Google announced on Tuesday that the newly-launched Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones will not be available in India. In a statement, the company said it has decided not to make Pixel 4 duo available in the country. The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL were launched at an event in New York on Tuesday, with the company revealing their features, price, and specifications.
“We decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India,” a Google spokesperson said. “Google has a wide range of products that we make available in different regions around the world. We determine availability based on a variety of factors, including local trends, and product features.
The Google Pixel 4 features a radar sensor, dubbed Project Soli during development, and now called Motion Sense. This allows the smartphone to support air gestures — so you can wave your hands at your phone to execute certain actions. This works on 60 GHz spectrum.
May be Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are not launching in India due to 60 GHz spectrum licensing issues in the country.
“We remain committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to India,” the Google spokesperson said.
Google introduced the new Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel book Go, Pixel Earbuds, and Nest Mini during its annual hardware event in New York on Tuesday. The Google Pixel 4 comes with a starting price tag of $799 (roughly Rs. 57,000) and Pixel 4 XL for $899 (roughly Rs. 64,000). The phones will be shipped on October 24 in multiple countries, excluding India.
However, not until the last few hours of the launch had we started heard rumblings about the Mountain View giant skipping past India for the launch of the Pixel 4. Fast forward the launch, which essentially established Pixel 4 as the epitome of next generation computational photography, we now have an official statement from Google India.
It reads: “Google has a wide range of products that we make available in different regions around the world. We decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India. We remain committed to our current Pixel 3a phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel and other hardware products to India.”
For the pixel lovers in the country, the announcement has brought sad news right before Diwali.
