Bug Causing Washed Out Colors On Nexus 5X, 6P & Player

December 4, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are amongst the hottest devices in the tech world at the moment. These two phones were announced back in September, and both of them ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Now, as most devices, these two phones have its pluses and minuses, even though both of them were well received by both the consumers and tech sites, especially the Nexus 6P which is regarded as one of the best Android-powered smartphones currently available out in the market.

That being said, bugs are a part of every smartphone, unfortunately, and it seems like Google’s Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are no exceptions. Users started reporting these bugs back on October 5th, and it seems like it’s affecting display functionality on both devices. Users are reporting that the colors look washed out on both of these devices, and the Nexus Player as well. As a side note, the Nexus Player has been around for quite some time, it has been announced back in 2014, and it looks like it is affected by this bug as well. Anyhow, Google has acknowledged the bug on both Nexus handsets, and are working on fixing it, but there’s still no word on when they might fix the one on the Nexus Player.

The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are both running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and Google’s new OS version is probably to blame here well, the new code which arrived with the OS version. We do hope that Google will remedy this problem soon, not only on Nexus handsets, but the Nexus Player as well. The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P actually sport quite capable cameras, they’re packing 12.3-megapixel snapper with 1.55um pixel size, and the results are quite great actually. The two devices are quite different in terms of other specs though, the Nexus 5X features a 5.2-inch 1080p display, while the Nexus 6P comes with a 5.7-inch QHD panel. The smaller Nexus is powered by the Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core SoC, while its bigger brothers packs in a Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor. That’s pretty much it, stay tuned, we’ll let you know if we hear more about the aforementioned bug.
