Since their release in October of last year, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have been in high demand. In fact, the pre-order excitement that followed their announcement was enough to keep Google’s online store offline for a few hours, with most SKUs selling out for more than a month. Despite only being accessible in nine countries and supply difficulties, the new phones managed to achieve a quarterly sales record for the company. Google has launched the Pixel 6 series in Italy and Spain through its online store, with supply now appearing to be more stable.
The new phones will be offered in limited quantities in both countries, according to Google Italy’s release. The company anticipates the shares to sell out quickly due to high demand, with additional units arriving in May. So, if you live in Italy or Spain and have been considering purchasing the new Pixel phones for some time, now is the time to do so – none of the devices are now listed as out of stock.
Unfortunately, Google is only selling a few SKUs of the phones – they’re only available in Carbon/Just Black with 128GB of storage, with no other color or capacity combination. The smaller Pixel costs €649, while the larger Pixel Pro costs €899. There are no pre-order or launch-day discounts like there were when the Pixel 6 series was first offered in other markets last year.
With fingerprint sensor glitches, poor signal strength, and ghost dialing bugs, the Pixel 6 series was a problematic disaster when it originally launched. However, Google has fixed the majority of the flaws with a series of software upgrades, with the January patch ultimately resolving a number of long-standing bugs. However, the February OTA will be a make-or-break moment for the phones. Despite these flaws, the new Pixels are great value for money and have fantastic cameras.
