Google's latest Pixel-series flagship had been released for pre-orders in France, Germany, Ireland and the UK until October 15, 2020. However, this option is now no longer actionable in either of these countries. Similarly, if you are in these nations and want a 4a (5G), you have to join a wait-list.

Google launched its first flagship smartphone with 5G, the Pixel 5, on September 30, 2020, along with a new version of the 4a with the same connectivity. However, it seems interested consumers in some countries where the former is already available to pre-order are out of luck already.

The new Snapdragon 765G-powered phone is indeed now listed as out of stock on the French, German, Irish and British versions of Google's online Store. Similarly, the Pixel 4a (5G) is not yet a valid purchase on these platforms. This is a shame, particularly as the OEM had been offering a free pair of Bose QC35 II earphones with this new range in all of these countries.

The offer applies to the Pixel 5 and 4a (5G) in the UK and Ireland, and to the 5 alone in Germany and France. It expires on October 14, 2020 in the latter 2 countries and on October 19 in the first 2. Meanwhile, the 5 can still be pre-ordered against its October 29 release in the US and Canada - however, this only applies to unlocked units and not those on the Google Fi network.
