The CEO of Google Sundar Pichai (Sundar Pichai) said that after running a series of Pixel 3a total sales of the device Pixel in the second quarter increased more than 2 times. It is noteworthy that Google has never revealed the specific values concerning the level of sales of own smartphones, so it remains a mystery how many units of Pixel devices were sold in the reporting period. Moreover, the company does not share the segment “other income” in different categories. Therefore it is impossible to say that a significant jump in earnings growth in the segment associated with the sales of Pixel. More likely, however, Google has made a significant contribution to this.
