Verizon is selling Google Pixel XL like hotcake. Buyers however, who ordered now will have to wait for their unit to arrive on January 2017.

Verizon delays not unusual

 The telephone service carrier has acquired a reputation of shipping smartphone units that have been ordered months ago. The Google Pixel XL smartphone is no exception. Verizon customers who ordered for one right now will have to wait for next year to get it.

The Google Pixel XL 32GB unit will be available on January 11, 2017 while the 128GB unit will be handed out two days later or on January 13. Interestingly, the Google Pixel XL has been out for some time but still takes Verizon almost two months to deliver the item. Some Industry observers projected sales for the Google Pixel XL may almost reached $4 billion by 2017.

Verizon subscribers who placed their Pixel XL orders much earlier however, will be able to receive their units before the end of the year. Verizon will start distributing the Pixel XL smartphone to the early birds on December 26, according to phonearena. Some Verizon customers who could not wait for the Pixel XL choose instead to buy a different brand instead such as the Moto Z Force Droid.
