In an emailed statement to the publication, a Google spokesperson said that the Pixel 6 series will not be launching in India due to many factors. The statement read, “Due to a variety of factors including global demand supply issues, we are not able to make our products available in all markets. We remain committed to our current Pixel phones and look forward to bringing future Pixel devices to more countries in the future.”
