The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones were just launched with Google’s new Tensor chipset, revamped camera setup, and Android 12 software out of the box. Soon after the launch, Google announced the newly launched Pixel 6 duo will be available for pre-order starting today. The devices will be available in eight markets only and that doesn’t include India.
No Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro for India
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones are now available for pre-order in eight nations. The Pixel 6 series is now up for pre-order in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and Taiwan. Unfortunately, India is not on the list.
This isn’t the first time the search engine giant has skipped launching its phone in India. Previously, the company had skipped the launch of Pixel 5 series smartphones in India and also the Pixel 4a 5G was not launched in India. The Google Pixel 4a is the only Google device available in India right now and it was launched back in October 2020 一 a couple of months after the global launch.
The Indian Google Store website has also not listed any Pixel smartphones apart from the Pixel 4a. Interestingly, the site has listed Nest Aware and Nest Cam on the Indian site which means we might hear more on the same from Google India soon. For now, there is no word on the availability of the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in India.
In terms of pricing, the Pixel 6 starts at $599 (roughly Rs 45,900) and the Pixel 6 Pro starts at $899 (roughly Rs 67,500).
