Description

The Pixel C packs a quad-core Nvidia Tegra X1 CPU, with a Maxwell GPU, and 3 GB of RAM, and Google was especially proud of the device's prowess. Its screen has a 10.2-inch diagonal and a bit of a weird resolution – 2560 x 1800, which results in a pixel density of 308 PPI – pretty crisp! Additionally, the display is said to be able to achieve a 500 nits brightness level, which sounds very well usable even under direct sunlight.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 308 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
