The Pixel 5 and 4a 5G May Arrive in Early October

Earlier this week Google announced that the Pixel 4a was coming to the UK, but not until 1st October. That has widely been regarded as a strange move, since it's hitting the US on 20th August, and people don't really want to wait that long to buy the phone for themselves.

Samsung Just Announced the Galaxy Z Flip 5G Early, for Some Reason
