Google Pixel 4a now comes in a limited edition Barely Blue color
Just in time for the holidays, Google has unveiled the Pixel 4a is now available in Barely Blue. But act fast, because once supply is gone, that’s it.
Available exclusively from Google, the limited edition color costs $349 in the U.S., the same price as the Just Black version that was released in August. Other than the color, there’s nothing new about the Pixel 4a in Barely Blue; the specs are the same.
Before its launch, the Pixel 4a was actually rumored to come in the newly unveiled Barely Blue, but the phone only launched in a Just Black. At the time, rumors suggested Google was unable to procure enough manufacturing capacity for this Barely Blue color. The inability to procure manufacturing capacity could be why the new color is a limited edition.

Announced at the beginning of August, the Pixel 4a is a mid-range device that features a 5.81-inch OLED display, Snapdragon 730G processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3140mAh battery. The device also features a single 12MP camera and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. For the price, it’s a solid smartphone, and it looks even better in Google’s new Barely Blue.
Since the Pixel 4a was released, Google has launched the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, which retail in the U.S. for $699 and $499, respectively. The Pixel 4a in Barely Blue is unique among Google’s lineup, and its limited-edition nature makes it even more coveted.
