According to a report published by analytics firm Appboy, the #Google #Pixel and the #PixelXL are already off to a better start compared to their predecessor, the #Huawei #Nexus6P. It is said that the device saw better than usual growth in its first week of sale, while market share figures were better as well.
The Pixel apparently saw a market share of 0.016% and the Pixel XL topped at 0.020%. These figures are not much compared to some popular devices, but it’s a start. To put things in perspective, the Nexus 6P from last year only reached this point by the second week, so one can say that Google’s marketing and the rebranding of the Nexus line is working.
However, it will be interesting to see if the growth and the market share will be consistent going forward. With the holiday season quickly approaching, Google’s real test is still ahead. Do you think this is just the early buzz for the Pixel phones?
