Google discontinues Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL ahead of Pixel 5 launch

Google introduced Pixel 4a earlier this week and also confirmed that Pixel 5 with 5G support will release later this year. Now the company has confirmed the discontinuation of the Pixel 4 series — Pixel 4 and 4 XL in less than a year of launch. Right now, both the smartphones are not available for sale in the official Google Store in the US. From now on, it will be available only through 3rd party retailers as remaining units sell-through.

The company has already confirmed that the Pixel 5 will not launch in India, so only the Pixel 4a will be coming to India in October.

In a statement to The Verge, Google spokesperson said:

Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 4 [and] 4 XL. For people who are still interested in buying Pixel 4 [and] 4 XL, the product is available from some partners while supplies last. Just like all Pixel devices, Pixel 4 will continue to get software and security updates for at least three years from when the device first became available on the Google Store in the US.
