Google shipped 3.9 mn Pixel devices in 2017

Google shipped 3.9 mn Pixel devices in 2017 Google shipped 3.9 mn Pixel devices in 2017

Jeronimo said Google doubled its Pixel sales in the a year ago.

Google released its first Pixel smartphone in October 2016. On the other hand, the IDC says Apple shipped 215.8 million iPhones in 2017, which works out to 4.15 million a week.

The number was revealed by IDC research director Francisco Jeronimo, who notes that this is comprised of both first and second generation Pixel smartphones as well as their XL variants.

For starters, Google only sells Pixel phones in six to eight countries, depending on the model, so Google is not the slightest bit competitive in the worldwide market. This would mean that Apple shipped more iPhones per week than the number of Google Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones for the whole of 2017. It's unclear, though, how many of these 3.9 million units were actually sold to end customers.

Even with those relatively paltry sales numbers, Google also dealt with a lot of Pixel stock issues in 2017. By contrast, Verizon is the only carrier selling Google phones in-store.

The Pixel phone series is a testament to that, the pinnacle of Google's ambitions to date. 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.

It also certainly does not help the Google Pixel's cause that there are certain problems associated with the Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones, including microphone defects and touchscreen problems. While the numbers are not great in the global smartphone market, it shows steady growth for the company's lineup.
