Google doesn't officially disclose the number of units sold and in the case of the Pixel smartphones that's particularly irksome.
See Google's Play Store gives a range number for app installs and in the case of the Pixel Launcher app that number just passed from the threshold from the 500,000 - 1,000,000 to 1,000,000-5,000,000 meaning that Google has sold around 1 million Pixel smartphones since their launch some 8 months ago.
The Pixel Launcher is exclusive to the Pixel phones (it excludes even the Pixel C tablet) so the number should perfectly match the number of activated units out htere.
So there you go - Google has likely sold around 1 million of its first in-house smartphone duo. Not bad for a first attempt although not nearly enough to challenge the big boys.
Maybe interest will pick up once the Pixel 2 rolls around.
pixels are nice, also very expensive and very region limited, so one million is really good. i still think google should go into its ara project. people expect something challenging from google. not just same better thing.
For example if we download the app uninstall and again re-install then ? what will happen will the counter shows as 2 or 1 ??
not that good achievement, considering Pixel Launcher installed by most of non-Pixel users
