With the new Pixel, Google brings to smartphone users the best of Google through its own software and hardware under a single roof. Till date, a majority of Google’s Android software runs on gadgets made by companies like Lenovo, Samsung, and LG, where its presence was mostly downgraded to the background. However, with the new Google Pixel, the name is now at the forefront.

The new strategy of Google to control both software and hardware for its devices positions the firm more directly in war with Apple and a majority of its own Android associates. The American multinational company feels that this is a necessity due to the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Pixel: Purely Google’s Vision

Google has always found it to be very challenging to create a uniform experience when working with its hardware manufacturing partners as they often change the software to manufacture what they sell a bit unique from that of their rivals. Even its Nexus range of smartphones offered a display case for the best of its software, though a majority of the production and design process was dealt with by its hardware partners. But, the new Pixel is purely Google’s vision and it’s manufactured to the company’s exact specifications.
