It looks like the medium-sized pixel 3a is the hit that Google had hoped for.
Alphabet reported some pretty good earnings today, but the company's report is rather pretty generic, as no details are given for the various divisions within Google and the other segments. That does not mean Google does not have good news. At today's conference, Google boss Sundar Pichai shared some new statistics for the company's phone line.
"With the launch of Pixel 3a in May, Pixel's total second-quarter sales more than doubled year-on-year," Pichai announced. Part of this growth is due to the fact that Google has significantly expanded its distribution network beyond its own business and Verizon, to include T Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, Spectrum Mobile and others. He also emphasized that Pixel 3a received Google's highest net promoter score so far.
Of course, we do not know what's the basis for Pichai's claim here, since Google never shared any actual sales, but it's safe. This contributes to the pixel 3a being relatively cheap and doing well with flagship phones without larger ones Compare disadvantages. At the beginning, the ratings were also generally very positive, which was certainly helpful too. Unlike earlier pixel launches, there were no major hardware issues with the first line of Pixel 3a phones, which regularly plagued Google's past efforts.
