Pixel XL now back in stock at Google Store
posted by Florin T. / Dec 12, 2016, 9:15 PM
Not long after restocking the Really Blue Pixel in Google Store, Google today also made the Pixel XL available again in the US. While you can order the Pixel XL in all three color variants (black, silver, blue), only the 32 GB model is currently available from Google Store. The 128 GB model is still out of stock, and we don't know when it will be back.
Google says that the blue Pixel XL 32 GB is shipping in 2-3 weeks, while the black and silver versions are shipping in 4-5 weeks. This means that, if you're placing an order today, your Pixel XL will likely arrive after the holidays (though Google sometimes can ship phones earlier than expected).
Both the Pixel and Pixel XL are seemingly way more popular than Google had anticipated. It's unclear for how long the Pixel XL will be in stock, thus, if you really need the handset (unlocked), you should hurry up and order it. Of course, you could also get a Pixel XL via Verizon, though VZW is also struggling to keep up with demand.

I had no idea this phone would be that popular, especially their 128gb model. Plus, and on a separate note, the ugly design has really grown on me! I love my Regular sized Pixel. The 32GB option at the expense of NO 64GB is a major cheap shot by Google though.

It's not popular. "It's a marketing strategy"

Not only that. A company will only produce so many phones as to not overshoot demand. I saw it in the store and my friend who loves iphone was saying how she likes it because it looks like iphone just without the home button.

The XL is the powerhouse but the regular pixel is the winner in my book. Love the pixel and it complements my 7plus very well

I honestly had no hope for this phone. Like others mentoined,its design is somewhat unappealing, and the pixel branding is completely new,but Google out did themselves in the strong advertisement, even adding it to web search site. I have no plans if getting one as it lacks some features I want,put I'm thankful for it as more people will be aware of android and also other manufacturers will have to step up their game even higher in order to compete with the pixel.

Unlike the Nexus launches of the 4 and 5 which had a limited amount of phones available at launch with very little publicity by Google, this phone was supposed to be the iPhone killer. Instead, it's mistake made by Google by not building sufficient stock to keep people interested. I wanted the Pixel XL in the 128GB version. But after waiting 10-weeks since it was announced, the fire is lost and I'm going to hold off until Samsung and/or LG release their S8 or G6 phones.
