- The Google Pixel 7 series will apparently be launched in India.
- The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will launch next month during Google’s fall hardware event.
- The country last saw a flagship launch on Google in 2018 with the Pixel 3 series.
In a surprising turn of events, Google India confirmed that the Pixel 7 series is coming to India.
If you’re wondering, this is certainly a big deal for the Indian pixel community. The last major flagship releases you’ve seen are the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices. After a good four long years, the upcoming Pixel 7 series, which will start on October 6th, will also appear in India.
While Google India hasn’t specifically mentioned the release date, we’re assuming it will be coordinated with MadebyGoogle’s fall event, which is just weeks away.

Considering that the Indian launch of the Pixel 6a coincided with the global release, it’s safe to assume that these new flagships will be coming to India next month. Additionally, Flipkart, the e-commerce platform that only sells Pixel devices for the country, has put up a banner promoting the phone. It is first discovered by the tipster Abhishek Yadavsuggesting that the launch of the Pixel 7 devices is imminent.
Despite the official teaser, it is still unclear whether the new Pixel Watch will also find its way to the Indian markets.
Google has been releasing Pixel devices in India since their inception, that is, up to the Pixel 3 series. The Pixel 4 series could not be launched in the country due to the integrated Soli radar technology, which was not approved by local regulators. However, the following year, Google released the Pixel 4a, the tinted version of the flagship models.
The Pixel 5 series and Pixel 5a have been completely skipped during the pandemic for various reasons. The Google Pixel 6 series has not been officially launched in the country by Google. Still, they were sold on e-commerce platforms like Amazon India. However, users who purchased were not assured any guarantees alongside service offerings from Google India as these were reportedly imported.
Google India’s latest announcement seems to bring some calm to the nation’s pixel lovers. However, with so many flagship options available on the market, it will be fascinating to see how the new Tensor G2 Pixel series stacks up against them.
