Despite the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL making their official retail debuts on October 19, both handsets were already available for pre-order on the day of their announcement. While some have started receiving their orders, there are plenty of others that are still waiting.
Now, it seems, that Google is starting to send out emails notifying folks about shipping delays. This can range naturally depending on when your order was placed, but it looks like things could be backed up as far as a month. Luckily, the firm is trying to make amends by giving those that have delays on their orders a free Live Case. It is unknown if this is a global gesture or if it is something that is only occurring with customers in the United States.
The Live Cases start at $40 and give users a great way to customize their Pixel handsets. The $40 model gives users a case with a slim design and hard exterior shell, while the $50 dual-layer variant has a soft supportive interior with hard exterior shell. You can choose from preselected designs from Google or upload your own photo for something a bit more unique.
