Yesterday, Google has launched a low-end smartphone Google Pixel 4a. At the launch event, Google announced that it will also launch a 5G variant of Google Pixel 4a and its next flagship phone Google Pixel 5 in the upcoming months (probably September to October).
The company has revealed the list of countries where Google Pixel 5 and Google Pixel 4a (5G) will make available. The list includes Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Taiwan, the US, and the UK. It doesn’t include India.
One of the reasons could be that Google Pixel 5 will also feature the Soli Radar sensor. The feature lets users use the phone without touching it using Soli Radar Technology. The sensors along with advanced software algorithms can recognize gestures and detect when you’re nearby. The Indian government didn’t approve the feature so that’s why Google didn’t launch Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, last year.
Google said in a statement, “Regarding the two new 5G Pixel phones that were announced globally today, these will not be available in India or Singapore, based on a variety of factors including local market trends and product features. We remain deeply committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to these countries.”
Google hasn’t shared any details of Pixel 5 but said, it will reveal details in the coming days.
