Google has announced that the two flagship phones, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, have been discontinued. Launched in October last year, the company is currently listed as “sold out” in Google’s U.S. online marketplace, though there may be a small amount of inventory in other markets.
A Google spokesman confirmed to The Verge: “The inventory of the Pixel 4/4 XL in the Google Store has been cleared. For those who are still interested in buying both phones, they can still be obtained through some of our partners, but we will not restock them later. Like all Pixel devices, the Pixel 4 will continue to receive software and security updates, at least three years from when the device was first sold on google stores in the US. “
It is unusual for Google to discontinue a Pixel phone so quickly that the Pixel 2/3 Series will be available for 18 months and will usually not be discontinued until six months after its successor’s release. That could mean that Google will not have a flagship model on sale before the Pixel 5 goes on sale.
