    Usually from October 15 a week or 2 should be able get your hands on if I remember my pixel 3xl pre order.
    Ok, I didn't pre-order the 3, but both the first and 2nd gen had very long delays. We'll see how they do this time around.

    Bottom line is that by the time they have their phones in customers' hands, they're almost in early January of the next year and at the time the next Qualcomm processor is announced. They're always behind. Personally I think they need to resolve shipping delays and launch just after or just prior to the iPhone at latest.
    I just try to keep things into a simpler perspective. Because it's a continuous cycle, my thoughts are that the calendar year doesn't matter much from a consumer perspective. Excluding what works best for an OEM's bottom line, it shouldn't matter much when any OEM releases a device or whether it's the latest Qualcomn processor. If we didn't know which processor was in the device its doubtful that anyone would know the difference because the changes are very incremental. I think it's a great strategy on Qualcomm's part, but it makes suckers out of the consumer.

    Not really. Google takes ages to ship their devices compared to others. The iPhone was launched on Sept 10, and will be in customers' hands tomorrow, Sept 20. The Pixel will launch on October 15, and if we're lucky, people may have them in their hands end of November if the past is anything to go by.
    Don't know where you ordered yours but I ordered my Pixel 3XL October 9th and received it on October 18th. That was straight from Google.

    Edit....I see where you posted an update to mustang about your order.Does the Pixel line launch too late each year?-screenshot_20190919-135518_chrome.jpeg

    Like I said in a previous post, I had massive delays for the Pixel and the Pixel 2. I didn't order the 3. If they've got it sorted, then my comment is probably not relevant at this point.

    Yep I think it is. I am an example, now on Note 10+ and probably won't look at pixel 4. But yes, brand loyalty plays a big part, but hard to imagine they are not losing customers to Samsung and apple that both cycles are before pixel.
    Google definitely should get the jump on Apple by releasing the Pixel lineup on par with the Notes release. If Google prices pixels $100 cheaper then the iPhone they could take a lot of apples consumers.

    You'll only get fringe customers or phone hoppers. People heavily vested in IOS or their messaging features rarely switch unless they see a device that sets them on fire.....no, not the Note 7 kind of fire.

    OR - gaining customers who aren't thrilled with the iPhone or Samsung - we're talking about 3 of the biggest companies in the world so I'd guess they have some idea what they're doing.
    But if they launch in August they will still be able to gain customers who aren’t thrilled with iPhone or Samsung.

    I would say yes it launches too late if it is not going to take advantage of that time to best all of the phones released earlier. Can't come to the table late and be outdated by time your released and expect to gain market shares.

    The Pixel line launching late with less flashy features, somewhat unimpressive hardware and outdated designs doesn’t help.

    Phones are released pretty much year round so the idea that Oct is late is bogus. I bought the Note 10+ not because it came earlier and an October release didn't influence me not to buy the Pixel. Yeah, some buy based on time intervals but seriously, if you want something, you wait, or you don't.

    I wouldn't say too late. This is the normal Pixel launch time.. at least to me. Anywhere in October is where I expect.

    I definitely agree not late .
    I mean you die hard pixel lover it doesn't matter what other phones launch , I'm looking for pixel launch in October ,now you have others that go between Android phones and most know the launch date of each manufacturer so they probably wait until end of the year see what it brings . Then you have people just looking for a phone don't matter which phone launch what date. It's not like it has to sell all it's phones on launch date , it's year round sales until their next launch .

    naw, as long as they launch in time for the holiday season. as long as they are released around the same time every year, there should be no problems with their fans.

    No, after thinking about it a little more I don't think it's too late. I think it may give them more time to optimize the chip for what they want to do. Putting out brand new isn't always the best option just because it's new.
