Google shipped 3.9 million Pixels during 2017 according to report

The Google Pixel phones have been very well received since they first appeared in 2016.

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

Pixel smartphone sales are certainly heading in the right direction, validating the company's recent push into making Google hardware.

According to IDC, Google shipped 3.9 million Pixel smartphones past year, which is not a whole lot when you consider just how many tens of million of units the big players ship in a single quarter. That number is pretty much a drop in the ocean when you think that the smartphone market is worth around 1.5 billion smartphones.

Trump himself first learned of the allegations this week, two sources familiar with the matter said. Another spoke of emotional abuse and of Porter grabbing her and pulling her from the shower.


Even with those relatively paltry sales numbers, Google also dealt with a lot of Pixel stock issues in 2017. When you delve a little deeper, though, it's perhaps not so clear-cut.

The analyst, IDC Research Director Francisco Jeronimo, said the figure includes both generations of the phone, the Pixel 1 and 2. The devices come with powerful specifications and a bloatware-free experience with Google's mobile operating system that make them arguably the best Android smartphones in the market.

Disclosed to investors, Google advised Pixel phone shipments doubled in 2017 - a claim substantiated by IDC.

He's been an Android fan ever since owning an HTC Hero, with the Dell Streak being his first phablet. Don't expect a new Pixel handset before the fall, though. Based on its most recent sales figures, Apple was selling nearly 850,000 iPhones each day in the first quarter of 2018. 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). That means Apple needed 4.6 days to sell 3.9 million iPhones - mind you, these aren't iPhone X units, as Apple did not divulge the actual split for the period.
