Due to its reception by critics and Android fans, the Pixel 6 has become a tough phone to buy. Here’s where to find the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in stock to buy Google’s best phones for yourself.

Due to the continuing chip shortage, combined with “high demand” for the Pixel 6 Pro, some customers’ pre-orders have been delayed, while retailers struggle to keep phones in stock. In particular, the Google Store is currently unable to ship new orders for the Pixel 6 Pro until at least January. Fortunately, it’s all too easy to get the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro from places other than the Google Store.

Where Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are in stock

If you buy an unlocked phone in the United States, other than the Google Store, there are only four authorized retailers where you can buy the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro: Amazon, Best Buy, B&H, and Target. Of course, the four retailers are limited to selling only what they can get from Google, and the demand for Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones currently massively exceeds the available supply.

The two retailers to watch out for are Target and Best Buy, as your local store may have Pixel 6 units in stock in the store. Likewise, both retailers offer the option of having your order shipped to your local store for pickup – in case shipping to your home isn’t a good option for your situation.

We’ll be keeping an eye on each retailer’s inventory over the next few weeks and keeping you up to date with the fastest ways to buy the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

Last update: As of November 22, 2021, Amazon and the Google Store are the only retailers to accept orders for the Pixel 6 series, with Amazon only offering the smaller Pixel 6. If you have Kinda Coral at heart, you will currently have some wait for your order until January.

Another possibility to get your hands on the Pixel 6 series is to check if your local Best Buy or Target store has the phone in stock. Since both retailers are currently offering discounts on the Pixel 6, you’re unlikely to find them still available.

Operators Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro

In the United States, cellular carriers carry a lot of weight in the smartphone industry. As such, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that many of them can get you the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro faster than retailers. Better yet, many carriers can offer financing for your new phone which is included with your cell phone bill.

On the flip side, however, you’ll end up paying more for the smaller Pixel 6 if you buy through AT&T or Verizon, as those carriers sell mmWave variants which cost $ 100 more than unlocked models. Worse yet, it’s been noted that AT&T sells all of its Pixel 6 phones for $ 40 more than any other retailer or carrier, for whatever reason.

Last update: As of November 22, 2021, more and more carriers are running out of stock of Pixel 6 Pro, although most are still taking orders unlike most retailers. The fastest way to buy Google’s latest high-end flagship is still through big carriers like AT&T and Verizon.

Of particular note is that Verizon appears to have the Sorta Sunny and Stormy Black Pixel 6 Pro in stock and ready to ship, while the Cloudy White is out of stock until December. Meanwhile, AT&T has run out of stock of Pixel 6 Pro in Cloudy White. Google Fi is also a good option for now, finally getting more stock from both devices.

Fortunately, if you’re trying to get the smaller Pixel 6, pretty much every carrier you can think of has the phone in stock. It’s just a matter of how picky you are about color. Currently, T-Mobile and Verizon are the only two carriers to offer the Pixel 6 to Sorta Seafoam. Unfortunately, no carriers are currently taking orders for the Kinda Coral Pixel 6.
