For the first time ever, Amazon is directly selling one of Google’s Pixel phones — two of them, actually.
The leading online retailer has begun offering the Pixel 3A and 3A XL at their respective $399 and $479 price points.
These are “sold by Amazon.com,” not by a third-party Amazon seller, so free shipping for Prime members applies.
The end of Verizon’s exclusivity deal with Google led to other US carriers selling both the newer 3A handsets and the midcycle Pixel 3 devices.
Maybe Amazon decided that it didn’t make much sense to offer the flagship at a point when most people who would buy it, well, probably already have.
Amazon adding the Pixel 3A to its unlocked phone lineup is yet another sign of the improving relationship between itself and Google.
