Nexus 5X Falsely Advertised by Google to Feature AMOLED Panel
It seems like even though Google is one of the biggest tech companies in the world, it still makes mistakes from time to time. As many of you might know, Google first ventured in the smartphone industry with the Nexus brand. As time passed on, Google decided to leave the Nexus brand behind and to move the new Pixel lineup.
However, this doesn’t mean that Nexus smartphones are not still selling since they are still listed on Google’s android.com website. The reason we are talking about Nexus smartphones is because Google made a mistake while listing the highly popular Nexus 5X on its official website. The Android parent is claiming that one of Nexus 5X’s features is an AMOLED display.
Nexus 5X False Advertisement
While looking for Nexus 5X on Google’s android.com website, interested customers will find out that one of the smartphone’s top features is its 5.2-inch AMOLED panel. Unfortunately, this is not true since Nexus 5X sports an IPS LCD panel instead which is by no means a bad display, but it’s just not AMOLED technology.
Even though this might be seen as false advertisement that’s intended to grab customer’s attention, it’s probably just a simple mistake. Therefore, Google needs to edit Nexus 5X’s entry before anyone buys it and then find out that it doesn’t ship with AMOLED technology.
The smartphone was first launched back in 2015 and it’s been going strong ever since. Nexus 5X might not ship with an AMOLED display, but it’s 5.2-inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is more than enough since it offers a full HD 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. Moreover, the main reason behind Nexus 5X’s longevity is its hexa-core Snapdragon 808 CPU which clocks at 1.8GHz. The processor is quite impressive, especially since its paired with an Adreno 418 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
