  • Google shipped 3.9 million Pixel phones last year, IDC says

This number includes the Pixel smartphones and the Pixel 2 released near the end of 2017.

The company reportedly only shipped 3.9 million Pixel phones in 2017, according to IDC research director Francisco Jeronimo.

Google shipped 3.9 million Pixel phones last year, IDC says

Even HMD Global, which began selling Nokia-branded smartphones a year ago, sold more phones than Google. If you recall, the IDC staffer recently revealed that Andy Rubin's start-up, Essential, shipped fewer than 90,000 phones in its first six months after launch. 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). For Google, that's not too shabby for a newcomer - it's twice the number of Pixels from the year before - but overall it's still pretty weak, and a sign that there's a long road ahead before the company even comes close to challenging Apple and Samsung.

In comparison, according to IDC, Apple shipped a total of 215.8 million iPhones in 2017, equivalent to about 4.15 million units a week.

Martin Schulz resigns as leader of Germany's Social Democrats
In a cartoon published on Tuesday, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily showed Nahles with a whip riding an SPD snail. The SPD was at a record low of 16.5 percent, barely ahead of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD).

Past year saw Google unveil the Pixel 2 and 2 XL handsets to take over from the original Pixel phones that launched back in 2016.

Though there are undoubtedly many reasons why Pixel sales were so disappointing, the most problematic is its lack of retail presence. In the U.S., 90% of smartphones are sold via wireless carriers. Nearly immediately, the Pixel 2 XL was ravaged by various technical issues affecting the device's screen and audio.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 launched
Both the phones come with a tall 18:9 display while the Redmi Note Pro includes a dual-camera setup on the back as well. The new model features a single cable connection dubbed Mi Port which can connect Mi TV Bar to the display .

Why Can't Google Pixel Catch Up To The iPhone? Its smartphones compete against the best the market has to offer, featuring cutting-edge hardware, vanilla Android and, unlike many of its droid-toting siblings, three years of support. Do you think 3.9 million shipments is a good milestone for Google's second year as a hardware company, or were you expecting more? HMD is now the world's sixth largest smartphone vendor.
