Google is betting everything on smartphones, and the market seems to be rewarding it. While we wait for the launch of the flagship killer Google Pixel 7a, in fact, the sales data confirms that Pixel 7, 7 Pro and 6a are the “bestsellers” of the Mountain View giant, with sales well above expectations.
The news was reported by Google itself, which through the voice of CEO Sundar Pichai declared that Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are “the generation of smartphones with the best sales” among those produced by Big G, surpassing all the other phones of the company, both those of the Pixel line and those in co-branding of the Nexus line. In short, a huge commercial success.
Also Google Pixel 6a seems to be selling very well, probably by virtue of a truly aggressive quality/price ratio combined with a satisfactory technical data sheet and a camera far above expectations. An excellent result, especially after the bad sales of Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, largely caused by the bugs that have plagued the two smartphones since their launch.
Even for Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, however, the The main selling point was the photographic sector, which not only boasts real top-of-the-range cameras, but also an AI capable of significantly improving the quality of the images taken by the two smartphones. It also seems that users have particularly appreciated the UI and experience guaranteed by the system stock used by Google, free of bloatware.
Last year, Google was the fifth largest smartphone maker in the USA, with 2% of the market in April 2022 (at the end of the 2021/2022 fiscal year). Given the excellent results this year, it is not at all unlikely that Big G will gain a few percentage points or even some market position. In any case, the next major event for Mountain View smartphones will be the launch of the Google Pixel 7a, which it should be set for Google I/O 2023in the month of May.
