With the first couple of Pixel phones, Google struck a partnership with Verizon that made the big red carrier the only operator in the U.S. to sell Pixels. Things changed with the Pixel 3 and 3a, though, with T-Mobile and Sprint adding those models to their rosters. Now it sounds like the Pixel 4 may be even more widely available.
AT&T may sell the Pixel 4 when it launches. An email obtained by Phone Arena shows that AT&T is seeking an employee at each store that can be a sort of Pixel guru, likely so they can be knowledgeable about the device if customers ask about it. That suggests that AT&T will be selling Google's new Pixel 4 in its stores.
While still unofficial, it would make sense that AT&T would eventually sell a Google Pixel smartphone. The devices are already available on Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon, and so it might look strange to consumers if AT&T doesn't also have the device, and it could help prevent existing AT&T customers from switching to one of the other carriers for the Pixel 4. Plus, because many U.S. consumers still buy their phones from their carrier, having the Pixel 4 on AT&T means more exposure for Google and its brand new flagship.
Google is hosting an event for the Pixel 4 on October 15, so we should learn all about the new phone's availability and pricing then.
