Then, after finally being able to ramp up production, Google may have made a decision to delay the Pixel 4a's release again to avoid the recent slump in smartphones sales, which has seen smartphone sales drop by 20% worldwide.

Google has discontinued the well-liked Pixel 3a and 3a XL in advance of the Pixel 4a arrived. Google is planning to fire up the mobile market by looking at this feature. There is one smartphone that matches the above description: the Pixel 4a.

Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 3a.

Google's Pixel 4a has been "just around the corner" for a while now, but further certification means it could finally get showcased this month or August time. Google may consider it more favorable to launch the cell phone in the second half of the year due to the current coronavirus crisis.

The Pixel 3a maintained some of the Google-exclusive features of the Pixel 3, like Night Sight for taking photos in the dark and Call Screen, a feature for screening calls as its name implies.

Some of the U.S. leader's sharpest words were for the media, which he accused of a campaign to smear opponents as racists. Interior officials said they would hand out 300,000 face coverings to spectators who gather on the National Mall.

Let's leave Pixel 5 aside for a sec.

Amazon is running a big promotion on some of Google's flagships, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Unique 7/1, 9:37 a.m. PT: The blue "Buy" button in the top rated-correct corner of the Pixel 3a's retail website page has been changed by a grayed-out "Out of stock" information. Therefore, it would not be surprising if Laudtec has received schematics for the canceled model.

Sadly for fans of the larger model, it doesn't appear that a Pixel 4a XL is being planned. It'll likely come in Black and Barely Blue colour options, and there's definitely a 128GB model - also potentially a 64GB version, though we haven't heard about that for a while. Rumors have generally been pointing to a July release date (although some suggest it will be unveiled towards the end of the year alongside the Pixel 5), and suffice to say it's July right now.

The specs for the Pixel 4a won't blow your mind, but that's exactly the point of this phone line.
