Google hasn’t launched a flagship Pixel phone in India since the Pixel 3 series, which debuted in 2018. While the Pixel 4, Pixel 5, and Pixel 6 series were made available in other markets, the search engine giant never released these phones in India. The good news is that the Pixel 7 series is now confirmed to launch in India.
