Karlston posted a topic in Mobile NewsGoogle will not be selling the Pixel 4 and 4 XL in India Google unveiled the Pixel 4 and 4 XL flagships smartphones at an event yesterday. The devices see the addition of a secondary rear camera for improved abilities in the camera department, a 90Hz refresh rate for the display, improved Google Assistant features and more. However, a standout feature of the devices is the addition of a radar sensor called ‘Project Soli’ which the firm now officially terms ‘Motion Sense’. This sensor allows for the ability to use air gestures to control the phone and aids in faster face unlock. That very feature might be why these flagships offerings will not be making it for sale in the Indian sub-continent. In response to a user question on Twitter, the Made by Google account confirmed that the company has decided “not to make Pixel 4 available in India”. While the tweet does not pinpoint the exact reason, it is likely due to regulatory restrictions in India that prevent the usage of 60GHz bands for commercial use. The ‘Project Soli’ chip in these devices leverages the 60GHz band to sense precise movement around the device. With premium smartphone sales seeing an increase in the country, the inability for Google to offer its latest smartphones might hurt the company. Samsung recently claimed that it holds 72% of the premium device market share in India (in the ₹40,000 (~$560) and above segment). With the omission of the latest Pixel devices in the market, users of older Pixel phones waiting to upgrade their devices have the Pixel 3a as an option or might have to go the way of Samsung or other OEMs. While the tweet from the company suggests that it looks forward to “bringing future Pixel and other hardware products to India”, it isn’t clear if it points at the possibility of a Pixel 4a in the future sans the Project Soli radar chip or if there are other plans. It is too early to read too far into what the company plans for its future devices. Source: Google will not be selling the Pixel 4 and 4 XL in India (Neowin) If you like this post, then this post.
The AchieVer posted a topic in Mobile ManiaPixel 4 XL leak suggests two back cameras and hole-punch screen Oh, and the fingerprint reader might be in the display. Every version of the Pixel to date has had a single rear camera. However, it is rumored that the next Pixel XL model will get two. The next Google Pixel might be getting more cameras and a sleek design overhaul. According to a leaked photo posted on the site SlashLeaks on Wednesday, the Pixel 4 XL will have two cameras on the back instead of the single one found on the Pixel 2 XL and 3 XL. Famously Google has had only a single rear camera on every Pixel model large and small. The company embraced using AI and machine learning to create photos that rival phones with two rear cameras like the iPhone XS or three back cameras like the Huawei P20 Pro. A second camera could be used for something other than photography like perhaps AR. This drawing posted on SlashLeaks purportedly shows the Pixel 4 XL with dual rear and front facing cameras. SlashLeaks The drawings of the unreleased 4 XL also show an oval hole-punch display for two selfie cameras like on the new Galaxy S10 Plus. Famously, the Pixel 3 lacks a notch while the Pixel 3 XL has one of the largest found on any phone. Curious enough the drawing doesn't show a fingerprint reader on the back. This omission could indicate that the next Pixel phone will have an in-screen fingerprint reader like the OnePlus 6T and Galaxy S10. Of course, the drawing hasn't been verified so it should be taken with a grain of salt. That said, it's still fun to think about. Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Source
