According to David Ruddock from AndroidPolice, the company will make this update available for Pixel phones in the first week or two of August.

Since release date keeps changing, Ruddock further explains that this information comes from a reliable source, but the certainty of it cannot be judged quickly. So, it looks like the Pixel phones may receive the update in the month of August, where the date is subjected to change anytime.
