  • Google has discontinued the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.
  • The Pixel 4 series is the only smartphone range it sells now.
  • You can still buy the Pixel 3a series from third-party sellers.

Google’s mid-range smartphones from 2019 have completed their successful run and are now being put out to pasture. The company has confirmed that it’s discontinuing the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. The duo will no longer be available from the Google Store but will remain on sale through third-party platforms while stocks last.

In a statement to Android Police, a Google spokesperson said: “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.”

The statement came after the official Google Store listing for the Pixel 3a series started showing the status of the phones as “Unavailable.” It has since changed to “Out of Stock”, making it clear that Google is not parting with any more units of the affordable Pixels.

Google Pixel 3a discontinued: Now what?

The discontinuation of the Pixel 3a series marks the end of the entire Pixel 3 line. The flagship Pixel 3 and 3XL were discontinued in March this year. So currently, the only Google smartphones in play are the Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL. We’re hoping that the removal of the Pixel 3a line indicates the imminent arrival of the highly-anticipated Pixel 4a. However, no one seems to have a clue when Google will finally take the covers off that one.

The Pixel 4a has been delayed for many months and rumors predict that Google might only release it in October alongside the Pixel 5 series.
