The Nexus 6 was a pretty good device when it was released last year, but it was not without its flaws. One glaring issue the phone had was an AMOLED panel with sub-par white balance and color reproduction. Well, it seems the Nexus team heard your complaints and confirmed on Reddit that they have addressed the problem by outfitting this year's flagship, the Nexus 6P, with the latest gen Samsung AMOLED panel.
What's more, they also spent a considerable amount of time fine tuning the white balance and color gamut on the panel to give it the highest amount of accuracy possible. Check out the pertinent information from the Reddit conversation below.
SW: It has a Samsung WQHD AMOLED panel. We have spent a lot of time tuning the white-point and color gamut for these panels - hope you will enjoy the accuracy of the display.
Yep, confirmed: Nexus 6P has the latest generation panels from Samsung. One of things we deeply care for is the quality and accuracy of the display through which all of us connect with the stuff we care about. We created a very tight spec (white-point temperature, delta-E variance, color-space accuracy, etc) for the 6P WQHD AMOLED panel, so it was important that we use the most cutting edge panel technology available.
There you have it straight from the horse's mouth. Or rather, straight from the horse's keyboard. But actually they can't type - because hooves. Well, I guess they can't actually talk either. Forget it, there is no horse (what a stupid idiom). There is, however, a finely tuned current gen Samsung WQHD AMOLED panel in each and every Nexus 6P and that, my friends, is pretty sweet.
I wasn't able to confirm that this is the same panel that is used in the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, but if I find out I'll update the post.
