Google Sold a Record Amount of Pixel Phones Last Quarter

Alphabet released its fourth-quarter 2021 results today and there is big Pixel-related news out of it. Company CEO, Sundar Pichai, called out the “quarterly sales record” for the Pixel line-up, likely thanks to the launch of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

The following is the opening quote on the record quarter from Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai:

In Q4 we set an all-time quarterly sales record for Pixel. This came in spite of an extremely challenging supply chain environment. The response to Pixel 6 from our customers and carrier partners was incredibly positive.

However, a “record for Pixel phones” is a big deal for Google, which has struggled mightily in recent years trying to produce a winning smartphone strategy. With the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, they certainly grabbed the attention of folks around here and in the tech space, with a level of excitement for their phones reaching a space I haven’t seen in some time. And all of this apparently happened “despite supply constraints.” Then again, Google did predict they’d sell a bunch of these new phones.

Good work, Google. You can see the Q4 2021 Alphabet earnings report here.
