An already deleted sentence from a post on the Google France blog suggests that the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G will be available for pre-order on October 8. The two phones were announced this week along with the Pixel 4A (which is now available for pre-order), but Google has yet to share official pre-order dates for the phones, saying only “this fall is coming.”
The inadvertent leak was reported by 9to5Google, after a reader noticed the pre-order date for the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G mentioned in the official post of Pixel 4A by Google France. The reference has since been deleted from the post (although it can be seen on the cached page) with the Google offer 9to5Google there is no further comment on the matter.
This is a fleeting expiration and may be a mistake, but pre-ordering on October 8 makes sense. Google regularly announces new hardware in October, giving us Pixel 4 on October 15, 2019, Pixel 3 on October 9, 2018 and Pixel 2 on October 4, 2017. There is no reason to think that the company will simply change this model. . as the delay of the Pixel 4A prompted it to announce the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G early. And to limit everything, an unrelated set of leaked documents from Google too noticed by 9to5Google notes that the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A 5G are scheduled to launch in October.
In other words, if the mid-range Pixel 4A isn’t enough for you, you only have a few months to wait to find out more about the higher range of Pixel 5 and 5G-capable 4As.
