Pixel 4a delay rumors spark up again, this time with allegations of a release late into 2020
The next generation of the more mid-range Google Pixel series and when it will launch exactly has been the subject of quite a lot of speculation all through this year. This is due to its potential role as a tipping point for its whole series, particularly in relation to its affordability, and, thus, its success.
The latest leak on this subject put the 4a's (already possibly delayed) debut at some time this month - June 2020. However, a new tip suggests that it may have been pushed back even further still. Jon Prosser claims to have heard that it will not launch until July now.
This leaker also alluded to various color options for the phone that apparently came up during his rumor-mining. They include Black and Barely Blue; however, the latter has now been "removed" as a SKU, whereas the latter may not be released until October 2020.
All these upheavals in the Pixel 4a's unveiling are described as related to market forces, not supply-chain disruptions. In other words, Prosser seems to believe there are factors besides the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic situation in the phone's continuing absence.
However, these new indications have been contradicted nearly in their entirety by another well-known leaker, Ishan Agarwal. This individual asserts that he has learned the collection of specs presently thought of as the 4a will not in fact be realized as a device of this name at all. They may, however, form part of the Pixel 5 series instead.
