Here's why Google Pixel 4 will not launch in India anytime soon

by KF Team

Google Pixel 4 is the latest smartphone from Google, launched at an event in California this week. Successor to last year's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the Pixel 4 series brings several major upgrades to the flagship smartphone lineup including a 90Hz display, improved camera specifications, faster internals, and refined software. However, Google has officially announced that the phones won't be launching in India anytime soon.

While the company hasn't given any concrete reasons for this decision, it has ambiguously said that it has taken this measure considering the trends and demand for different markets across the world. However, some reports online suggest that this is being done because of a technical and legal issue.

The new Pixel 4 lineup has a new feature called Project Soli. With the help of Project Soli, users can make use of gestures like swiping or waving their palms over the phone to perform actions like volume control, switch songs, play games, and a lot more.

This technology uses a micro radar chip that works on the 60Hz spectrum frequency. However, Indian authorities haven't yet authorised commercial use of this frequency, and only warrants military use. It is now up to the regulatory bodies to decide whether it would exempt Google Pixel 4 of this rule.
