Francisco Jeronimo, Vice President of Research at IDC, stated that Google Pixel smartphones have been delivered a total of 37.9 million units since its first release in 2016. He emphasized that the growth of Pixel has been remarkable, reaching a two-digit increase compared to the initial year.
Although the initial shipment volumes of Google Pixel may not be as high as other smartphone brands like Samsung and Apple, which delivered 261 million and 226 million units respectively last year, it reflects Google’s ability to sustain growth while competitors may be stabilizing or declining.
One important factor contributing to the lower sales of Google Pixel is its limited availability in certain countries. Currently, the company is focusing on specific markets such as the United States and Japan. This competition in the hardware industry is a long-term game that will continue to evolve.
TLDR: Google Pixel has delivered a total of 37.9 million smartphones since its first release in 2016. Despite lower sales compared to competitors, such as Samsung and Apple, Google has shown sustainable growth. Limited availability in certain markets contributes to the lower sales volume.
