Google runs out of Pixel 5 units to pre-order in several European countries
Google launched its first flagship smartphone with 5G, the Pixel 5, on September 30, 2020, along with a new version of the 4a with the same connectivity. However, it seems interested consumers in some countries where the former is already available to pre-order are out of luck already.
The new Snapdragon 765G-powered phone is indeed now listed as out of stock on the French, German, Irish and British versions of Google's online Store. Similarly, the Pixel 4a (5G) is not yet a valid purchase on these platforms. This is a shame, particularly as the OEM had been offering a free pair of Bose QC35 II earphones with this new range in all of these countries.
The offer applies to the Pixel 5 and 4a (5G) in the UK and Ireland, and to the 5 alone in Germany and France. It expires on October 14, 2020 in the latter 2 countries and on October 19 in the first 2. Meanwhile, the 5 can still be pre-ordered against its October 29 release in the US and Canada - however, this only applies to unlocked units and not those on the Google Fi network.
