Google revamped its line of smartphones in 2020, and part of that was releasing a new third tier of Pixel phones between the budget “ a ” series and flagship offerings. The Pixel 4a 5G ended up being the best of Google’s three 2020 phones, and a new color is now available for anyone who buys the unlocked phone.
There are technically two versions of the Pixel 4a 5G, the $ 499 model with only 5G low band support which is sold unlocked (through the Google Store, Amazon, Google Fi, etc.), and the Pixel 4a 5G. UW at $ 599 with one kilometer. 5G wave sold by Verizon. The unlocked model was only available in ‘Just Black’, but anyone who bought the UW version had an additional ‘Clearly White’ color option.
Google confirmed to The Verge that the color white will be available soon for the unlocked 4a 5G, with delivery scheduled to begin on January 28. It will have the same white casing and green power button as the Verizon model, but the same sub-6 GHz 5G support that we find in other unlocked models.
Unfortunately, the new color does not appear to be available for purchase yet. B&H Photo had a product listing, but it was taken down shortly after The Verge noticed it.
