A NEW PIXEL Phone is coming from Google for 2017
Seems as if Google is ready to release another (NOT CHEAP) Pixel
phone for 2017
The Pixel represents Google's first proper foray into the
smartphone market, allowing the search giant to directly compete with
Apple and cement Android's reputation as a premium platform. While
sales have been steady, it's been particularly hard to get a hold of
one due to component shortages. That hasn't dampened the company's
plans to continue investing in its own smartphones, though: according
to Rick Osterloh, VP of Hardware at Google, there will be a successor
to the Pixel this year and will continue to carry a high price tag.
"There is an annual rhythm in the industry. So, you can count
on us to follow it," Osterloh told Android Pit in a briefing at
Mobile World Congress. "You can count on a successor this year,
even if you don't hear a date from me now." In response to
questions regarding a low cost Pixel, the Google executive simply told
reporters: "the Pixel stays premium."
Although Google is keeping information to a premium, its typical
development cycle suggests a Pixel 2 will go on sale in the fourth
quarter. The current Pixel launched in October 2016 and Google has
held launch events at around the same time for Nexus phones in the
Earlier this week, Osterloh indicated that while the Pixel brand
remained reserved for its handsets, it may not make any more of
high-end Pixel Chromebooks. Google's hardware chief quickly moved to
reassure consumers that "Google's own Chromebooks aren't 'dead''
but the statement still leaves things in the air. Google may still
continue to make its own Chromebooks, but they might be released under
a new name.
