Why did Google DELAY the Pixel 4a to July?

by birtanpublished on August 18, 2020

First it was May than June and now July so why is Google delayed launched with the pixel for a yet again and what does it mean for the phone and the rest of Google's pixel lineup so last we heard pixel for a was due to break cover at the android 11 beta event on June 3rd

However the latest information from noted Apple / Google leakage on Prosser points to a mid July release instead it since been confirmed by Android police's David Roddick so pretty much this is happening and the reason given here

Makes sense it's economical not technological there doesn't seem to be any issue with the pixel for Ace Hardware nor is software there probably isn't any problem with performance or some radio configuration and we weren't

Really expecting 5g in this model anyway you'll have to wait a little longer for the pixel 5 to see Google's first 5g phone what Prosser points out makes complete sense the phone's ready to go physically but this just isn't a great

Time to launch a new device from a business perspective early impressions of phones based on early sales do matter and now is just a bad time to try and rack up those early sales US consumer spending in March was down 7.5%

According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis which is a huge shift most months the changes in fractions of a percent April or May likely to be even worse as lockdowns start to bite the effects on discretionary purchases like

New phones have been hit as people look more critically at a very uncertain financial future for the time being most of the Western world is still locked down and though restrictions are starting to be eased in some places the

Economic picture in early June is unlikely to look drastically different from today in a bit of coincidental news rumors point to Amazon pushing back its annual prime day event from July to September the online retail behemoth

Clearly sees it as a bad idea to try and price open consumers wallets for non-essential or even frivolous purchases anytime soon even though the four a is the inexpensive pixel which helps Google in this case it still isn't

The best retail environment to be selling anything that's gonna cost around 350 dollars and in all likelihood replace the perfectly good working phone that you already giving the world in general and the u.s.

In particular time to rebound economically before launching a new phone makes sense Google's hardware business is in consequentially small compared to the company's bottom line

So unlike Apple's new iPhone se there's really no scramble to get the pixel for it out early to start making money on its to put it simply Google can afford to wait another month or so after all the optics of a slow launch would in

Many ways be more damaging than me a month of lost sales on the balance sheet and that's especially true in light of recent reports suggesting last year's pixel 4 was a retail flop indeed Google seems to be realigning its entire pixel

Phone line around much more budget-conscious price points this year a recent Google survey appears to corroborate details from 9 to 5 Google suggesting a highly competitive $350 price point for the 128 gigabyte for a

And just 699 for the base model the pixel v bat model is reported to be saving money by using a mid to high tier snapdragon 765 processor instead of the usual eight series all of which would see Google basically withdrawal from the

Super premium flagship segment altogether and that might actually fit pretty well into a newly thrifty consumer landscape at the moment though Google still sells discounted pixel 3/8 which fills the gap for people who want

A budget focused phone and have a pixel in mind and for the rest of us who care enough to know the pixel for a is on the horizon we can probably handle waiting just a little bit longer that's it for now let us know what you think of the

Apparent pixel for a delay down in the comments are you gonna wait around for the July launch or would you be tempted to jump ship to the competition finally be sure to subscribe so you don't miss our first proper look at the pixel for a

When it does arrive thanks for watching and I'll see you next time
