  • Google revolutionizes phone hygiene with Screen Cleaner a smart feature that fights dirt and smudges

Recent rumours suggest the incoming handsets could cost half as much as their flagship siblings, with the so-called Pixel 3a set to fetch around €450 (around £380) when it arrives in May.

Google is no longer selling its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones through its online store, with the listings for the devices removed from the platform. Also, the pricing leak of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL suggest that they will cost between $499 and $599 in the US, depending on which model you pick up, so keeping both the Pixel 2 range and the cheaper Pixel 3 one available for purchase might result in deleterious sales for one lineup, and Google seems to be in no mood to suffer losses from its hardware division at this stage.

Customers can still purchase the devices from third-party retailers while stock remains available, however.

The company rolled out the Pixel 2 and 2 XL in October 2017.

Even though the Pixel 2 only launched less than two years ago, the discontinuance is not unusual for Google.

Pixel software support is known to last so for those of you with Pixel 2s in your pocket, you can rest assured that your phone will remain up to date with the newest version of Android for at least another year.

This leaves Google without an entry-level phone in its store.

The decision to discontinue the Pixel 2 lineup is hardly surprising. That's unlikely to be the Pixel 4 this early in the development process, so many have speculated it's the mid-range Pixel 3 model.
