Now, a new tweet from tipster Jon Prosser claims that the launch has been delayed again, and the phone may not launch until July. According to Prosser, the Pixel 4a will be available in two colours (Just Black and Barely Blue) and will not support 5G.

Tweet Claims Pixel 4a Launch Delayed Again: Possible Launch in July with Two Colours & No 5G Support
What the tweet claims
According to the tweet, the Pixel 4a launch has been delayed again, and it is now expected to launch in July. The tweet also claims that the phone will be available in two colours (black and white), and that it will not have 5G support.
Why the launch may be delayed
The Pixel 4a launch may be delayed again due to several reasons. Firstly, the global pandemic has caused many production and supply chain disruptions, which could have impacted the production of the Pixel 4a. Secondly, Google may be facing difficulties in obtaining the necessary components for the phone, such as the OLED display. Lastly, the company may be waiting for 5G network coverage to improve before launching the 5G-enabled Pixel 4a.
What colours the Pixel 4a may come in
The Pixel 4a has been rumored to be delayed multiple times, and the most recent rumor claims that it may not launch until July. However, this latest rumor also claims that the Pixel 4a will come in two colours – black and white – and that there will be no 5G support.
If the Pixel 4a does launch in July, it would likely be due to production delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic. However, it’s possible that the delay is also due to Google wanting to launch the phone alongside the Pixel 5.
As for the colours, it’s not surprising that the Pixel 4a would come in black and white. These are the most popular colours for smartphones, and they would allow Google to keep costs down by not having to produce multiple colour variants.
The lack of 5G support is a bit more surprising, but it’s possible that Google is waiting to launch a 5G version of the Pixel 4a later on. This would make sense from a marketing standpoint, as it would allow Google to sell the Pixel 4a as a budget-friendly option for those who don’t need 5G.
Whether or not the Pixel 4a will have 5G support
The report claims that the Pixel 4a will not have 5G support, which would be a disappointment for many who were hoping for the next-gen connectivity. This is unconfirmed, however, and we’ll have to wait until closer to the launch to know for sure.
