Google has achieved a major milestone of shipping 10 million Pixel phones for the first time in 2023. Beyond that, Google aims for another 10 million Pixel smartphone shipments in 2024.

According to NikkeiAsia, Google sets a target of over 10 million shipments of Pixel phones in 2024. The company seeks to repeat the streak of 2023, with sales reaching double digits (in million) for the first time.

The company is also aiming to begin Pixel smartphone production in India by the next quarter. It’s part of taking the production facility away from China and Vietnam, for supply chain resilience.

“Google reached a milestone last year for its Pixel phones and it has set an ambitious goal of [shipping] another 10 million units in 2024,” another source with direct knowledge told Nikkei Asia.

Seems like Google’s decision to move part of its Pixel phone production to Vietnam was prompted by the US-China trade war. Notably, Samsung also has two manufacturing hubs outside of China, in Vietnam and India.

Google Pixel 8a

Google Pixel 8a price leak suggests an unfortunate increase over the Pixel 7a. The company is all set to introduce its next affordable Pixel smartphone next month. Recent developments suggest it would cost more than its predecessor.

Passionategeekz spotted evidence related to the Google Pixel 8a price in Canada. Info suggests that the Pixel 8a would cost CS$708.99 and CS$792.99 for 128GB and 256GB storage variants, respectively.

Recently, it has been revealed that the Pixel 8a will be available in four color options. These color variants could be Obsidian (black), Porcelain (white), Bay (blue), and Mint (green).

The expected Canadian price indicates a nominal price increase in Pixel 8a. Meanwhile, consumers will benefit from many fruitful upgrades and software-derived features, which previous Pixels won’t get.

Google Pixel 8a could sport a 6.1-inch OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate and up to 1400 nits peak brightness. It will be equipped with Tensor G3 chipset, making the Pixel 8a more powerful and power efficient than the 7a.

Last but not least, Google is rumored to equip the Pixel 8a with a 4500mAh battery. Charging support is also said to increase to 27W, a notable upgrade over the Pixel 7a’s 18W.

New Android 15 feature will show health of your phone’s storage

Google Pixel 8 Pro Mint

Google is developing a new feature for Android 15 that will display the health of your phone’s storage chip. The most recent Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy flagships offer up to 7 years of software update support.

The phone needs to maintain its hardware components as the software support gets longer. Google would bring a fruitful feature to Android 15, showing the health of your phone’s storage chip.

Android lacks iOS-like native battery health feature, but Google is exploring beyond. Storage chip is way more important than a phone’s battery as the battery can be replaced but a damaged storage chip will remove all the data.

A commit to AOSP sets up work for a new API in Android for displaying the health of a storage chip. When deployed, the feature will display the health of the chip based on indicators from UFS chips as a percentage.

At present, it isn’t a part of Android, however, Google is constantly developing this feature. Notably, the OS already collects this data so this API would simply surface it to apps such as the Settings menu.

There’s no clearance on the release of this feature by Google. However, Pixel users should get it with the Android 15 upgrade, which is set to release sometime in October this year.
