    We don't have Google Pixel phones here in Dubai so I was wondering if I order the unlocked version directly from Google US and have it shipped, will it work or are they restricted to US Bands?

    The Pixels come in two flavors from what I remember, a US version and a Europe/Asia version. The Europe/Asia version works in the Middle East.

    I think it will have limitations regarding specific LTE bands unless the bands posted above match the carrier you will use on

    Then I guess I'm better off ordering it from the Google UK store
