It goes without saying that anything that is in high demand will obviously face limited stock at stores or wherever you would normally purchase it, assuming there are logistics and production issues involved. The 32GB Google Pixel XL happens to be one of those smartphones that has hit the sweet spots with consumers, but there was simply not enough stock to go around, which meant you would always see it listed down as unavailable or out of stock on the Google Store US. All of that has finally changed, with the 32GB Google Pixel XL being readily available for purchase from the Google Store US.
The Google Pixel XL happens to be one of the best Android-powered smartphones in the market, accompanied by the likes of its smaller sized sibling, the Google Pixel, of course. Both the Pixel XL as well as the Pixel were the first handsets that Google designed in terms of hardware as well as software. In the past, Google enlisted the likes of Motorola, Huawei, LG and HTC to deliver their Android-powered smartphones under the guise of the Nexus brand name. No longer with the Pixel XL and Pixel, which were both released just a few months back with much aplomb.
Needless to say, in any product range, there would be a sweet spot that appeals to most folks, and if that sweet spot of products is not properly identified, it could lead to a shortage in supply -- which was exactly what happened with the 32GB Google Pixel XL. Perhaps Google had anticipated a different sweet spot, but all of that is water under the bridge now as the 32GB Google Pixel XL is now available for purchase at the Google Store US. Another variant would be the Really Blue color of the Google Pixel which was not available in large quantities although it has been restocked since.
The larger sized Google Pixel XL (which you can easily tell by its name) is now available readily, where you can choose the 32GB variant from Quite Black, Really Blue and Very Silver color variants. Those who feel that 32GB is not quite right up their alley and would prefer something with a higher storage capacity, you’re out of luck -- for the moment, that is. The 128GB Google Pixel XL remains out of stock, and we do hope that this situation will be remedied sooner rather than later.
The Really Blue 32GB Google Pixel XL will ship in 2 to 3 weeks’ time, so chances are you will most probably miss the Christmas celebrations with a new smartphone. Those who want the Quite Black and Very Silver models will definitely have to wait until early 2017, since those colors will ship out in a matter of 4 to 5 weeks’ time.
Just to recap, the Google Pixel XL will boast of a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, a fingerprint scanner, 4GB of RAM, NFC support, a 12.3MP shooter at the back, and a choice of 32GB of 128GB of internal storage. There is no microSD memory card slot, so you can forget about bringing different music and movies on your handset through carefully labelled memory cards, all powered by a 3,450mAh battery with Android 7.1 Nougat in tow. However, do take note that picking up the 32GB Google Pixel XL should see you make the upgrade to the already available Android 7.1.1 Nougat update.
