Alphabet's chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, says Google has revealed that industry-wide pressure on high-end phones was the main cause that led to Pixel's poor sales during the first quarter of 2019.

"But I do think, especially since the ecosystem is constantly pushing it forward, I continue to be excited about the innovation speed". "Really, just help us understand how that hardware business is important to Google and how you are thinking about it long-term?".

Alphabet, Google's parent company, on Monday reported its Q1 2019 earnings.
