Next-gen LG Nexus 5
LG-manufactured Nexus 5X rumoured to offer battery life lasting an entire day Reuters

Ahead of the expected launch of Google's next-gen Nexus smartphone, tentatively called Nexus 5X, at an event in San Francisco on 29 September, key information regarding the handset's tech specs has surfaced. The smartphone is rumoured to offer battery backup lasting an entire day, benefiting those who prefer to use smartphones for office work.

The information is believed to be based on the official product pages of the Nexus 5X, according to Droid Life. However, the battery life claim is still in the realm of conjecture and would require real-world tests. The handset is expected to run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) once officially released. In line with earlier reports, other rumoured technical specs include a 5.2in display within Gorilla Glass 3 protection, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC and fingerprint sensors.

Nexus 5X is also rumoured to incorporate a 2GB RAM under-the-hood. According to an Android Police report, Nexus 5X will be available in both 16GB and 32GB internal storage variants. Provision for expansion of internal storage via external microSD card is not known at this point in time.

Alongside the LG-manufactured Nexus 5X, a larger Nexus handset supplied by Huawei could also be launched at the Google event. As per rumours, the device would feature a comparatively large 5.7in display, Android 6.0 and 128GB internal storage straight out-of-the-box.
