It said it's completed sales, and that the phone would only be available from some partners "while supplies last". Google's superb Pixel 3A and 3A XL are now discontinued, as rumors of an imminent Pixel 4a launch swirl.

For the time being, retailers with stock will continue to sell the Pixel 3a, but when the devices have sold out you'll only be able to buy them second-hand.

Google's Pixel 4a has been "just around the corner" for a while now, but further certification means it could finally get showcased this month or August time.

Once the phones sell out, people looking for a great affordable handset will have to look elsewhere, perhaps at the iPhone SE (2020), Xiaomi Mi Note 10 or phones in the Samsung Galaxy A series - that is, unless Google launches the Pixel 4a very soon. Though, the 3a is still available at $349 on Amazon, in case you want to buy it. "For $399 or $479, the Pixel 3a delivers simply stellar photography, not to mention the best experience you're going to find in an Android phone this side of the Pixel 4". The Pixel 3a 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. Then, after finally being able to ramp up production, Google may have made a decision to delay the Pixel 4a's release again to avoid the recent slump in smartphones sales, which has seen smartphone sales drop by 20% worldwide.
