Samsung may have made Google its biggest rival in the smartphone market. Previously, Samsung considered replacing Google with Microsoft’s Bing as the default search engine on Galaxy devices. This attempt by Samsung may have triggered Google to seek Pixel boost for Android and Search.

According to a report, Google managed to achieve a milestone of selling 10 million Pixel devices in 2023. The company sets an ambitious target to exceed 10 million Pixel sales target this year as well. There are multiple motives for Google apart from expanding the smartphone business.
