The Pixel 4a (5G) is now available to pre-order in some European countries
Google has made Pixel 4a (5G) pre-orders live in France, Germany, Ireland and the UK. They are about €499 (~US$589, with some variation per market) or £499 (~$653) in their new markets. However, they are also eligible for the offer of a free pair of Bose QuietComfort 35 IIs per order as the Pixel 5.
This promotion runs from November 5 (today) to 18, 2020, and is subject to limited stock. A buyer will need to follow the instructions on this page in order to avail of their potential new headphones.
At the time of writing, the Pixel 4a (5G) appears to be in stock and has working pre-order buttons on all 4 regional Google Store websites. However, there is no mention of a shipping date for the devices.
However, its chassis is polycarbonate, meaning it may be a little less durable than that higher-end aluminium phone. Then again, it has yet to exhibit the screen-peeling hardware issues as the new Google flagship.
