The Google Pixel 5 is already out of stock in some countries

Google’s Pixel 5 won’t launch internationally until October 15, but the device is already enjoying high demand. Preorders for Google’s next flagship (via 9to5google) are currently out of stock on the Google Store in the UK, Ireland, and Germany, with no word on when stock will be replenished.

The good news is you can still find the Pixel 5 in those regions from retail partners, so all hope is not lost. But if you want to purchase it directly from Google, you’re out of luck, at least for now.

The Pixel 5 is launching in Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, and Taiwan on October 15, with a launch in the U.S. and Canada to follow on October 29. So far, preorders for the Pixel 5 are still available in the U.S., but that could change as we approach the release date.

Google’s latest flagship was announced at the company’s Launch Night In event, where it also unveiled the Pixel 4a 5G, Nest Audio smart speaker, and Chromecast with Google TV. Although the device features more modest specs, it comes at a more affordable price of $699 and features a really nice aluminum design. In some regions, Google was also running a promotion that offered preorders a free pair of Bose QC 35 II headphones, which could have contributed to high demand.

According to the Nikkei Asian Review, Google set modest sales expectations for the Pixel 5, so either a very limited amount of units were made available or demand is higher than expected. It’s hard to judge, especially with a pandemic affecting so many countries around the world. We also can’t confirm how many units were made available in the first place.

If you do decide to pick up the Pixel 5, you’ll get a device that includes a 6-inch FHD+ OLED display, 4000mAh battery, Snapdragon 765G chip, and a dual-camera setup with a 16MP ultra-wide lens. The device also comes equipped with Android 11 out of the box and promises a minimum of three years of OS and security updates. Google this week said Pixel 5 owners will be able to use the device on its Fi network.
