    According to an exclusive rumor from our friends at AndroidAuthority, the next generation LG-made Google Nexus 5 will have a new name and is coming to the Google Play Store on September 29th. Supposedly, Google has been taking their time toying around with the name, but they may have settled on the Nexus 5X. This will allow them to keep the Nexus 5 name, but makes it easier for consumers to distinguish between the newer and older models.

    The rumor also indicated that the Huawei Nexus 6 device will be available on the same date, which is unsurprising. That's not all that was revealed though. Some additional details regarding the Nexus 5X were shared as well. These details basically confirm the previous rumors of a circular rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a raised camera that includes a dual LED flash on the side.

    The new intel also confirmed that the device feature a plastic back and a USB Type-C port, and it will come in either white, black, or light blue color options. Finally, there was one other detail which might be a bit disappointing. The new Nexus 5X will be a bit more expensive than its predecessor. The phone will supposedly retail at $399 for the 16GB model and $449 for the 32GB model. This is a $50 bump from the previous generation.

    Considering all of the new tech they are packing into this new Nexus 5, that seems like a fair price jump. What do you folks think?
