Despite launching today, global fans face an extended wait for the Pixel 4a. But when can you expect to be able to buy the Pixel 4a in your country?

After an agonizing wait, you’re just going to have to hold out a little longer for the affordable Android phone as Google has opted for another staggered launch of the Pixel 4a in global markets. This follows the Google Pixel Buds, which were launched in the United States in early April before heading out to wider markets in mid-July.

Without a keynote or any properly detailed information, we’ve done our best to better work out just when you’ll see the Pixel 4a hit shelves in your local region. We do know that the device will be available in the United States on August 20 — with pre-orders open now on Amazon, Best Buy, and the Google Store.

Those of us in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Singapore, and Spain will be waiting eagerly to get our mitts on the enticing affordable Android phone. Here’s exactly when you’ll be able to pre-order the Google Pixel 4a in your global market:
