Google Pixel 3 XL was launched around 6 months back and the phone has since been in news more often than not. At times it was due to the best in class camera performance or due to repeated software issues that users had reported. The phone was also not the most beautifully designed one and almost made it to our list of worst designed phones for 2018.
A huge notch and thick bezels suggested that design wasn’t Google’s forte. Even the leaked images of the upcoming budget Pixel series echo the same feelings. Now as per the latest reports, the company has decided to change it all and has setup, not one but three different teams to work on its upcoming smartphones’ designs. It is being reported that these teams will work independently and will not have any sort of communication with each other.
Google feels that this move will offer them a larger pool of designs to choose from and hopefully the future devices will be much better in terms of looks as well. Though it is not just the design that the company needs to work on, it may need to invest a lot in its distribution network as well. The recent official report of Pixel phones not performing up to the mark highlights the same.
We may have to wait for a few more days to get an official confirmation on this new strategy from Google and this announcement might happen at the upcoming Google IO starting in less than a weeks’ time. To recall, Google will debut its budget Pixel phones next week.
