Nexus 5x wont boot - went dead suddenly, doesn't seem to hold charge

My nexus 5x suddenly saw a shutdown on a Friday evening. I thought it probably lost charge and plugged it to AC socket for charging. I didn't really pay attention to see if it is showing the battery charging icon. An hour later, all tries to power it on went in vain - It would show up the Google Logo and shutoff.

I thought the ROM went for a toss since I was on Android Beta Program (7.1.1 Beta). I tried flashing CM recovery, TWRP recovery. The device was recognized on fast boot but I could never boot to Android. All I could do was boot to recovery menu(not recovery).

The next day, I noticed the red LED underneath the speaker blinking when I pressed the power button - probably indicated a low battery. So I let it charge for another 5 hours and then tried to boot to TWRP recovery. This time it did show up the TWRP menu and as soon as I swiped for clear use data, the phone shut down and did not power up back again. No signs of RED LED as well - just did not power up no matter how many times I tried.

After a day again, I unscrewed the back panel screws and disconnected and reconnected the battery connector. And now, I notice the RED LED blinking again (possibly indicating low battery?) Note that for a full day, the phone was left powered off and it had a battery that was fully charged.

So what does all this hint at ? a software problem or should I be looking at buying a new phone?

Beautiful thoughts by Abdul Kalam

"Where there is righteousness in the heart
There is beauty in the character.
When there is beauty in the character,
there is harmony in the home.
When there is harmony in the home.
There is an order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation,
There is peace in the world"
