Google Pixel 4 XL
Google launched the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones during its Made By Google event that was held in New York. The headline feature, as always, was the camera but Google did spring a few surprises during the event. The Pixel 4 features a radar sensor, dubbed Project Soli during development and now called Motion Sense. This allows the smartphone to support air gestures — so you can wave your hands at your phone to execute certain actions.
Google Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL price
Google Pixel 4 is priced at $799 (roughly Rs. 57,000) and the Google Pixel 4 XL is priced at $899 (roughly Rs. 64,000). Shipping starts from October 24, while pre-orders begin from today. These phones are available through every major US carrier, which is a first for the Pixel lineup. The Pixel 4 is available in three colour variants — Just Black, Clearly White, and a limited edition Oh So Orange. Pixel 4 buyers get 3 months of Google One, which includes 100GB of cloud storage and 1 on 1 pro sessions if you need help with using the phone.
The Pixel 4 will not be launching in India. Google issued a statement about this that reads, “Google has a wide range of products that we make available in different regions around the world. We determine availability based on a variety of factors, including local trends, and product features. We decided not to make Pixel 4 available in India. We remain committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to India.”
