Google Pixel 4 will not come to India and Twitter is not taking this news well

Pixel 4 features a soli chip that uses a 60 GHz frequency band and it's not allowed for public use in India.


Google launched several products yesterday (15 October) that included Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel buds, Nest Wi-Fi router and PixelBook Go. The highlight of the event were, of course, the smartphones — Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL — which are the first to use soli radar chips. This chip will not only make the face unlock process faster but will also let you perform tasks on the phone by hand gestures — play music, games and so on.

But the sad thing is that Soli chip is the very reason that the Pixel 4 won't be launching in India, Google confirmed the same. The reason is that the chip uses a 60 GHz frequency band that isn't allowed for public or commercial use in India.

As usual, people turned to Twitter to vent out their feelings about the Pixel 4, and the tweets make it clear that people aren't too happy about it.
