LG-made Nexus 5X is now sold at a discounted rate along with the company’s wireless service Project Fi. The device is now sold at $199 (AU$ 263.49), which makes us only think that Google is already planning for the Nexus 2016 release date.
Android Headlines reported that Nexus 5X had received a price cut up to $150 (AU$ 198.61), leaving the tag at only $299 (AU$ 395.90), as of Apr. 8. Currently, eBay is offering the device at the discounted rate; however, it is limited on supplies. The similar deal is also offered for the 5X international model, which is for the U.S., and will only work on T-Mobile and AT&T.
Meanwhile, Phone Dog reports, Google is offering the best package for the 5X model with limited run Project Fi promo and bundles the wireless service extended. Originally, Google was planning to end the deal by April 7 but the company thought it would be wiser to give Android fans more time to buy the LG-flavored Nexus which comes with a stable connection.
The LG-made Nexus 5X with Project Fi will expire on May 8, and interested buyers can purchase the device for $199 (AU$ 263.49). As the device has become even more affordable, Android fans can get their hands on their favourite handset that boasts of near-flagship specs and an operating system which gets updated even before other branded smartphones receives it.
With Project Fi, Google assures uninterrupted wireless service for the select U.S. locations.
Similarly, predecessors of Nexus 5X, the Huawei Nexus 6P, and HTC Nexus saw significant price cuts in the past few weeks. This price cut had created speculations about the release date of the Nexus 2016.
