Given the increased price from the 7a to the Pixel 6a (test) and the relatively small price difference with the currently good Pixel 7 (test), sales figures are unlikely to be particularly high.
Pixel 9 series with two Pro models
The Pixel 9 series is expected in fall 2024. According to the source, three models will be released: a normal Pixel 9 and two Pixel 9 Pro. The Pixel 9 is expected to be roughly the same size as the Pixel 8, while the Pixel 9 Pro (“komodo”) will have a roughly 6.7-inch display.

According to sources, for 2025, depending on the success of the fold models, Google is thinking about a flip foldable in the style of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 or the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra (comparison test). The “Pixel Flip” will likely be unveiled at the same time as the Pixel 10 series.

It should also be noted that Google still plays a small role in the global smartphone market. In the second quarter of 2023, Google wasn’t even among the top five largest smartphone brands, leaving it far behind Oppo’s ten percent market share, according to Canalys. In Germany, according to a study, Google’s smartphone market share was around two percent in March 2023.
