The American tech giant, Google launched its much-awaited pixel series recently. The Google Pixel 6 Series comprises Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones and it comes with exciting new features and AI capabilities. However, it is bad news for the pixel fans in India that the company has not intended to release the series in India. The company said the decision is currently taken for the initial stage.
The company earlier announced that it is launching the Google Pixel 6 series in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. India was not included in the list. Besides, China, the Middle East, and other European countries are also not included in the list.
A variety of factors are the reason for not launching smartphones in India. According to reports, demand and supply issues are the key reasons found by the company and the company is not able to make its products available in India, read reports.
Google earlier decided not to bring its new Pixel phones to India and according to experts, the tech giant does not consider India as a priority market when the pixel devices are considered.
Navkendar Singh, Research Director at market intelligence firm IDC India said, “The Indian market is slightly different than other international business markets, and here 90 percent of the smartphone market is below Rs 20,000. Indian customers opt and look for the great specification in any smartphone or device, so the pixel might contribute to the taste and it was found that the previous pixel series did not attract the customers.”
However, the Google Pixel 6 has been launched at a price of $599 (roughly Rs 45,000) in the US, while the Pixel 6 Pro has been priced at $899 (roughly Rs 67,500). The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro also come with Android 12 out-of-the-box. In the series, the Pixel 6 Pro offers a superior experience with a 120Hz LTPO OLED display and triple rear cameras. The Pixel 6, on the other hand, comes with a 90Hz OLED display and has a dual rear camera setup.
