The Google Nexus 5X will soon be a year old, meaning it gets a refreshed version in the shape of Google Nexus 2016 Sailfish. This should be happening in a few weeks’ time and as usual, when such dates are approaching, major retailers start clearing their shelves in readiness for the upcoming handsets.
In a bid to make room for the new Google Nexus 2016 handsets, Groupon has a cool offer for those looking to buy a new Google Nexus 5X 32GB variant. As at the time of this writing, you can buy a brand new Nexus 5X for a price of just $279.99, however, there is a catch.
According to the platform, you must be a first-time user or rather, the purchase of the 32GB variant of Nexus 5X should be your first. This means the deal should be applicable to all those who already have Groupon accounts but have never made any purchase. Furthermore, you must also remember to apply the code FIRST at checkout in order to take advantage of the deal. Hurry before this deal expires in just about 4 days or so.
If the 32GB variant is too much for you or rather, if the $279.99 price tag is a little too hefty for you, there is still some good news coming from eBay. Apparently, the 16GB Google Nexus 5X variant is now selling at a massive discount of $150 when compared to the current Google Store pricing of $349. Just like any other major retailer, eBay is looking to clear its shelves in readiness for the new handsets and it is doing it in style.
Unlike on Groupon where it seems the black color variant is the only version on offer, the eBay deal includes all three color variants of the Nexus 5X. However, it is important to note that the variant being sold is international, which carries model number H791. With this in mind, it means you won’t be able to make use of some LTE bands that include 12, 13 and 25. Although the phone should work with all GSM carriers in the U.S., CDMA carriers have no room.
