For those with plans to visit their nearest Verizon Wireless outlet to go get themselves a 128 gigabyte edition of Google’s Pixel XL smartphone, you might be out of luck. Jeffrey Nelson, a member of the Big Red’s communications team, has just revealed through a tweet that the initial supplies of the 128 gigabyte Pixel XL has already been sold out, which means interested buyers will probably not be able to purchase one at Verizon retail outlets right now. As indicated on Verizon’s official website, shipping estimates for this particular configuration of the Pixel XL has been moved to November 18th of this year. Bummer.
Still, customers can actually get a 128 gigabyte device because the smaller Pixel is still available, but then they will have to be content with a 5 inch display screen (the Pixel XL sports a 5.5 inch display screen). If they really want a Pixel XL, they can still get one but with lesser memory, i.e. the 32 gigabyte edition. The smaller Pixel basically sports the same specifications as the bigger Pixel XL, except that its display screen is only at 1,080 pixel resolution.
At Google’s online store, the Pixel XL also appears to be sold out, although it might be wise to also check out the nearest Best Buy just to be sure. But note that at Best Buy’s official website, only the 32 gigabyte Pixel devices are shown, which means that it might really be difficult to find any 128 gigabyte edition anywhere.
Quite interestingly, another phablet, the iPhone 7 Plus, also had availability concerns when it first launched. Indeed, a little more than a month ago, Apple had announced that the bigger iPhone 7 model had already sold out just a few days before it was set to launch worldwide. Even today, the device is still hard to find, especially in particular configurations and color options.
The Google Pixel starts at $649, or $27 a month, for the base model. For editions with more expansive memory configurations, they will likely cost the buyer an extra $100. As for the bigger Google Pixel XL device, its pricing starts at $769 for the 32 gigabyte edition. For the 128 gigabyte edition, the pricing increases to $869. Verizon Wireless is the exclusive wireless carrier selling both devices in the United States mobile market, although customers are free to buy them directly from Google unlocked.
