Google announces a Barely Blue limited edition version of the Pixel 4a
Google has had a somewhat pared-back yea, having opted against releasing a smartphone with a flagship SoC. Nonetheless, it has now unveiled a new colour option of the Pixel 4a, having dropped some heavy hints on its Instagram account over the weekend. The new colour is called Barely Blue, and appears to be the colour that two French retailers listed in June. There are some major caveats to its release, though.
For the time being, the Barely Blue model will only be available in the US. Android Authority claims that Google will begin selling the Barely Blue Pixel 4a in Japan from early 2021. However, Google will also only sell it as an unlocked handset.
Finally, the Barely Blue edition will only be available while stocks last. Apparently, there will be no restocks once it sells out. Google has priced the new colour option at US$349 but has not indicated how many units it has produced.
