Google Shipped 3.9 Million Pixel Units Last Year

Google Shipped 3.9 Million Pixel Units Last Year

Add to the equation the many delays, production woes and poor general distribution of the OG Pixel duo, and you probably won't be shocked to hear the smartphone family's shipments merely amounted to 3.9 million units in 2017.

Disclosed to investors, Google advised Pixel phone shipments doubled in 2017 - a claim substantiated by IDC. While top devices from Apple and Samsung are widely available via all major wireless providers, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets can only be had through Google's online store or from Verizon (in the US). It's the phone you want if you're a diehard Android fan, and you're willing to go out of their way to seek it out.

The Pixel is still very much a niche nerd phone.
Last year, ahead of the Pixel 2 launch, Essential Products had of the Essential Phone - from $699 (roughly Rs. 45,460) to $499 (roughly Rs. 32,457) in order to compete with the big guns.

Kim's presence at the Olympics has presented people in South Korea and beyond with something new to know about North Korea . Hoping to discern what she's thinking, analysts pored over video of her eyes, and remarked on the tilt of her chin.

The analyst, IDC Research Director Francisco Jeronimo, said the figure includes both generations of the phone, the Pixel 1 and 2. In 2016, Google brought in former Motorola executive Rick Osterloh to lead its hardware division, which includes its Google Home smart speakers, Chromecast streaming devices and Google Wi-Fi routers. It's unclear, though, how many of these 3.9 million units were actually sold to end customers. Google now has access to HTC's intellectual property to support the Pixel smartphone family.

Most of this is on Google, though. A great camera is a good start and so, too, is selling phones at under $1,000, but why should anyone defect to #TeamPixel if they're already happily satisfied by iPhone or Samsung? In the case of mobile, the revenge of the nerds is going to have to wait.
