Where can you buy the new Pixel phones in the U.S.? Well, there are a few options, and here they are!
Now that Google has officially announced its new Pixel phones, you may be wondering where you can purchase one for yourself. Unlike a lot of other phones, you can't just walk into a carrier store and grab one, but they are going to be available from a few different retailers. Google will be selling the phones through its own store, but if you prefer to shop elsewhere you'll be able to do that too.
Availability will vary by retailer, and some may offer different promotions to entice you to make the purchase from them. Here's where you can find the new Pixel phones in the U.S. Be sure to check back for more retailers and information as it becomes available.
The Google Store may be the easiest place to order your new phone from. You'll get free standard shipping, a cheap upgrade to express shipping and easy returns if needed. Google has also expanded its financing options beyond just Project Fi this year, meaning you can pay for your phone over the course of 24 months if you'd rather.
You can also purchase the device protection in case you want some additional warranty coverage.
Whether you are an existing Project Fi customer or want to make the switch, you'll be able to pick up a Pixel or Pixel XL through Project Fi again. Existing Project Fi customers can log in and pre-order now and get a free Google Daydream with their order. New customers can sign up for Project Fi through the Google Store listing.
Current Project Fi customers will only be able to order the black or silver version, not the blue.
Google has announced that Verizon is the exclusive carrier partner for the Pixel and Pixel XL in the U.S.
Best Buy is listed as a retailer for the Pixel and Pixel XL, but Google did not announce whether or not it would have stock available for launch. The retailer began Nexus 6P sales following the official launch, so you may have to wait a bit to place your order through Best Buy.
