Google has suspended Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, its flagship phones released in October last year. Both devices are sold out in the Google store in the United States, although some variants are still available in other regions at the moment.
“The Google Store sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 4 [and] 4 XL, “confirms a Google spokesman The Verge. “For people who are still interested in buying Pixel 4 [and] 4 XL, the product is available from some partners while stocks last. Just like all Pixel devices, Pixel 4 will continue to receive software and security updates for at least three years since the device first became available on the Google Store in the United States. ”
It is unusual for Google to stop a Pixel phone so quickly. Pixels 2 and 3 went on sale for about 18 months each, with Google stopping sales about six months after the introduction of their successors. The move means that Google technically no longer has a flagship phone on sale.
That’s a technical aspect, however – Google introduced the new Pixel 4A earlier this week for a version on August 20, and also confirmed that the Pixel 5 and a 5G-equipped 4A would arrive later this fall. . And while the 4A is an inexpensive device, between its better battery life, the lower frame design and an equally good main camera, you might actually prefer it to the regular Pixel 4. This is the conclusion that Dieter came up with in our review, saying “The Pixel 4A is a much more durable case per se than other Pixel phones.”
