The Hunt for the Rare and Elusive Blue Pixel

February 20, 2017 by
Last year, Google released the Pixel and Pixel XL in Quite Black and Very Silver. Up until now, the blue version was only available in the US.

"Launching just in time for London Fashion Week, Pixel "Really Blue” is the bold and youthful sibling to the Quite Black and Very Silver colours," said Rachael Roberts, Industrial Designer at Google. "Our goal for Pixel was to create a simple and smart design in a beautifully crafted case and we hope "Really Blue” will appeal to the fun and stylish fashionistas among us.”

Canadians can now pre-order the limited edition "Really Blue" Pixel and Pixel XL exclusively through Rogers. There is no set date for when it will be available, and Google has yet to say exactly how many will be available.

This azure coloured smartphones are only available in 32 GB at this time. Both phones use the most current Android OS - Android 7.1, Nougat. Both have an "aerospace-grade aluminum unibody" with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protected AMOLED displays.

The 5.0" Pixel will run you $199, and the 5.5" Pixel XL costs $349 on select two-year Share Everything plans.
