When the first Google Pixel, a thought that is now alive. As time went on, it got kind of odd Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and then with the ugly cut. Next was extremely successful in all respects Pixel 3a, but later the time has come Pixel 4, is known for its problems with the battery. Now, when he released his budget version, it’s time to say goodbye and the company no longer produce this model, although it hasn’t even been half a year since the moment it went on sale. It is not strange, but rather natural. The company wants to turn the page and have even made it clear, when will the Google Pixel 5. So the separation cannot be called sad.
Soon it will be impossible to buy Google Pixel 4
The information that Google Pixel 4 and Pixel Google 4XL will never be official. Less than a year after their launch, the company disclaims them. Two flagship no longer available in the Google Store, and the company will no longer be replenished from the reserves.
However, if you really wanted to get this phone, you can look for it from third-party sellers who have not yet managed to sell the last batch. This may even make sense, because in the future Google Pixel 5 it will sell with good discounts to get rid of excess product. Although, I would have rather bought Google Pixel 4a.
A Google spokesperson made the following a statement to The Vergeconfirming the rejection of a whole generation of smartphones Pixel 4 and 4 XL.
The Google Store has sold all its reserves and has completed the sale of Pixel 4 and 4 XL. For people who still interested in purchasing Pixel 4 and 4 XLthe product is available from some partners. While it is available. As all devices Pixel Google Pixel 4 will continue to receive software updates and security within at least 3 years from the moment when the device first became available in the Google Store in the United States. — said the representative of the company.
How long available Google Pixel
A bit surprising, as the flagships of the Pixel 4 has gone from the shelves. For comparison, series Pixel 3 was discontinued almost a year and a half after its launch in October 2018. Even a series of Pixel 3a, which followed it, worked for a year before it was retired.
Now the closest phone from Google, which you’ll be able to buy, is Google Pixel 4a, which is already available in the US, and request dealers. The open sale of this smartphone will start on August 20. Will continue Google Pixel 5, in respect of which the company ”burned” the date of presentation — 8 October. Let me remind you that we expect and other new phones, including a ”clamshell”, but they will appear only next year. This is what I was told in a separate article.
Why Google Pixel 4 removed from production
Early withdrawal from production of the Pixel 4 and 4 XL can mean several things. The coming release of the fifth generation and I need to somehow warm up the market before the presentation. If you continue to sell the previous flagship, when the time comes, significantly less people will be willing to buy a new product.
It is also possible that two flagship Pixel 4 did not show a sufficient number of sales, and Google is just getting rid of them to focus the attention of consumers on your latest Pixel 4a of the middle class. Given the difference in cost of these two smartphones and an obvious problem flagship that many users complained last year, the choice is obvious.
In may even have appeared that key members of the team at Google has left the company. Many have connected it with the failure of the Google Pixel 4. Perhaps they were related, and delay the release of the new Google Pixel 4a that everyone was waiting for in April-may. This month, several other leaders of the team Pixel left their posts, but what are these suspension while it is impossible to tell.
Despite all the problems, you can not worry about Google. This is not the company which will suffer from falling sales of smartphones (possibly temporary). She has enough money that it earns on its other businesses, and it can afford to have a unit operating with a minimum profit.
However, she still has a great Google Pixel 4a, which will be a boon for those who wanted to buy a smartphone in about 300 — 400 dollars. While he will support the company’s sales, but we’ll see how it all goes.
I’d like to add that the Google Pixel is really cool. Last year I was in awe of the Google Pixel 3a. It is a pity that the geography of sales of the new products is so weak. Need to expand to other markets. Then sales will grow, and fans of the brand will be more. But companies know better.
