Three Google Pixel phones may launch this year, but how many are coming to India?

Google’s decision to skip India, one of the largest smartphone markets in the world, for the flagship Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL phones came a huge disappointment for many. However, the search giant did confirm that it will launch future Pixel smartphones in the country.

Gary Lineker’s celebrated quote that soccer is a simple game that “the Germans always win” might well be adapted to tennis and the inescapable dominance of Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open.
