Those who purchased Google’s newest Nexus 5X smartphone will be glad to know Google just confirmed the date the device will begin shipping.
The Nexus 5X listing recently changed from “shipping in the coming weeks” to “will ship October 22.” However, this will only be for those who purchased the black and white colored variants. Unfortunately, the mint color option is still not ready for the prime time. Pre-orders for the device have remained up on the Google Store. So, if you are interested in pre-ordering the device, you can do so by October 22 and receive a $50 credit to the Google Play Store in addition to 90 days free for Play Music all access.
The Nexus 5X comes in 16GB and 32GB options. The 16GB variant costs $379 and the 32GB will cost an additional $50 at $429. The device will include Google’s latest Android 6.0 on board along with a new built-in fingerprint scanner for mobile payments. Those waiting on the Nexus 6P will have to wait a little longer. The listing still states the device will ship in 4-5 weeks.
