The Google Pixel is one of the most-wanted smartphones and has found favor with consumers and tech experts alike.

The 5-inch Android 7.1 Nougat powered phablet launched in three color options, of which one became unavailable upon its release. However, now the handset is available again in the exclusive blue color via the Google Store online.

For the uninitiated, the Google Pixel — which was made available for preorder on Oct. 4 — was released in three hues: the Quite Black, Very Silver and Really Blue.

The Really Blue hue is a U.S. exclusive — albeit temporarily — and is a limited edition. When the Google handset was listed for preorder, the Really Blue variant of the Google Pixel smartphone sold out within a few hours of being made available.

In November, there were murmurs that a Google product manager had disclosed that the Really Blue version of the smartphone would not be restocked in the near future. However, this news turned out to be false as affirmed by an Android Police report.

A spokesperson from Google "confirmed their plans to restock the Really blue Pixel on the Google Store, and customers who are interested in this color should use the store's waitlist function to be notified" shared the publication at the time.

While Google did not spill the beans on when the Pixel would become available in the blue color, it has now stayed true to its promise and a month later, the color is now up for grabs on the Google Store.

While the smartphone has made a comeback on the Google Store, consumers will only be able to snag the 32 GB variant of the handset in the color. The 128 GB version of the Google Pixel is also not available in the Really Blue color. The hue is also not available as an option for bigger sibling Google Pixel XL (32 GB) and still shows as out of stock. Google only released the color for the 32 GB model of both the handsets and it seems it has stuck to the trend in the second wave.

The Really Blue color option of the Google Pixel may not have been available for purchase since it got sold out in the initial launch — that is until now — but that has not dampened the demand for the device.

Morgan Stanley analysts estimate that the Google Pixel smartphones are on track to generate $3.8 billion in 2017. The company is expected to sell nearly 5 million to 6 million Pixel handsets in 2017.

For now, those looking to snag the Google Pixel in the blue color can grab it from the Google Store for $649. It will ship by Dec. 9 if one orders it right away.
