With the announcement of the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones earlier this month, Google has been receiving a wave of glowingly positive reception recently.
Due to this, and the new ‘Made by Google’ branding, it seems that Alphabet, the company Google belongs to, saw its stocks skyrocket. According to a variety of sources, the stock of Alphabet was priced at USD 821 per share. It might continue to rise as its official release across the globe nears. We haven’t seen a stock rise like this since Nintendo experienced similar effects thanks to Pokemon Go.
Why is this important? It’s because it might just mean the Google Pixel is indeed the device that will truly represent Android. Tech fans have often debated Apple vs. Android before, and the Pixel might just challenge the popularity of the iPhone.
Of course, we’re not sure just yet, as we have yet to see an official release here in the Philippines. But if this seemingly limitless rise of the Pixel is any indication, then Google’s move towards the mobile market might be the real deal.
