Google unveiled its flagship Pixel 4 smartphone last year but India was left gaping as it was announced that the series would not be coming to the country. The biggest reason behind the same was that the motion sensing feature that used 60GHz mmWave frequency to operate and as reports mentioned could not be secured by Google in India. However, now there could be good news in the offing as Indians can still buy the smartphone in the country via Amazon. The smartphones can be seen listed on Amazon India in different colour variants including the brand-new ‘Oh so Orange’ colour.
If we visit the Amazon India website or the app and search for Pixel 4, the search result includes Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL both of which are priced between Rs 70,999 and Rs 80,000. However, this pricing is not entirely consistent as the Pixel 4 (4GB+64GB model) priced at Rs 79,990, while the Pixel 4 XL (64GB model) is priced lower at Rs 76,997.
One can also see the handsets listed in ‘Clearly White’ and ‘Just Black’ colour variants. The lowest priced model which we could find is the Pixel 4 (64GB model) Just Black variant at Rs 70,999.
We can still confirm that the Pixel 4 series have not been officially launched in India but then it is quite surprising to see Amazon sell the handsets with ‘Prime’ delivery and ‘Fulfilled by Amazon’ branding.
We should mention here that ‘Fulfilled by Amazon’ branding here means that the device “stored, packed and dispatched from Amazon fulfilment centres. Amazon directly handles delivery, customer service and returns.”
So what this essentially means is that Amazon is directly involved in selling Pixel 4 smartphones in India. As per Hindustan Times, Google has re-confirmed that these devices are not available officially in the country.
