As we near close to the Nexus 2016 release date, eBay is being very generous by offering killer Nexus 5X deals time and again with heavy discounts in tow. However, interested buyers should note that the promotional deal is for a limited period of time. Perhaps, eBay is clearing up the old inventory to make way for the next-generation device made by HTC.

EBay has cut the price of the?32GB Google Nexus 5X to $264.99, while the original price used to be $499.99. Buyers can save $235 with this deal.

This discounted LG-made Google Nexus 5X, tied to the model number ?H790,? has been ?GSM and CDMA? factory unlocked. Both black and white variants of this device are available on discount.

At the time of writing this post, 1,257 units of the discounted device have been sold and the prominent seller ?Mobile Pros? enjoys 98 percent positive rating on eBay. Upon ordering the handset, free shipping service can be availed from eBay.

Meanwhile, Google?s Nexus 2016 smartphones, reportedly being built by HTC, have been codenamed Sailfish and Marlin. To top it off, there are rumors of Huawei making a device for Google in 2016.

Without any doubt, the upcoming Nexus handsets will run the?latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The HTC Nexus 2016 is believed to be the top-end device among the two. Under the hood, a quad-core (Qualcomm ARMv8) processor will power the device, while Adreno 530 GPU will take care of the graphics.

Based on the?collated rumors, the HTC Nexus 2016 will flaunt a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, with a QHD resolution. A 12-megapixel rear-facing camera unit and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter are believed to be part of the handset.

Nexus handsets are not particularly known for their batteries. However, this time around, Google is apparently planning to house a 3,450mAh cell in HTC Marlin.

The Nexus 2016 Sailfish, on the other hand, is expected to come powered by a 64-bit quad-core processor and backed by 4GB of RAM. While the camera configurations are believed to be same as Marlin, the reported battery configuration (2,770mAh) doesn?t seem impressive.
