Google discontinues Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G in the US ahead of Pixel 6 series launch

Earlier this week, Google launched the Pixel 5a exclusively for two markets, namely the US and Japan. A few days from that, the company has now confirmed that it has discontinued the last year’s Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a in its home market.

According to a report by The Verge, a spokesperson has revealed that the search giant has discontinued the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a in the US. The phones will be sold out in the coming weeks, however, they could be available through some partners while supplies last.

On the other hand, the firm did not say anything about the Pixel 4a. This suggests the device will be on sale alongside the newly unveiled Pixel 5a .

The discontinuation of the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a makes sense. Because the latest Pixel 5a is identical to these handsets. The only major thing the new model lacks is wireless charging.

Having said that, is also set to launch the Pixel 6 series powered by an in-house chipset called Tensor this fall. The lineup has been confirmed to include two models, namely Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Apart from bringing a revamped design and new silicon, they will be also debuting multiple huge camera sensors.

Unfortunately, just like the Pixel 5a 5G, the availability of the Pixel 6 series is said to be limited to select regions. Hence, customers may have to wait a bit longer for the launch of Pixel smartphones in their countries. The last widely available Pixel phones were the Pixel 3A and the Pixel 3A XL.
