Google Pixel 4 Phones
Last but not least, Google introduced 2 new pixel devices, namely Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The phones come with really cool features including Motion Sense which can get things done without you needing to touch the phone.
However, because of the Soil chip, which brings Motion Sense functionality to Pixels Phones, Google won’t be able to launch the same in India.
