Google shipped 3.9 million Pixel phones last year, IDC says

Latest data from market tracker IDC reveals that the company shipped 3.9 million units of Pixel smartphones in 2017.

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. 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. The numbers suggest that Google still has a long way to go before it can challenge the iPhones. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launched a year ago to no shortage of enthusiasm from Android fans, replacing handsets that had been equally lauded by vocal users. On the other hand, the IDC says Apple shipped 215.8 million iPhones in 2017, which works out to 4.15 million a week.

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. That's not a massive number, but it shows great growth for the company's lineup. Over 90 percent of phone sales are sold through carriers. Google sells Pixel phones only through Verizon and its own website, leaving out AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

He said people could easily jump from the second queue into the first, where Burt was, closer to the club doors. Doormen at the venue reportedly made desperate attempts to resuscitate the woman but she sadly died.

While that's technically double the phones Google shipped in 2016, there's a fairly important caveat to take note of. Nearly immediately, the Pixel 2 XL was ravaged by various technical issues affecting the device's screen and audio.

In comparison, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus sold 20 million devices in around four months previous year.

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. Lower-end phones lead to more sales, and Samsung matches yearly Pixel shipments every 3.5 days.
