When the Google Pixel phones were announced, it’s safe to say that many weren’t exactly huge fans of its design. However it seems that despite that, the fact that it would come with the latest build of Android, feature high-end specs, and is more or less promised timely updates saw many customers flocking to the device.
So much so that the demand for the new Google Pixel phones exceeded that of the company’s own expectations. This is why it is not surprising to learn that according to the analysts at Morgan Stanley, they have predicted that Google is on track to sell as many as 3 million phones by the end of the year, and that their phones will be able to capture at least 10% of the premium smartphone market share in India.
They have also estimated that this means that Google can expect to make as much as $2 billion in revenue from these sales. The financial company has also stated that they believe Google will be capable of selling an additional 5-6 million Pixel and PIxel XL phones in 2017 and will pull in at least $3.8 billion in revenue in the process.
Of course whether or not this will happen remains to be seen, especially when you consider that 2017 is the year we can look forward to highly-anticipated handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8, both of which are rumored to feature some pretty interesting features.
