Google Nexus 6P uses the latest Samsung AMOLED display

Google Nexus 6P uses the latest Samsung AMOLED display
A Reddit AMA from today has already brought us some cool news on the new Nexus devices, including why they don't have wireless charging and what the X and P in the names mean. Now, Google has also given some interesting info on the Nexus 6P display, which is apparently the latest Samsung AMOLED panel.

According to Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google not only used the latest generation WQHD AMOLED panels from Samsung for the Nexus 6P, but the team spent quite a bit of time tweaking things to make sure the displays are as accurate as possible. Lockheimer said:


As we also learned as part of the AMA, the P in Nexus 6P stands for "premium" and this definitely backs up that meaning. Now, we just have to count down the days until the 6P starts shipping to customers.

Any reason I shouldn't preorder one? Currently using an LG G3

Honestly nope this phone looks amazing. I'd pick one up but I've bought too many phones this year.

Well I have 2 phones on me at all times. But I bought a blackberry classic which I got a good deal on and it was pretty cool but the lack of apps didn't help. Just got a moto x pure to replace my note 4 and upgraded my iPhone. I also have a moto g 2015 for when I leave the country and dont really care if I lose it or it breaks. So no one isn't enough lol

LG V10 and Nexus 6p already made it harder which device to purchase. Thanks God both phone made me forget chinese phones. Now Lumia 950xl is left, after that I will need to cast a vote to choose which one?

Surely a Moto X pure is a downgrade from the Note 4?

Yes for the most part. I still have the Note 4 and its a great phone. What I meant to say is an alternative. I was getting tired of touchwiz.

Google abandoned, not huawei. It is Google Nexus, so material of choice is selected by the google. Huawei just assembled it.

LOL.....that Amoled screen is probably the only reason I might get this phone. Hopefully it is a much newer generation of Amoled screen unlike Nexus 6.

Samsung is generally willing to lend out year-old screen tech. So this could be identical to the Note 4 panel, which is still the best in the industry. It's almost enough to make me want the 6P.

AMOLED's great. Nice and vibrant, and super accurate colours. Strangely tho MKBHD mentioned w/o the SRGB mode on, the display is over saturated as f. Just a little heads up.

Super Amoled is the best display in the market

it is not, it degrades over time and is prone to burn in. my s6 just burned in. that is just unacceptable

Kid stop trolling Amoled screens. Unless you can give us a proof of your phone its better to shut up. There has not been any significant users reporting the issue with S6. So stop making an issue out of a non-issue just because you don't like Amoled.

every AMOLED screens do suffer from burn in problem no matter which generations they are. And don't tell me that S6 screen won't get it unless you're a fanboy. Here is a proof from the Nexus 6 serious burn in: youtube.com/watch?v=zKAWr9PjWjw

Read #45. Nexus 6 uses a very old generation of Amoled display hence the burn in. Erica in one the video admitted S6 not having burn-in issues. PS. I asked proof of his S6 not Nexus 6 !

Honestly man, I work at an AT&T store and have seen all the AMOLED screens from Note 4, to Moto X 2014, even to the new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge all have burn in. I can try and get some pictures today if you really need proof. That's honestly the main thing deterring me from AMOLED screens, besides the over saturation which really bugs my eyes for some reason haha. On top of that the Note 4 actually looks like the screen has gotten worse. And I honestly thought it was one of the best in the market when I activated one when they first came out. Now tho it honestly looks pretty bad.. Anyway, not tryna start an argument, just saying that it does in fact exist

I believe you, I know it exists, I have image burn on my Moto X 2013, but I only started to actually notice it over the summer. It's only noticeable where the navigation buttons are at the bottom of the display and it's only noticeable when in immersive mode. I'm not saying that it's not an issue, but its impact is only slight and only over a great deal of time. I would imagine that it's more of an issue for your outlet simply because you have all the phones on display all day every day, so yeah, I would imagine that you see this kind of thing all the time.

it is not, it improves over time and not prone to cold out. many ppl's s6 doesnt cold out. that is totally acceptable.

Anandtech also saw this. Read the following: "When I first used the Nexus 6P I was very upset to see that it was clearly oversaturated like the Nexus 6, but there's more to the story this time around. In the Nexus 6P's developer settings there is a switch to enable an sRGB mode, and when this switch is turned on the Nexus 6P's display appears to have similar color rendition to the Nexus 5X.."

I was actually trying to dig some info about 6P's Amoled before placing my pre-order (I am pretty anal when it comes to display). Thanks for that. Much appreciated ! The only thing on my worrying list is if the SD810 V2 has the same issues as its predecessor.

i have an lg g3 and it over heats like a beeotch killing my battery life. i finally rooted it with cyanogen mod's nighties.. its awesome now.. except for the overheating and battery life issue. Microwave your lg g3 and get the 6p
