Google has discontinued its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL flagships merely 9 months after their launch. Unveiled in October last year, the Pixel 4 pair is now out of stock on the Google Store in the US, shortly after the company announced that its successor – the Pixel 5 – will debut in the fall season. 

“Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 4|4XL. For people who are still interested in buying Pixel 4|4XL, 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 3 years from when the device first became available on the Google Store in the US,” a Google spokesperson was quoted as saying by 9to5Google

The international Google Store listings still show that some Pixel 4 stock is there in the inventory and third-party retailers might also have a few units left, but that is expected to deplete soon and won’t be replenished. However, it is surprising to see Google discontinuing a phone whose successor is still months away from launch. 

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
