The rumor mill is starting to pick up some steam leading up to the rumored announcement of the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6. We’ve seen some renders, and apparently some legitimate pictures of the device before, but today’s are a little different.
Instead of seeing renders or images that claim to be pictures, today’s “leak” is of the device in real life. Meaning that the pictures from the folks over at UnderKG, have images of someone holding the alleged Nexus 5X.
What’s peculiar about the first of these images is that it suggest that the Nexus 5X may come in a mint color. Mint is not a color that you would normally expect to see from a phone, and hasn’t been used much at all. In fact, Sony released the Xperia C3 in a mint variant, but later pulled the device from production.
Since all of this is just speculation leading up to the reported Google event on September 29th, it’s worth noting that the “mint” may actually just be a piece of protective plastic. If that’s the case, then this would mean the back of device seen pictured above, would more than likely be white, which is a bit more normal.
The front of the device shows off only one speaker grill, however, the thumb holding the device could be covering something else up. Whether that’s another speaker, or nothing at all, we’ll leave that up to your imagination.
Finally, one more thing that we would like to point out, is that whatever device this is, appears to be rather small. This may just be a distortion effect from the angle that the camera was taking the picture, or it could be the real deal and will have a smaller than expected LG Nexus 5X.
Let us know whether you think this is the real deal, or just another fake that has everyone getting their hopes up.
