Pixel phones or any inhouse products of Google are well known for their software, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are no exception. Google has made the Pixel 4 series soo smart and hi-tech that it won’t be available in some countries including one of the biggest mobile phone markets in the world, India! fun apart, Pixel 4 series mobile phones are not coming to India due to the sensor technology used on these Google Phones.

Google has used the Soli sensor on new Pixel series phones, Soli is basically a radar that can detect hand gestures or air gestures and also helps the in-built face unlock feature to work insanely fast. Soli can detect if you are near the device, coming near the device and going away from the device. You can do too many things just by waving on top of the screen.

Many tech news portals are mentioning that Pixel 4 series mobile phones are not coming to India due to 60GHz spectrum licensing issues in the country. I still need to do some more digging about this but for now, this has been confirmed by the Google official that they are not releasing Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL to India. Google has made the Pixel 4 series phones more lively and interactive than ever, unfortunately, Indian Pixel fans won’t get their hands on these phones.

There are two camera lenses on Google Pixel 4, a normal and a telephoto lens but there is no ultra-wide lens which is kind of weird. However talking about the camera lenses, Google said: “ultra-wide is fun, but telephoto is more important”. The Pixel dual camera offers ultra-res zoom, allowing users to actually shoot distant object without losing quality. There is one more unique camera feature called “AstroPhotography” which can help you take beautiful photos of the night sky or cosmos. I think soon this is going to be a very popular feature among camera-centric mobile phones by other manufacturers because this is something really new and users would like to have it on their phones.
