Google and LG unveiled the new Nexus 5X smartphone alongside its 6P cousin at the end of September, and while the device is already available in markets like the US and India, it was still to be released in Europe. That has changed now, even as the smaller of the two new pure Android handsets has finally been revealed to be in stock.
Those from the said region can start placing their pre-orders for the Nexus 5X, and expect deliveries to commence on November 9. Europeans will need to shell out €479 for the 16GB model of the phone and €529 for the 32GB variant. Those are pretty high values if compared against what the new Nexus device is being sold at in other nations.
Moreover, US buyers have also been getting goodies like $50 Play Store credit and a 90-day Google Play Music subscription, which are not being granted to those from Europe. However, some nations from the region are being blessed with a free Chromecast accessory though.
As revealed by Android Police, countries like Spain, Italy, Germany and France have been confirmed to be getting the streaming device free with their Nexus 5X handsets. There’s no word right now on when the 6P model will be made available for purchase in Europe.
