Google's Pixel phones are now the fastest growing in the U.S.
Research firm Strategy Analytics recently published a report on its website with a pretty eye-grabbing headline — Google Pixel is Fastest-Growing US Smartphone Brand. There aren't any numbers associated with the report, but it's quite impressive nonetheless.
Google didn't start releasing phones under the Pixel brand until 2016, and at that time, it was entering a market that was essentially dominated by the likes of Apple and Samsung. Even for a company of Google's size, that was still a big mountain to climb.
The original Pixel and Pixel XL weren't perfect, but they did deliver industry-leading cameras, were the first phones to ship with the Google Assistant, and offered an incredible software experience. 2017's Pixel 2 series refined the design and made the cameras even better. With the most recent Pixel 3 handsets, Google finally delivered on things like wireless charging, much better displays, and a premium all-glass construction.
Turns out people like Google's phones.
It's been quite fascinating to see the Pixel line grow and evolve over the past few years, and going into 2019 with this momentum, Google's in a position to hold onto that title of owning the fastest-growing smartphone brand in the U.S.
In addition to thePixel 4 lineup towards the end of the year, we're also expecting aPixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL to be released — providing a lot of what makes the Pixel 3 so great in a more affordable package for consumers.
