There is no successor yet, but Google is already pulling the plug on the Pixel 5. Now only remnants of the cell phone are sent for sale. The Pixel 4a 5G is also affected, as the manufacturer has now confirmed.
Google Pixel 5 lands on the rest ramp
If you want to buy a Pixel 5 now, you shouldn't wait long. Google has officially confirmed that the phone has been discontinued. Only remnants are currently available in the company's own Google Store and from partners. Only the "Just Black" variant is currently available in the German store. How long it will stay that way is unclear. Google does not offer a reduced price.
In addition to the Pixel 5, Google is also saying goodbye to the Pixel 4a 5G. But there is an important difference here , because Google has only discontinued the cell phone in the USA so far. The successor, the Pixel 5a, has been available there since August 17th. Google does not want to sell the smartphone in Europe.
With the Pixel 4a 5G , those interested in this country still have some time if they want to decide on the mobile phone. The Pixel 4a 5G will not be available for a long time.
