Google Pixel yearly sales double to 3.9 million in 2017

Google Pixel yearly sales double to 3.9 million in 2017”

Google debuted the Pixel, the search giant's first branded phone, in October 2016, and unveiled the second generation of the device exactly one year later.

You can't argue with the fact that Google's Pixel 2 phones have the world's best smartphone camera, even better than the iPhone X.

IDC Research Director Francisco Jeronimo tweeted that Google shipped 3.9 million units of the Pixel and Pixel 2 combined in 2017.

However, IDC's recent numbers reveal Google still has some way to go, before it reaches market leader status.

Look, I get it, the Pixel's still the new guy on the block.

To really drive home how puny Pixel sales were: It only took Apple 6.5 days and Samsung 4.4 days to sell the same number of phones.

Google occasionally dabbles with pop-up stores for the holidays, and it has some dedicated displays inside electronics stores, but it's missing a standalone retail presence.

The Pixel range debuted in 2016 and got a refresh late previous year, which brought us the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, so it's a relatively new brand when compared to iPhone and Galaxy S. Its availability is also limited to a handful of markets. Over 90 percent of phone sales are sold through carriers.

Google Pixel smartphones are nice, but that would not matter much if customers are not able to purchase them.

On one hand, selling basically every Pixel phone you make is a good thing, but Google probably would have sold a lot more if it had met the demand.

The Google Pixel phones have been very well received since they first appeared in 2016. There is a partnership this year with Verizon and more visible marketing, but it seems this hasn't translated into massive sales.

While he didn't provide any concrete figures, Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently confirmed during the company's quarterly earnings call that Google has seen its device shipments more than double year-over-year.
