It seems like Pixel 6 is launching on 28th October in US and Europe. In Europe, it is getting launched at 649 euros with free Bose Headphones 700 (for preorders) cry pensive Seems like a great deal!
Any idea how we can get this in India? ofc without travelling to US or Europe or asking someone else to get it.

Through family/friends?
Via freight forwarders you got to pay 50% purchase value as customs (+10% state tax on price)

Btw is it Bose nc 700?
In US, they’re giving pixel buds-a (100$ value) free

It is this one which they get as free for preorders: https://www.amazon.in/Bose-Noise-Cancelling-Hea...

The reviews are really good for Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. It’s really a shame that they are not gonna launch in India. It seems they don’t wanna target poor markets.

Probably because there is no real presence of Google as a brand here in india ( b2x is the service partner and handle all issues )

Same is the case with Microsoft. Product quality wise, Surface pro and book series are simply the best (even though they’re expensive) but service wise many brands outperform MS which is why no Surface pro 8 launch yet here and just like SP 7, they might launch SP 8 Somewhere around April/May next year
^^ Expecting the same from Google too w/ Pixel 6/pro (at least one model will see the launch here eventually)

can vouch on that.
my brother’s firm gave them surface books. after few years, some normal hardware issues which do happen when you buy thousands of laptops, but there was no quick hardware support for enterprise grade customer. finally they switched to dell latitudes and now dell seamlessly handles all RMA requests.
same goes with google. repairing a pixel device is a huge headache in india coz they have almost no existence. for getting a replacement charger you have to contact google, they will in turn hook you up with b2x who will quote you some hefty money and then your product will arrive in months.
xiaomi once used to have crappy service centers. now they are one of the fastest, if not the best in India. a brand has to build its back end to serve customers, microsoft, google, sony have none.
