Android11 will be out somewhere in Sept/Oct 2020. Pixel phones get Android OS updates immediately after its release. So, If at all, Google plans to launch Pixel 4a in Oct 2020, it should come with Android 11 pre-installed and not Android10. Of course, as per Google policy, they will have to give 2-3 more OS updates to their Pixel phones.
This will have following impact:
- Iphone SE 2020 gets enough time to mint money in the segment of affordable compact phones.
- One+8 siblings will gain market share ( specially in India)
- Pixel4a and if Pixel 5 launches at same time in October 2020, will have least competition in the mid range segment ( provided one+8T siblings are not increasing their price tag)
And if Xiaomi releases MiA4 as Android One phone by learning from A3 mistakes, then it will make its impact on sales of Pixels.

Anonymous, 16 Jun 2020I like your nickname. Do you spin ?Hi thanks. I thought of this name a long time ago, but I did eventually become a drum and bass dj and eventually do some gigs as well. It ended abruptly when I took a job in a city with no drum and bass scene.

Google will cancel the 4A and release the two midrange phones, Pixel 5/5XL by October.

What's wrong with Google
... do you even want to release the phone....
...which one is delay after delay...
Why hasn't even one considered that Google is delaying the Pixel 4a to launch it with Android 11 out-of-the-box, maybe directly as Pixel 5a.
