Google delays white Pixel 2 orders by a month
San Francisco: Google has delayed the delivery of some of its newly-launched 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 said late Monday.
To make up for the delay, Google is now offering these customers a free Live Case, which normally sell for $40.
Based on 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 is priced at 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, starting November 1.
