After having appeared in multiple leaks and renders, it seems the Google Pixel 5a has been canceled, according to a new report.
Update 10:40am: Google has given a statement confirming the Pixel 5a will not be cancelled, denying earlier reports.
Original: For the past two years, Google has released a mid-range alternative to their flagship Pixel phone, with the Pixel 3a and Pixel 4a. This year, we had been gearing up for a Google Pixel 5a to be released sometime this summer, with renders having appeared on the scene and tweaks to the design revealed by the Google Camera app.
However, according to a report from Android Central, who cites two independent sources, it seems Google has decided to not go forward with the release of the Pixel 5a. The decision comes as the smartphone market is dealing with an ongoing chip shortage that has Qualcomm unable to meet demands and may cause Samsung to skip releasing a Galaxy Note in 2
