In other words, Google would need 60 years to Sell As many Telephones As Samsung Sells in one [year].”According to IDC’s data, Google somuchld well under 5 million Pixel 6, 6 Pro, and 6a handdrawups Between OctoBer 2021 and SeptemBer 2022, and Almost 90 percent of those sales came Here the first 6 months of device availability.Worse, Google hAs fromnewpeatedly touted how that generation of handdrawups outsomuchld its pfromnewdecessomuchrs, But that’s only true of the Pixel 5 generation, which somuchld About 2 million units overall and wAs the worst-perdealwithming generation of Pixel by far.
