Some other experts have raised the question on Google Like we read out the statement of Tarun Pathak who is the Associate Director, Mobile device and Ecosystem at Counterpoint research said India will always remain as an attractive market if talk about the business of smartphones so Google need to focus on.

He said, “Premium segment is growing at a much faster rate than the overall market and that is, in fact, a right time to scale operation in India. Maybe Google will look at other SKUs for India market going forward like Pixel3a.”

Some experts shared their opinion, readout what they said

First, we are going to share the opinion of Navkendar Singh, research director at International Data Corporation India said, “An emerging and value conscious market like India won’t help Google move to needle in terms of both volume and value, with only flagships in the market. Considering the small premium smartphone segment with intense competition from Apple and Samsung, India need a more affordable segment play and we can expect Pixel4a to be launched in mid-segment.” 

Now if talk about the pixel smartphones which recently launched, Prabhu Ram who is working in Head- Industry Intelligence Group shared something. He said, “This is where Google Pixel with its best in class camera capabilities has an advantage where the Pixel has faltered is in getting its pricing and go-to marketing strategy right.” He believes that the smartphone camera that you are looking for, this one is the best one.
