Google Nexus 5X is now on sale in the UK

In the market for a budget-friendly Android flagship? Google’s got you covered.

The Nexus 5X is now available for purchase in the UK, retailing at the online Google Store.

The device starts a £339 for the 16GB model, and ships in three different colours – black, white, and mint. You can upgrade the storage to 32GB for an extra £40.

If you’re looking to buy the Nexus 5X elsewhere, you can pick it up at Carphone Warehouse, Clove, Unlocked Mobiles,, John Lewis, and EE.

Google’s new smartphone was announced late last month, alongside its larger sibling, the Nexus 6P.

The Nexus 5X is built by South Korean technology giant LG, and features Qualcomm’s relatively new Snapdragon 808 processor.

It’s also got a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and Google’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system on board.

As is always the case with Google’s Nexus line-up, the Nexus 5X is one of the first devices on the planet to ship with the new OS.

Other features include a 13-megapixel camera and, as a first for the Nexus series, a fingerprint scanner.

It’s worth noting that while the Nexus 5X is available to buy in the UK, the Nexus 6P is still listed as a pre-order.

Nexus 5X units will ship from the warehouse on October 22.
