Pixel 2 replaced the original Google Pixel in October 2017, but was sold for another six months to encourage consumers to look for a more cost-effective option. Google followed a similar strategy with last year's introduction of the Pixel 3 series, deciding not to roll out Pixel 2 until the beginning of April. But with Pixel 4 just around the corner Google will change its strategy.
Tipster Ishan Agarwal has tweeted a picture he has compared Any cell phone in Google's updated 2019 pixel lineup. In addition to the Pixel 3a series, the photo also contains the upcoming Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, but the Pixel 3 flagship ships are not mentioned in the end. This suggests that Google will stop using its devices for 2018 as soon as its successors arrive on Tuesday.
Google has never decided to continue selling its older flagships. However, this step makes perfect sense this year. In early May, the Silicon Valley-based company introduced the Pixel 3a family of products, which offers most of Pixel 3's features, including key cameras, at a lower cost. Poor sales of the brand's flagship brands have also forced the company to permanently lower the price of Pixel 3 by $ 300, which is only $ 100 over the Pixel 3a series, a strategy that Google is unlikely to be very profitable is.
