Google’s first 5G-enabled phones, Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5, will be available this fall at a starting price of $499, the Alphabet Inc unit said on Monday.
The company also cut the starting price for its smartphone lineup with a non-5G version of 4a priced at $349, looking to broaden its appeal among budget-conscious customers.
Google’s lower-priced devices have been top sellers, but are far from being major profit drivers.
Google’s non-5G Pixel 4a will start $50 lower than what was previously the cheapest Pixel phone available, the 3a, which is being retired.
The 5G models will be available in the United States, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan and Australia, Google said.
