[Ionic4] Why does CLI create file.page.ts instead of file.component.ts

So I was wondering why can we still choose between page and component when creating element with “ionic g”, I read everywhere that page and component are the same thing so why does the CLI create page with file.page.ts and component with file.component.ts ?

Is it just a way for us to identify which component we consider beeing a page ? or does it have another meaning ?

Think hard about learning to search before posting

For future mention this topic was kinda discussed in here:
