Following the majority of Canadian carriers, Virgin Mobile has launched the LG-made Nexus 5X today. The cost is similar to its competitors at $0 on the platinum plan, $99 with gold, or $579 on no-term.

This follow-up to 2013’s Nexus 5, the LTE-enabled LG Nexus 5X, features a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB of RAM, 12.3 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front-facing camera, Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner, and a 2,700mAh battery.

    Good and competitive no-term price, only $200 more than on Google Store.

      Makes sense to me as they further want to prevent BYOD

    I still don’t understand why Google didn’t release its 5x to every lower end carriers (Koodo, Fido, Virgin and other small local carriers) and the 6p to the big 3. They would have became instead classic like the og Nexus 5.

      It’s the carrier’s choice whether or not they want to carry a device, in the end. It’s not Google’s choice.

    Why would someone spend 200$ more? Why ? Is there any explanation?

    I don’t see the Nexus 5X listed on Virgin Mobile’s website.

    Hey there! This phone is unfortunately, definitely not at Virgin yet!
