Google’s finally confirmed the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and the devices are currently available to pre-order ahead of their release date. There are some great reasons to pre-order right now, but some of you might want to wait a few more days before buying a new Pixel.
If you’re hunting for your next smartphone Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL should be near the top of your list. The company’s flagships come with a ton of interesting upgrades and they’re worth a look if you’re thinking about going with an Android phone over Apple’s iPhone.
The new Pixels won’t hit shelves until October 18th, but you can order one right now if you need a new device.
Pixel 3 pre-orders are live at Google and Verizon and the two companies are selling three different colors (White, Pink, Black) in two different storage sizes (64GB and 128GB).
The smaller 5.5-inch Pixel 3 starts at $799 for the base model while the larger 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL starts at $899. There are already ways to save on a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL, but the best deals likely won’t arrive for a few more weeks at least.
While the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL look good on paper, spending $800 (or more) on a product you haven’t held in your hands is a tall order.
There are also some great reasons to consider pre-ordering a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL. The devices aren’t sold out yet, but we could see the shipping dates move as we push away from launch.
Verizon will have Pixel 3 stock on hand at its physical retail locations starting October 18th, but in-store stock can be unpredictable. The best way to secure the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL model you want is by putting in an early order.
In this guide we’ll help you decide if pre-ordering a Pixel 3 is the right decision for you and your budget. Keep these things in mind as you try and decide what to do with your money.
Pre-Order If You Want Your Pixel 3 ASAP
If you want a very specific Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL model in your hands by October 18th, you'll want to put in a pre-order right now.
Google's new devices might not sell out completely, but there's a very good chance we see some (if not all) shipping dates get pushed back into late October and November.
Google is notorious for delays and some models could be hard to find before, and after, their October 18th release date.
If you want to guarantee a delivery on or around their release, you'll want to put in a pre-order through Google or Verizon soon.
