Screen Dimensions

Google Pixel have 5.0 inch screen which is ~ 69% of actual device size. Physical dimensions for Google Pixel device is 5.66 x 2.74 x 0.33 INCH or ( 143.8 x 69.5 x 8.5 MM).

Displaying of Units are in this order "Height x Width x Thickness"

Screen Pixel Density and CSS Pixel Ratio

"Pixel" is smallest unit/element of any display.

The total number of pixels that fit into an inch is referred to as "Screen Density" or "Pixel Density" and it measured as "Pixels Per Inch".
Pixel Desnsity have limits to display Pixels Per Inch depends on different screen sizes. When number of pixels per inch increases than it's screen-size limit, the Display resolution will increase but actual device width/height in pixels remain same. Actual device pixels are known as Device Independent Pixels or CSS Pixel Ratio.

Google Pixel have ~ 441 pixel density and actual pixel density is about ~ 170 so it have 2.6 xxhdpi display pixel density.

Screen Resolution and Viewport

The sum of pixels which are displaying on a device is called as "Screen Resolution". and sum of actual pixels of any device is reffered to as "Viewport".

Google Pixel have 5.0" physical screen size and its resolution is about 1080 x 1920 Pixels with approximately 441 PPI pixel density. Google Pixel has viewport size 411 x 731 Pixels and its pixel ratio is about 2.6.

    /* Retina styles here */
}
                                

Retina is actually based upon device pixel ratio. Devices mostly have 2x or 3x display so you can use general retina media queries to display high resolution content on all kind of devices. Retina 2x and Retina 3x media queries given below:
