This is the most disturbing Pixel 5 rumor we’ve heard so far
Google owns the most popular mobile operating system in the world, but it’s still somehow unable to make smartphones that people line up to buy. The Nexus and Pixel phones have hardly been best-selling devices despite Google’s significant progress over the years. But just because Google can’t come up with an iPhone or Galaxy S equivalent that the masses want doesn’t mean it can afford to stop making high-end Pixel handsets.
Google phones are the only way the company can express its true vision for Android. With every new Android release, it’s Pixel phones that show the world what the new OS version is all about, and they’re the only phones that receive every update the moment it becomes available. Without a Pixel handset, Google would be stuck waiting for vendors to update their devices to the newest version of Android whenever they can manage it, and risk Android trailing iOS even more when it comes to adoption of the latest OS version. With that in mind, you’re certainly not going to appreciate this new Pixel 5 rumor, especially if you’re a loyal user of the series.
