White Google Pixel 2 sees shipping delays

Vlad, 23 October 2017

Another year, another Google phone shipping fiasco. The original Pixel and Pixel XL were almost impossible to find in stock for months after their launch, and while the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL don't seem to be having issues on the same order of magnitude (at least not with regard to shipping), there still are some hiccups here and there.

Case in point - the Clearly White Pixel 2. This color version of the smaller handset is going to see delays in shipping that will be over a month in some cases. For certain people who pre-ordered this model and got an initial shipping estimate of October, that's now being changed to late November.

The information comes from a few different posts on Reddit, made by people who have received emails from Google about the delay. To make this pill easier to swallow, the company is offering a code for a free Live Case to those affected. The code itself will arrive in a subsequent email.

Year after year we hope Google gets its logistics act together (and discovers that the world consists of more than 6-7 countries), but maybe 2017 isn't the lucky one either. The wait continues.
