Nexus 5X appears live on video just hours ahead of reveal

First time we've seen it moving

In a few hours Google will officially announce the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P – but that's not before we get one last tasty leak suggesting what the 5X will look like.

YouTube channel UnderKG has managed to snag a prototype device, and has posted a few minutes of video showing the phone being twirled around in the hand. It looks much the same as the original Nexus 5 and appears similar in size to the LG G4 Beat, which has the same 5.2-inch screen that rumours suggest we'll see on the 5X.

LG is said to be making the 5X, and sure enough its logo is plastered on the back. In fact, the phone is identical to the one we've seen in previous leaks – but now we get to see it in motion. Still, as the video notes, this is only a prototype handset and things may have changed since it was produced.

Hours away

Previous rumours have suggested the Nexus 5X will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, a 12MP camera and storage options of 16GB and 32GB. It's also been reported that the phone will feature a fingerprint sensor on the back, and USB-C support.
