After all leaks that have held us in suspense throughout the past months, the Nexus 5X Korean LG will be unveiled in just under six hours as part of a press conference organized by Google. If you are the type to enjoy the last minutes of leaks, you may be pleased to learn that first video handling of the new LG Nexus 5X just been published by UnderKG.
It is to be kept in mind that the device in the video is not an actual phone. It’s a prototype of the phone – and so the internals are not present. The absence of most of the internal components and particularly its motherboard unfortunately prevents us to see the LG Nexus 5X in action.
It can be seen in the video that the previous leaks were very accurate and that the LG Nexus 5X has a fingerprint scanner at the back of the device. The other thing you’ll notice is the more evident camera bump in the device.
Other than that, there’s also a colour difference – the white is matt white – more of a mint white, more than that on the Nexus 5. Also the Top and bottom bezels are huge.
