Since Pixel lineup started, the Google devices were on the expensive side until the Pixel 3a and 3a XL released last year. Pixel 3a/3a XL line up has made a lot of users attracted to the Pixel brand in the USA and India.

Francisco Jeronimo has revealed in a tweet that Google has managed to sell more devices in the USA, Western Europe region and Japan market. However, he did not reveal the numbers which google managed to sell on these markets. The data was sourced from IDC’s quarterly mobile phone tracker which was updated last month.

In a response to a follower, Mr. Jeronimo have said that Pixel 3a and 4 have sold less devices than Pixel 3 in first 2 quarters of 2019 in sales and Google have expanded the sales in 3 more markets which brought more sales into its account. Even though Google has managed to sell 7.2 million devices, it is still not in the top 10 smartphone manufacturers.

The Google Pixel 4a, which is the successor to Pixel 3a and 3a XL expected to launch in July might bring more numbers for google, as it is rumoured to carry a affordable price tag. According to the rumours, Pixel 4a line up will carry most of its predecessor’s highlighting features like a mid range Snapdragon 7-series chipset, 6GB RAM and expected to be available in 128GB storage variant. We will see how Google is going to attract the users as the Apple iPhone SE 2020 is also competing with them this year.
