The Pixel 6 Pro may face supply issues as Google sets up waitlist for many of its SKUs
Google released the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro via its own webstore on October 19, 2021. It seems the new smartphones are proving popular thus far, as the Mountain View giant has now announced that its customer support is operating at a reduced pace due to "high volumes". Furthermore, it seems the company has now run into stocking issues for its new higher-end unit, which is now available via waitlist only.
The OEM does indeed list the US$899 6 Pro as out of stock, for each of its three colors (Stormy Black, Cloudy White and Sorty Sunny) and its internal storage options (128GB, 256GB or 512GB), on many regional versions of its first-party store, the US included.
On the other hand, this applies to unlocked units of the new Tensor SoC vehicle only, and it may still be ordered via Verizon on google.com. At the time of writing, it is available in all colors through this channel, albeit not in all storage SKUs.
Meanwhile, the Pixel 6 is still available at present, which starts at US$599 for a base model with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage - albeit without the 6 Pro's third telephoto rear camera.
Alternatively, a Pixel 6 Pro might still be available through Best Buy
