If you needed more confirmation that we’re going to be seeing a new LG Nexus at next week’s Google event, you’re in luck. The LG Nexus 5X, or what would strongly appear to be, has now passed through the FCC. It’s probably not a coincidence this happened late on a Friday when a smaller amount of eyes would be around to check out the documents and the resulting media coverage.

Nexus 5X fcc filing

You can blame our leak culture if you already know all about the Nexus 5X, but the new FCC documents seem to confirm a few of the details we already knew. In the filing, we see that the LG H790 and H791, the two versions of the new Nexus, are CDMA/GSM/LTE phones that sport Bluetooth 4.2, WiFI a/b/g/n/ac dual band, and NFC. The devices have 5.2″ screens with bodies measuring 146.9 x 72.5mm.

The H791, for some reason, is listed with a 4.4″ screen with a 146.1 x 72.2mm body. Rather than this being a second smaller Nexus device from LG, it’s more likely that this is just an error. Much like the 2013 LG Nexus 5 that came in two models (D820 and D821), one for the US and one global model, we expect this to be the same case.

We’re also getting a look at the impressive list of bands that the Nexus 5X will support.

2G: 850/1900MHz

3G: Band 2/4/5

LTE (H790): FD-LTE: Band 2(1900MHz)/4(1700MHz)/5(850MHz)/7(2600MHz)/12(700MHz)/13 (700MHz)/17 (700MHz)/25 (1900MHz)/26 (850MHz), TD-LTE: Band 41(2500MHz)

LTE (H791): TD-LTE: Band 2(1900MHz)/4(1700MHz)/5(850MHz)/7(2600MHz)/17 (700MHz)/26 (850MHz), FDD-LTE: Band 41(2500MHz)

We’re looking forward to the big Android event on September 29th where Google will take the wraps off of two new Nexus phones and hopefully have some surprises up their sleeves. We’ll be in attendance and will bring you the latest details as they become available.

  1. I hope there will be a third version, because those two versions are almost useless in Europe where LTE Band 3 and 20 are heavily used.
