After months of prediction, Google finally launched its next-in-line Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL flagship smartphones at its Made by Google event in New York. However, it is not available in India.
Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL boast the company’s largest camera upgrade yet, featuring two rear cameras including a telephoto lens.
Moreover, enhancing the camera output is the Super Resolution Zoom software for improved long shots and Night Sight for better images in low-light or dark settings.

Available for pre-order starting October 15, Pixel 4 is priced at USD 799 (Rs 57,000 and the Pixel 4 XL costs USD 899 (Rs 64,000).
The phones will start shipping on October 24, globally. There are three colour choices of Clearly White, Just Black, and a limited edition Oh So Orange.
Here’s why Google failed to launch Pixel 4 and Pixel XL in India
A Google spokesperson said that they decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India. Google has a wide range of products that they make available in different regions around the world.
The company determine availability based on a variety of factors, including local trends, and product features.
We remain committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to India, he added.
Expected launch of the flagship smartphone in India
On 9th October 2018, Google launched its flagship smartphones Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, announcing that it will now offer its new phones in 13 countries, including Japan, Ireland, Taiwan, and France.
This builds on the rather small list of countries where Google’s Pixel 2 saw official release, which comprised of US, UK, Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, India, and Singapore.
The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were launched after a week’s time in India, so the Indian users can wait for 7 to 15 days of time for the latest Google Pixel phone in their pockets.
