Google recently unveiled the Pixel 5a smartphone and announced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagships, which are expected to be fully unveiled this fall. At the same time, the manufacturer quietly removed two old models from production.
More precisely, not quite old models – we are talking about the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 smartphones, which debuted less than a year ago. A Google spokesman confirmed to Digital Trends that the Google Store is already selling off stock of these models, after which they will disappear from the range.
“Based on our current projections, we expect the US Google Store to sell the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 in the coming weeks following the launch of the Pixel 5a (5G). The Pixel 5a (5G) is a great customer option, offering valuable hardware upgrades over the Pixel 4a (5G) at a lower price point,” a Google spokesperson said.
This will also apply to markets outside of the US, where Google officially sells Pixel phones, according to the report.
At the same time, the regular Pixel 4a will remain on sale as a low-cost entry-level model.
