The Pixel 5 smartphone, which was officially released more than a week ago, is not yet on sale worldwide, but Google has listed it in stores in multiple market regions. Despite forecasts, Google may ship fewer than 1 million phones this year. But consumer enthusiasm for the New Pixel 5 has proved so strong that we’ve seen “out-of-stock” purchase pages in many places.
It should be noted that the Pixel 5 is officially on sale on October 15. However, at this time, the Pixel 5 is no longer possible to pre-order in the UK/Ireland/Germany and other regions.
In terms of configuration, the Pixel 5 also does not use the Qualcomm SnapDragon 8 Series flagship SoC, but instead uses the mid-range SnapDragon 765G chipset. In terms of color, retailers in at least each region offer two options.
If you’re in the U.S., you can still book the Pixel 5 on the website, with an estimated shipping date of October 30. But customers of Google Fi virtual carriers seem to be facing a tighter shortage.
It is not known when full supply will resume.
