Google is running on the last set of units for the Pixel 3a series. The company has reportedly discontinued the first Pixel a series. This was confirmed by Google spokesperson, quoted by Android Police this week. If you head over to Google’s device store in the US, you will see the phone is listed out of stock. However, in India, the phone is still available but in limited regions. Also Read - Gmail goes down for many Indian users, other Google services also reporting issues
“Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 3a. For people who are still interested in buying Pixel 3a, the product is available from some partners while supplies last, said the spokesperson in this report.

While discontinuing the Pixel 3 series made sense, we’re not sure if taking off Pixel 3a is a sensible move. After all, we’re yet to see the Pixel 4a launching in the market. And even though the phone has been production-ready, FCC certified for a while now, Google still hasn’t given us a confirmed launch date for the product.
Reports have pointed out Pixel 4a could either debut in July or come as late as October this year. Which puts it alongside the Pixel 5 series. But with Pixel 3a going out of stock, we’re hoping it’s the former.
