Google Nexus 5X: USB-C conversion cable not in box

Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P have been announced by the company on 29 September.


The Nexus 5X is the other phone built by LG for Google, but we won’t talk about it, because it’s not a phablet and since we’ve remembered the LG G4 flagship, we made a decision to compare it with Google’s another Nexus, which has been created by Huawei. On a related note, Huawei seems to have no problem shipping customers of the Nexus 6P an extra cable, one that connects to all the old devices you’ve been using all these years (Type-C to Type-A). This cable will not be compatible with the standard Type-A USB ports.

The new USB Type-C standard appearing on phones, computers and just about everything else offers faster charging times, faster data transfer speeds and the ability to do two jobs at once (like putting your laptop display on a big screen while charging it at the same time). As such, it will not work with most computers. You can plug it into machines with the new USB Type-C standard, including the latest MacBook and the second generation Chromebook Pixel.

Recalling the specs of the Nexus 5X, it is bundled with a 5.2-inch screen, 2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB RAM. The 5X has a 1,080 pixels display protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and a new 12 megapixel rear camera with 4K resolution video support.


The inclusion of only a USB Type-C to Type-C cable also rules out users bringing a cable with them and hoping someone has a spare wall adapter to borrow for a recharge.
