Google Introduces The Nexus 5X Smartphone

In addition to the Chromecast 2, Google has unveiled the new Nexus 5X, which is equipped with the latest Android OS, Marshmallow.

The smartphone is powered by a 1.8Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and 2GB of RAM, and will be offered in three colors: carbon black, quartz white and ice blue.

Also, Android Marshmallow will make Google's voice assistant "Google Now" more intuitive, by allowing it to perform content searches across the entire phone without leaving the app you have opened. Additionally, the OS will be equipped with a fingerprint scanner.

The Nexus 5X starts from $379 USD, with orders expected to begin shipping in the near future.
