Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro may not launch in India

Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will feature Google's first in-house chipset, Tensor.

Highlights
  • Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be available in Australia, Canada, France, Japan, France, Taiwan, the US and the UK countries.
  • The flagships will not be available in India, at least initially.
  • Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be launched later this year.

Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagships were recently confirmed by the company. They will come with the in-house Tensor chipset and multiple camera modules on the back. While the complete Pixel 6 series specifications haven’t been outed yet, the Mountain View giant has revealed the markets where it will be available later this year. Unfortunately, the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will not launch in India, well, at least not in the first round. This may come as a disappointment for Pixel fans considering the lineup is set to bring some significant upgrades in hardware and design over the previous generation. This won’t be the first time that Google is ignoring the Indian market as the Pixel 4 and Pixel 5 lineup never made it to India as well. However, the cheaper Pixel 4a did make it to India.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be available in eight countries initially, including Australia, Canada, France, Japan, France, Taiwan, the US and the UK. However, the company hasn’t revealed the exact date of availability but it said the phones will be available in these markets in September or sometime in Q4 2021. There are chances the number of countries where Google Pixel 6 will be available could increase after the launch event.
