Google Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro have finally received support for running 5G networks in India. Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio are the two telecom operators who have launched 5G. Vodafone Idea (Vi), the struggling telecom operator, is still trying to figure out its 5G rollout plans. While 5G has been in the country for about 6 months now, Pixel devices still had not received the support for them. But now, it has finally come via a stable update. For a few months now, users in India were using 5G on Pixel devices with the help of a beta update. However, post the release of the March 2023 Feature Drop update from Google, all the Pixel devices which are capable of supporting 5G will support 5G networks in India.
