i am hearing that google has delayed the pixel 6a until late july. (chip shortage)
pixel watch is still may 26th, but the source believes it could soon be pushed as well.https://t.co/iqoh9RlCzk
The Pixel 3a, on the other hand, was launched in May. So whether intentional or not, it seems like the launch schedule has had a semi-permanent shift to the summer months.
The Pixel Watch is still set for a May launch, but this too could be pushed back.
The Watch is also tipped to feature a custom chip created by Samsung, so it's easy to imagine similar issues with supply.
Given the recently leaked Pixel 6a benchmarks, we felt that the launch might be imminent, so this is certainly disappointing news for those looking to upgrade.
