It is likely that Google settled on the name ‘Pixel’ given the incredible performance of it’s camera. Camera is one of the most important and highly discussed factor for anyone who love clicking photographs, be it amateurs or professionals.

DxOMark in it’s summary:

Pixel raises the bar for what is possible with a smartphone camera. Image quality continues to improve, and the increased use of HDR+ to render scenes that have previously been difficult for small sensors such as those in smartphones broadens what is possible with these ubiquitous devices. While we have reviewed other smartphone cameras that matched the Pixel’s numbers in a few categories, the Pixel is uniquely capable of capturing outstanding images under a wide variety of conditions, and is also among the best we have tested for video capture.
