Given Google’s big marketing push, it was expected its Pixel phones would achieve some lofty initial sales figures; judging by the estimated delivery times of the phones in the Google Play Store, they appear to have done just that.
The limited edition ‘very blue’ Pixel model sold out quickly and now both the 32GB black and silver versions have an estimated delivery time of 4-5 weeks with standard shipping. Meanwhile, the Pixel XL, the larger of the two devices, is completely out of stock in all variants with no indication as to when they will be available again.
No doubt the Pixel and Pixel XL stock will be replenished in time for the holiday season.
Still, you might be lucky to get the one you want before December Update: Verizon Wireless appears to have the full Pixel range still in stock. You can pre-order the Pixel or Pixel XL in any color for delivery by October 20 direct from the Verizon website.
Google’s new Pixel phones replace the Nexus series as the search giant’s home-grown handsets. Featuring Android Nougat out-of-the-box, the new flagships – built in partnership with HTC – also arrive with Google’s new digital assistant and what could be the finest smartphone camera ever.
