Google has now stopped selling the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a smartphones in the market as the company has already launched the Pixel 5a 5G and is soon going to start selling the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
In a statement to DigitalTrends, Google said: “With our current forecasts, we expect Google Store in the U.S. to sell out of Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 in the coming weeks following the launch of Pixel 5a (5G). The Pixel 5a (5G) is a great option for customers and delivers valuable hardware upgrades compared to the Pixel 4a (5G), all at a lower price point.”
Both of these smartphones are showing as “Out of Stock” in the Google Store in the United States. This means that the only Pixel series smartphones currently available for purchase are the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5a, both of which don’t have 5G support.
It’s surprising that the tech giant has discontinued these smartphones in regions where the Pixel 5a isn’t going to be available. For those who are unaware, the newly announced budget Pixel device is only for the United State and Japan.
Google has already unveiled its upcoming premium smartphone lineup — the Google Pixel 6 series and going by the launch of its predecessor, the devices are expected to be officially available for purchase from next month.
