The Google Pixel 4a’s launch may have come later than expected due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the late launch doesn’t seem to have diminished excitement for the new mid-range Pixel phone. In the last 24 hours, Google’s new smartphone has shuffled between the #1 and #2 spot for the best-selling unlocked smartphone on both Amazon and Best Buy in the U.S.
In fact, due to its apparent popularity, the Pixel 4a is currently sold out on Amazon. The device is still available at Best Buy, however, and you can also find it on the Google Store. There’s no shortage of options to buy the phone, is what I’m trying to say.
Last year’s Pixel 3a was also a hit among consumers, so it’s no surprise Google’s latest mid-range smartphone is already selling well. It also underscores how important affordable devices like the Pixel 4a are for the market. Not everyone can afford upwards of $999 for a flagship device.
The Pixel 4a offers a high-end experience at an affordable price. You get a 5.81-inch OLED display, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, 6GB of RAM, 3,140mAh battery, 128GB of storage, and Google’s industry-leading camera software.
With Google discontinuing the Pixel 4, the Pixel 4a is currently the only smartphone the search giant offers. But it won’t stay that way for long. Google has already said the Pixel 5 will arrive this fall along with a 5G version of the 4a.
