According to Jon Prosser of FrontPageTech, the Google Pixel 5 may actually be delayed. Originally, the launch was scheduled for May, postponed for June, and now it's been postponed again, Prosser claims. The smartphone is expected to come in two colour options - "Just Black" and "Barely Blue" colours.

He has also said that the upcoming phone will not come with 5G support. The phone is reportedly ready to launch, but Google delayed it due to the current market conditions.

Last year's Pixel 3a and 3a XL are available at some pretty hefty discounts with absolutely no strings attached for the umpteenth time, with the smaller 5.6-inch model fetching 120 bucks less than its usual price of $399. We're talking both monthly security patches and Android version promotions up to 12 after a Pie-flavored commercial debut.

Sure, the 3a isn't the hottest midrange device anymore, but it packs a punch in its affordable price: a camera in the same league as the regular Pixel 3, a fast and clean Android experience, and the promise of fast updates. And it could also be pushed back even further. But Google had to cancel the 2020 event, and rumors began to crop up suggesting that the release date had been moved to June.

But what if you'd rather have the larger Pixel 3a XL, which has the same great performance, camera and processor, but a bigger 6-inch display and higher-capacity battery?
