On the front is a 5.2-inch, 1080 x 1920 resolution screen with a pixel density of 423.64. It’s an LCD panel, suggesting that it may not be quite as vibrant as the AMOLED QHD panel on the Nexus 6P. Saying that, it should be plenty sharp enough with accurate colors and crisp whites. Inside is the same hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor found in the Moto X Style/Play and the LG G4, clocked at 2GHz and coupled with 2GB RAM.
