Google has dropped the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones from its line-up, amid rumours the company is about to drop the budget Pixel 4a smartphone.
The Pixel 3, which was launched in October 2018, is no longer available to purchase from the official Google Store. The company is only offering the flagship Pixel 4 and the affordable Pixel 3a among its homegrown hardware.
The handset has been heavily discounted during recent sales events, so it’s hardly a surprise that the company has pulled the plug. The product page for the device now just redirects to the storefront (as spotted by Android Police).
This decision also mirrors the 18-month timeframe Google kept the Pixel 2 phones on sale for, and this appears to be the pattern Google attends to follow from now on.
