Nexus 6P Thrives in Foreign Countries Despite Pixel Flop
Even though everyone might believe that Nexus 6P’s fate might not be so bright, Google is proving the otherwise. Ever since Google came out with its Pixel lineup, people started believing that Google is going to depart from the Nexus brand. Well this might be true for older smartphones such as Nexus 6 and 9 but Nexus 6P is an entirely different story. The Android parent is not able to reproduce the same amount of sales with the Pixel lineup in foreign countries as it is with Nexus 6P.
Google has done its best when it designed Pixel and Pixel XL. Both smartphones have been fitted with premium hardware that offers flawless performances. However, Google didn’t take one important thing into consideration. The Pixel brand doesn’t benefit from the same global recognition as Nexus does. From the looks of it, this is the sole reason why Nexus 6P is still being kept alive.
The only other option that Google has is to put in motion a strong Pixel marketing campaign. This might sound like a rather simple task, but there’s a problem though. A new marketing campaign requires a large investment and Google isn’t one to spend money on marketing. Therefore, this leaves Nexus 6P as the main money bringer in foreign countries.
A couple of weeks ago rumors were pointing towards the fact that Google is developing Android Nougat’s successor. Google decided to prove that those rumors were real and uploaded the developer preview of Android 8.0. What’s interesting is that despite popular belief, Nexus 6P will be eligible to download Google’s latest operating system when it’s going to come out. The reason we are saying this is because Google is actually testing a special Nexus 6P Android 8.0 build right now.
However, the main reason why Android fans are still purchasing Nexus 6P smartphones is because they offer a “pure” Android experience. The smartphone also offers stable performances under any circumstances as a courtesy of its highly powerful Qualcomm octa-core Snapdragon 810 chipset that’s been coupled with an Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
