New Delhi Feb 13 (IANS) Google shipped 3.9 million Pixel and Pixel 2 devices in 2017 which is nearly double the units it sold in 2016 but a tiny fraction of the global smartphone market that numbers 1.5 billion units.



According to Francisco Jeronimo Research Director at International Data Corporation (IDC) "#GooglePixel shipments continue to grow but they still represent a tiny portion of the smartphone market."

The Pixel sales is also less than a typical week s worth of iPhone sales for Apple 9to5google.com reported.

"Presumably the jump to 3.9 million is largely thanks to the Pixel 2 but discounts on the original Pixel earlier in the year (and following the 2 s debut) could tip the numbers in the other direction " the report added.

Google recently acquired Taiwan-based HTC s smartphone design team for $1.1 billion. Google now has access to HTC s intellectual property to support the Pixel smartphone family.

This is the second time Google has acquired a smartphone manufacturer. It announced a $12.5 billion buyout of Motorola Mobility six years back and in 2014 sold it again to Lenovo.

Last month the price of the first-generation Rs 76 000 Pixel XL "quite black" colour variant was slashed by Rs 36 000 on e-commerce platform Amazon in India.
