Google has removed its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones from its official website. This means that the company will no longer sell these devices. We even checked Google India’s online store, and the Pixel 3 series is actually missing. The India website is only showing the Pixel 3a device. However, if you are interested in buying, you can get it via Flipkart. Both the devices are still listed on this e-commerce website.

A Google spokesperson confirmed to Android Police that the search giant has ceased sales of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Also, even if you find the landing page of these third-generation Pixel phones, you won’t get one as they are out of stock. In April 2019, Google removed the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL from its official online store. So, it seems that the timing is about right.

Besides, Google is soon expected to launch its new Pixel 4a series. Rumors claim that the upcoming Pixel phones will debut in May this year. Ahead of the official launch, earlier this month, Google reportedly revealed the price of the smartphone. The search giant also teased the design of the phone with a billboard in a public place. The Google Pixel 4a will come with a starting price of $400 (approximately Rs 29,660). Also Read - Google introduces Android Performance Tuner and other tools for developers
For the same price, Google launched its Pixel 3a smartphone last year. The different teasers showed that the Google Pixel 4a will have a single punch-hole display design. There will be only one camera at the back panel, which will be assisted by an LED flash. The handset won’t offer an in-display fingerprint sensor or a side-mounted one. The company has instead added the fingerprint scanner at the back panel of the Pixel 4a. It will be available in at least two color options, including black and white.
