In many countries, it is no longer possible to order a new product
Officially, sales of the Google 5 smartphone were supposed to start on October 15, but judging by the way things are now, neither in five days nor, probably, in ten days it will not be possible to buy a smartphone just like that.
Google Pixel 5 was in short supply even before the start of sales
According to the source, Pixel 5 is no longer possible to pre-order in different countries. For example, this will not work in Great Britain, Ireland, Germany. In the United States, pre-orders are accepted, but the preliminary deadline for their execution is the very end of the month, October 30. All this points to a smartphone shortage, and there are still five days before the start of retail sales …
Shortly before the announcement of the Pixel 5, there was evidence that Google will produce a relatively small number of these smartphones this year – up to a million. It is possible that all (or most) of this production plan has already been selected through pre-orders. In this case, the Pixel 5 will not be available in retail soon.
