Pixel 4 Will Not Come To India, Here Is Why

In Made by Google event yesterday, Google announced the Pixel 4, but unfortunately, the device will not be available in India

In Made by Google event yesterday, Google announced the Pixel 4, but unfortunately, the device will not be available in India. The reason for this is the Soli Radar chip inside each Pixel 4 phone.

According to the NFAP (short for National Frequency Allocation Plan), the chip makes use of the 60 GHz ISM band, which is not allowed for commercial purposes in the country.

Google said that the decision to not launch its latest handset in India came down to several reasons. The company determined the nations to launch different products based on several factors, like the features of the products or the trends in those countries. They have decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India but the company still expressed its desire to launch other Pixel devices in the country.

A lot of features of the Pixel 4 is possible thanks to the Soli chip, including gestures and face unlock. These functions might not work properly without the chip inside.

In this situation, users in India may have to wait until the company launches its Pixel 4a, a more budget-friendly version if they want to experience the device’s camera setup.

It is common that whenever a new phone is released, users will have one or two pieces of new technology. But the Pixel 4, users will have four new functions in one device, including a faster Google Assistant, radar-enabled spatial awareness, face unlock, and a high refresh rate.

Pixel 4’s design also follows a new language that is different from not only the previous handset of Google but also the company’s other hardware.

However, with the iPhone 11 Pro taking away the position of the best camera phone, we will have to wait and see if the Pixel 4 can dethrone Apple’s candidate.
