The Google Pixel 4 and 4XL are on sale for $300 off

Google’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL are on sale this week and have been significantly discounted

It’s no secret that Google’s budget phone, the Pixel 4a, will be releasing sometime soon. But for some reason, both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL are currently on sale. The price for both Pixel phones have been slashed by $300 off.

The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL first came out in October of 2019. Both are equipped with very capable specs and, true to the Pixel’s reputation, a very good camera system. It seems that despite the glowing specs of the Pixel 4 and 4XL, one of the major criticisms was that the devices were overpriced. Costing $899 and $999 respectively, both phones carry a Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. They also have a 90Hz screen and, of course, the latest Android software.

Best Buy has now slashed the price for both phones on their site with the 6.3-inch Pixel 4XL priced at $699 for the 128GB variant and the 5.7-inch Pixel 4 for $599. The 64GB variants are even cheaper at $599 for the Pixel 4XL and $499 for the Pixel 4. The large decrease in its price makes it almost silly to buy the upcoming budget Pixel 4a, which is rumored to retail around $399.

And while no official specs have been released for the incoming Pixel 4a, a number and leaks have already surfaced. From these reports, we can presume that the Pixel 4a will have an all-plastic body housing a 5.81-inch display, Snapdragon 730, up to 128GB storage, 4GB of RAM, a single 12.2MP rear camera, and an 8MP selfie camera. When compared to the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL, there are slight differences that, in different circumstances, would be a good thing. But at the current price the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4XL are at, it may prove difficult to justify buying the new Pixel 4a.
