Google Discontinues Pixel 4A 5G and Pixel 5 before the Pixel 6 Launch
After the launch of Pixel 5a (5G), Google recently indicated that the company is discontinuing two other Pixel devices. The devices are the Pixel 4A 5G and the Pixel 5. Both the models are out of stock according to the current list on Google’s online store. The remaining stock at other retailers likely won’t last long.
Google’s spokesperson indicated the same in a statement. “With our current forecasts, we expect Google Store in the US to sell out of Pixel 4A (5G) and Pixel 5 in the coming weeks following the launch of Pixel 5A (5G). These products will continue to be available through some partners while supplies last.”
The decision to discontinue Pixel 4a 5G makes sense after the company launched the model’s successor- Pixel 5a 5G, but the company is yet to launch a successor to the Pixel 5 which the company has discontinued long before the Pixel 6’s arrival this fall. The company had also discontinued the Pixel 4 and 4 XL less than a year after their introduction.
Neither the Pixel 5 nor the Pixel 4A came in India. Speaking about 5A, the smartphone will also not dispatch in India as of now. The Pixel 5A will be only be available to consumers in Japan and the United States.
Google recently revealed that it will ship its upcoming flagship smartphones, which is the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. The box will not have a charger.
