Google has discontinued the popular Pixel 3a and 3a XL ahead of the arrival of the Pixel 4a. In a statement to Android Police, Google confirmed that it sold through its inventory and "completed sales" of the Pixel 3a series:
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.
If you're interested in picking up the Pixel 3a or 3a XL, now is your last chance. Both phones are available on Amazon right now, with the regular Pixel 3a on sale for $335 and the 3a XL available for $380.
In my long-term review of the Pixel 3a XL, I called it the best camera under $500 in 2020. Although there are plenty of new options in the market, the Pixel 3a continues to set the standard when it comes to the camera side of things. And the hardware itself has held up astonishingly well over the course of the last 12 months, with Google's software optimizations ensuring there's no lag in day-to-day use:
The Pixel 4a series is slated to debut sometime later this year, with the phone delayed several times already. If you're not willing to wait for the device to show up and are in the market for a mid-range phone, best act fast and get your hands on the Pixel 3a or 3a XL while they're still available.
A year after its debut, the Pixel 3a series continues to be a great option in the mid-range series. The hardware holds up just fine in 2020, and the camera is still the one to beat in this category. Combine that with clean software and regular updates and you get one of the best packages this segment has to offer.
