The Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are no longer available for purchase in markets like the US and Canada. While reports have revealed that Google will not be launching the Pixel 4a XL, the unavailability of the Pixel 3a series suggests that the Pixel 4a’s launch could be around the corner.
However, the arrival of the phone has been considerably delayed, since it was initially expected to go official in May. According to a new report on 9to5Google, a listing for the Pixel 4a appeared on the Google Store in Canada. The listing that has since been taken down revealed an official render of the device, that showcased the front and rear design.
