Google Will Not Launch Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro in India, Here’s Why

Google Pixel 6 Pro

Google launched the Pixel 6 series on October 19 in the US. Outside its home country, the Pixel flagship smartphones will be launched in the UK, Taiwan and five other international markets. Google’s latest flagship smartphones will not make their way to India. The company told Gadgets360 that the Pixel 6 India launch is not in the pipeline at the moment. In an emailed statement, a Google spokesperson told the publication that the reason for not launching the Pixel 6 series in India is the supply crunch. “Due to a variety of factors including global demand-supply issues, we are not able to make our products available in all markets. We remain committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to more countries in the future,” the statement read.

Google launched the Pixel 4a 4G last year and skipped launching the 5G variant and even the Pixel 5. The company has now also skipped plans to launch its latest flagship phones in India, owing to supply chain issues. The two Google flagships go on sale in the US, UK, Taiwan, Japan, Canada, France, Germany and Australia.
