Whenever a smartphone is launched, it is usually expected to be sold officially at least for one year but Google has done something unexpected. It has officially announced the discontinuation of Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The statement was given to The Verge where it revealed that the flagship sales have been completed.
This is the reason both Pixel 4 series models are listed as out of stock on the Google Store. The only way of buying these devices is to visit third-party stores and see if they have any stock left. Google has also mentioned the same thing where it said both phones can still be purchased while stocks last at other online and offline stores.
In an official statement, Google 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.”
There is no doubt that the sale has been stopped earlier than usual but we are also closer to the next-gen flagship release. Google has already confirmed that Pixel 5 will be a 5G compatible smartphone and will arrive later this year. A recent report claimed that it will go on pre-orders starting October 8th which is just two months away. If you are looking for a cheaper option, the Pixel 4a has been released recently and is available for purchase.
