Google announced on Tuesday that its new models- the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will not be available in India.
The company said in a statement that it had decided not to make available Pixel 4 duo in the region. At an event in New York on Tuesday, the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL were unveiled with the company unveiling their features, prices, and specifications.
“We decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India,” a Google spokesperson said. The reason behind not launching these models is that Google offers an array of products that it sells in different regions around the world and their availability is determined based on numerous factors such as local trends and product features.
Another reason as Gadgets 360 understands is that Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are not launching in India because of 60GHz spectrum licensing issues in the country.
The Google Pixel 4 has a radar sensor, dubbed Project Soli during development, and now called Motion Sense. This lets the smartphone support air gestures — so you can wave your hands at your phone to execute certain actions. This works on the 60GHz spectrum.
The Google spokesperson said that they are committed to their Pixel phones and in the future, they will bring other Pixel devices to India.
Google introduced and launched the new Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixelbook Go, Pixel Earbuds, and Nest Mini during its annual hardware event in New York on Tuesday.
