Google Discontinues the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL

In a statement provided to the Android Police, Google confirmed the discontinuation of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. The Pixel 3a and 3a XL will not be available to purchase from the Google Store, instead, the smartphones will only be available at the 3rd party retailers as remaining units sell-through.

“Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 3a. For people who are still interested in buying Pixel 3a, the product is available from some partners while supplies last,” said a Google spokesperson.

Currently, the official US Google Store listing of the Pixel 3a and 3a XL shows the smartphones as Out of Stock but the page is still accessible, unlike the older Pixel 3 series devices, which have been removed entirely.

To Recall, the Pixel 3a and the 3a XL were launched back in May 2019, and the Camera Performance of the smartphones is outstanding and is comparable with most of the flagships out there in the market, that too in a sub-$400 package. The smartphones gave other mid-range Android offerings a run for their money thanks to its superior camera quality, no-nonsense feature set, and fast updates from Google.

Both the smartphones were generally much better received than the flagship Pixel 3 and the 3 XL that preceded it because of the strong value it presented.

The successor to the Pixel 3a, the Pixel 4a’s launch was postponed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and we are yet to get a new date. Smartphones will carry on the same legacy of offering a clean interface and a great camera experience at an affordable price. Some rumors suggest that the Pixel 4a could launch as early as this month to as late as October.

One could take the discontinuation of the Pixel 3a as a hint towards the Pixel 4a launch being imminent, but we’d wait for an official word.

According to some leaks, the Google Pixel 4a could be priced at $349 with 128GB of storage, available in a single size. Earlier rumors said the Pixel 4a would launch at $399 with 64GB of storage, but Google likely decided to offer more storage at a lower price in the wake of Apple’s highly-regarded iPhone SE reboot.
