San Francisco, Oct 24: Google has delayed the delivery of some of its latest flagship white Pixel 2 devices by up to a month as it is having a hard time keeping the smartphone in stock.
“Some people who ordered a white Pixel 2 and received an estimated ship date of late October are receiving emails saying their order has been delayed by up to a month,” a report in The Verge asserted late Monday.
In a bid to make up for the delay, Google is now offering these customers a free Live Case, which normally sell for $40.
According to Reddit reports, the issue is limited to the 64GB model of the white Pixel 2 thatA — along with nearly every other model — remained out of stock or on a multi-week delay from Google’s online store.
In India, Pixel 2 costs Rs 61,000 for the 64GB variant.
The pre-orders commence from October 26. The devices will be available in over 1,000 stores across the country and on Flipkart from November 1.
