Googles recently announced Pixel 4 is reportedly skipping out on a launch in India one of the largest phone markets in the world due to a spectrum licensing issue with the Motion Sense radar technology that powers the phones gesture and face unlocking features, according to NDTVs Gadgets360.
Per the report, the problem is that Motion Sense (previously known as Project Soli) works on the 60GHz band of the spectrum, for which Google was apparently unable to get a license from the Indian government to use in the country. Still, not shipping the phone in India is somewhat strange, given that Google is planning to launch the device in Japan without Motion Sense features, which wont be arriving on devices in that country until spring 2020, per a Google support page.
We decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India, a Google spokesperson said in a statement to Gadgets360. Google has a wide range of products that we make available in different regions around the world. We determine availability based on a variety of factors, including local trends, and product features.
Given that the Indian smartphone market is largely dominated by cheaper devices from companies like Samsung, Xiaomi, and Vivo, pricier flagship devices like Apples iPhones or Googles Pixels tend to struggle to make an impact. Add in the prospect that an Indian model would have to miss out on the Pixel 4s new marquee features, and its easy to see how Google decided to simply skip out a launch entirely.
Its not the end of Pixel devices in India, though: Googles spokesperson added that the company is still committed to [its] current Pixel phones and look[s] forward to bringing future Pixel devices to India. But if youre a Pixel fan in India, youll likely have to look elsewhere for a new phone this fall. ...
