Just a few hours ago Google launched a series of its latest products where Google Pixel 4 was the main highlight of the launch event. The device is really amazing and has a lot of new upgrades that are worth appreciating Google. The device starts at $799 and will be shipped globally from 24th October except India.
Sadly, Pixel 4 is not coming to India as the device has Soli chip in the front sensor that violates the guidelines of India’s National Frequency Allocation Plan standards. The device uses a 60 GHz frequency band which is not allowed for public or commercial use in India.
The soli chip has various functions such as air gestures control for numerous commands on the device and also for face unlock. There are no chances of releasing a different model for India by removing the Soli chip as it is crucial for face unlock and there is no fingerprint scanner in Pixel 4 which gives a strong reason to use Soli Chip.
Sabrina Ellis, VP of Product Management at Google, said at the event today. “For instance, Pixel 4 has the fastest secure face unlock on a smartphone, because the process starts before you have even picked up the smartphone,” she claimed. “Motion sense prepares the camera when you reach for your Pixel 4, so you don’t need to tap the screen,” she added.
This restriction wouldn’t be a financial loss for google even though India is the second largest market for smartphones as Pixel devices are too costly for Indian market and the prices substantially increases every year.
