Google will be hosting a special event on September 30 wherein the company is expected to launch the Pixel 5 5G and Pixel 4a 5G smartphones. Now, word is that Pixel 5 5G smartphone will not be arriving on September 30. Instead, the phone will be arriving in October.

Coming to the 5G variant of the Pixel 4a smartphone, the tipster says that the Just Black colour variant of the phone will also be available on pre-orders starting September 30. However, it will go on sale on November 19. And far the Clearly White variant of the Pixel 4a 5G is concerned, the availability of this variant has been delayed until 2021. The tipster also says that it is possible that Google will cancel the Clearly White colour variant of the phone altogether, which means that the Pixel 4a 5G will be available in a single colour variant.
