Last month, Google launched its flagship Pixel 5 smartphone alongside the 5G variant of the affordable Pixel 4a device. Initially, the flagship Pixel smartphone made its way to Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, and Taiwan on October 15. In fact, the device got so popular that even the pre-booking numbers exceeded the available number of devices in warehouses. We’re talking about the UK, Ireland, and Germany specifically.
As scheduled, Google Pixel 5 has now made its way to the US and Canada regions. This means that you can now grab the smartphone in the two mentioned markets. The smartphone will set you back around $699 in the United States while it is priced at $799 CAD in Canada. You will be able to get your hands on the device on Google’s official website along with other popular retailers and e-commerce websites. To recall, Pixel 5a comes in two color options – Just Black and Subtle Sage.
The Pixel 4a 5G, on the other hand, is currently up for pre-order on Google USA for a $499 price tag. The affordable 5G phone will see its release in the states on November 19. With both the Google devices, you will be getting the company’s signature camera performance along with a stock Android experience with no bloatware at all.
