Android fans, we have good news and bad news. The good news is that while it’s still impossible to buy an unlocked Google Pixel XL smartphone on Google’s website, there’s finally another spot that has Google’s hot new phablet in stock. In fact, with free Prime shipping, you can have the world’s best Android phone in your hands by Thursday. The bad news is that sadly, you’re going to have to pay a premium if you want to get your hands on Google’s latest and greatest.

The 5.5-inch Pixel XL smartphone starts at $769 unlocked from Google’s Play store, which is a decent price when you consider the entry-level iPhone 7 Plus costs the same thing. The only problem, of course, is that you can actually buy one. In fact, you can’t even order one — all you can do is enter your email to be notified when they’re back in stock. If you’re willing to pay a premium of just over $180 though, you can order one right now on Amazon. As anyone who has ever bought an imported, unlocked phone before knows all too well, that’s actually not a big premium at all.

Inventory is very limited, of course, so you’ll definitely want to jump on one if you’re hoping to get your hands on a Pixel XL anytime soon.


You can also get a 128GB model, but you’ll have to pay a lot more.
