The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are HTC-made phones, but according to rumors, the Huawei was actually the first in the list of Google to be the builder of their new smartphones. What exactly is search engine giant's reason behind considering another brand than the latter?
Why Did Huawei Decline Google's Offer?
The plan of Google in tying up again with Huawei in building the Pixel was actually declined by the Chinese Smartphone maker because of some reasons.
First, Huawei did not like the notion of Google in removing the maker's brand logo in the phone. It is actually evident to the leaked details of the phones that HTC's logo will not appear in any part of the phones. They will only be manufacturing it and will not receive public recognition for the work.
The second reason is that the Nexus 6P, which made these two companies collaborate with each other just to build it, was planned to be sold in four major carriers in the U.S. The problem was it did not materialize. The device was compatible with all of those carriers, but it was not sold through them.
Third, the release of the 2015 Google smartphone was only advertised in Google Store and on Huawei's website. The plan was to launch a multi-hundred million dollar ad movement but they ended up failing to air it on public.
Google and Huawei's Relationship After All
After all these reasons, Google's relationship with Huawei seemed to be not that abased. In fact, Google is convincing the Chinese tech to produce a device on 2017 as mentioned by Android Authority in their post. The device is reported to be not a Pixel one but a mid-range smartphone.
Huawei seemed to be very much conscious in recognizing them as a liaising firm, for the appearance of their brand in the smartphone design is very important.
Google Pixel and Pixel XL are reported to sport a 5- and 5.5-inch screens respectively. Both phones are said to run on 2.15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM and will be shipped with either 32 or 128GB of storage.
