Google's Nexus phones haven't had the best cross-carrier support in the US (ahem, Verizon), but that might change when the Nexus 5X and 6P roll into town. The Nexus 5X has just swung by the FCC for approval, and one filing is for a model that appears to support all four major US carriers in at least some capacity -- there are concerns that it might not handle T-Mobile's existing 3G, but this does include Verizon support. There's also a second variant of the LG-made device that removes some frequency bands and appears destined for other countries. There's not much to see beyond this, although the FCC's measurements back rumors that the 5X will have a 5.2-inch screen. Will this Nexus actually work with every major US network when it launches? It's hard to say for sure, but you'll likely get the full scoop at Google's event in a few days.
