- Google Store
Look like that’s it, folks! Both sizes of the limited edition “Really Blue” Google Pixel phones are already out of stock in the minutes immediately following their announcement on Tuesday.
If the blue Pixel is indeed a limited edition, you might not see in available to buy anymore.
Meanwhile, the “Very Silver” and “Quite Black” options are still up for grabs over at the Google Store, at least at the time of writing.
The Pixel smartphones are Google’s “first” smartphones in the sense that it’s taken more control over the hardware of the device.
Both devices have aluminum uni-body designs with an inlaid glass panel on the back, and there’s only Google’s “G” branding, which is a first. The Nexus devices of old that were considered “Google devices” had the manufacturers’ mark, like LG, Huawei, and Motorola.
The Pixel also runs a version of Android 7.0 that’s exclusive to the Pixel, which comes with Google’s Assistant, which lets you get contextual information from Google searches by using your voice or text, and can perform tasks like making restaurant reservations.
Google’s Nexus devices will continue to run the pure, stock version of Android where features like Duo and Assistant aren’t built-in.
