Google's new phone and tablet use LCD displays, not OLED ones

Google unveiled their new tablet (the Nexus 10, made by Samsung) and phone (the Nexus 4, made by LG) - and both use LCDs (yeah, those OLED rumors were incorrect after all). The Nexus 10 uses a 10", 2560x1600 (300 ppi) "True RGB Real Stripe PLS" display (PLS stands for Plane to Line Switching, a Samsung-developed tech which is supposed to be brighter and with better viewing angles than IPS panels).

The Nexus 4 uses a 4.7" 1280x768 IPS display (probably made by LG Display). This is the first Google Nexus phone that does not have an AMOLED display. What a shame.
