Less than a year after unveiling and a month after 3a is discontinued
Google has discontinued its most recent flagships, the Pixel 4 and 4XL, according to The Verge, less than a year after unveiling them.
A Google spokesperson confirmed: “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.”
Both devices are currently out of stock on Google’s US store, but are still available from a variety of UK operators and retailers. However, the 4XL is not listed on Google’s UK store.
This marks the second device discontinuation this year from Google, after it discontinued the Pixel 3a a month ago.
Having discontinued the Pixel 2 and 3 both around 18 months after initial release, it means the only phone Google has in production at the moment is the Pixel 4a, which does not go on release until October.
However, Google has confirmed that a Pixel 5 will be launching later this year.
