If you have a Pixel 2-shaped hole in your heart then you’d best be prepared to wait. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are already showing out of stock warnings on most models.
The Google Pixel 2 is easier to get – in most configurations it will ship by October 17 though some color and storage configurations will ship in 5 to 6 weeks although that estimate could be pushed further back.
The more desirable of the two – the Google Pixel 2 XL – can ship in 2 to 3 weeks in a best case scenario if you really don’t care for a specific memory/color combo and you are in the US. Waiting 5 to 6 weeks is the least you can get in Europe or if you want a bit wider selection of options. Worse still, some configurations are already showing as shipping in December and other are already listed as out of stock.
This is the story on all of Google’s launches so it hardly a surprise. Google still has a tough time keeping the original Pixel and Pixel XL in stock, a year after their release.
And by the way if you live in the States and want to get a Verizon device things are even worse – shortest waiting period is 4 to 5 weeks, while the Black and White Pixel 2 XL is completely unavailable. You can check the Play Store links below for more details.
