Google's Pixel 4 Smartphone to Miss in Indian Market

Google has said its new smartphone Pixel 4 will not be available in the Indian market, citing challenges in securing the frequency needed to control its critical component, the Soli radar chip.

The new smartphone was unveiled last week Tuesday in New York and is set to hit the markets on October 24.

In a statement, the tech giant’s spokesperson said “We decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India,”

The critical chip that controls facial recognition and gestures operates in the 60 Gigahertz frequency. The Indian government does not permit companies to operate in the frequency.

India’s Department of Telecommunications is yet to comment on the decision.

India joins a list of companies including Japan, Taiwan, Italy, Spain, Germany and the UK, where the Motion Sense feature is yet to be available.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”

Mr. Khodaverdian, a contributor to this site, is available for free consultations 24/7 by calling 800-984-4123.
