Google finally unveiled the Nexus 5X, the worthy successor of the 2013 Nexus 5, a device that received plenty of attention from Android fans interested a pure version of Android. Considering that LG made the previous 5-inch Nexus phone, rumors earlier this year suggesting the same South Korean company would make the Nexus 5X weren’t surprising.

The Nexus 5X was hardly a well-kept secret before the show, with numerous reports offering many details about the handset, including images and official documentation detailing the phone’s specs and features. And Google pretty much confirmed all of the leaks during the event.
