Chromecast with the purchase of a Nexus 5X. The guys over at Android Police have been asking around and found out this deal is valid in Spain, Italy, Germany and France.
No verification on other countries has emerged, but if you see the deal live in your market, please hit the comments and let us know! By the way – don’t expect to get your order shipped right away. Nexus 5X units won’t be heading out the door until November 9th. Are any of you signing up?
