Last year, when Google announced the Pixel 4 and 4 XL, it left Indian fans wanting as the devices did not make it to India. This time too it seems to be the case. During the launch of Pixel 4A, Google also teased the upcoming Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL, which is the companies way to showcase their software along with flagship hardware. This time too it seems, the giant will leave Indians high and dry.
According to a blog post by Google, Pixel 5 with 5G connectivity will come to countries like the UK, the US, Canada, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Australia and Taiwan. The notable omission in the list is India for which the company seems to have its reasons. The Pixel Flagship lineup starting from the Pixel 4 Series had Soli chip inside which allowed the users to trigger certain functions on the smartphone by gestures. And for the company to launch a smartphone with such a chip, it seems they have to acquire specific permissions, which of course, Google never bothered to. Thus they ended up not launching the smartphones in India and this year too, it seems to be the case.
The Pixel 5 Series is expected to come with Snapdragon 865 or 865 Plus with 5G connectivity, punch hole display and a fingerprint scanner on the back. It is also expected to feature Pixel exclusive features thanks to the specially dedicated chip and customised Android software.
