Price may be cheaper than iPhone 13
Back in August, Google shared some details about the Pixel 6, but so far has kept silent on its price. New rumors suggest the Pixel 6 might not be as expensive like some feared.
The Pixel 6 gets a fresh new design, a Google-built processor, improved camera capabilities, and more. Dduring a interview with Gizmodo, Google Chief Hardware and Services Officer Rick Osterloh has made it clear that the Pixel 6 is Google’s return to the flagship smartphone space. And in another interview with a German newspaper Der Spiegel, Osterloh also described the Pixel 6 as a “premium consumer product” and noted that it will be “expensive”.
Osterloh did not provide a specific price range, so there is some wiggle room as to what people might consider costly. The prizes recent flagship phones from Samsung, Apple and others have has declined slightly in recent years, with recent iPhones and Galaxy phones starting around $ 800.
But if a tweet from a leaker noted @heyitsyogesh is okay, the standard Pixel 6 might not be as expensive as some expected. Yogesh claims source told him the base Pixel 6 will start at $ 749, a number that seems in line with some other leaks claiming the Pixel 6 could cost as little as $ 649 (around $ 749) abroad.
If true, it would be $ 50 less than the base iPhone 13 and potentially position the Pixel 6 between the bottom of what is generally considered a flagship price and the top of the mid-range segment. It won’t be cheap by any means, but nowhere near as dear like the $ 1,000 Galaxy Z Flip 3 or the $ 1,800 Z-fold 3.
But it looks like there will be a big bonus for people considering the Pixel 6 Pro. Yogesh claims the Pro model will start at $ 1,049. That would represent a much larger price increase from the standard Pixel to its Pro or XL sibling over previous Pixel phones, and more expensive than Apple’s $ 999. iPhone 13 Pro. The The Pixel 6 Pro is should include a bonus telephoto lens, bigger battery, better 5G connectivity, and other extra features like UWB support, so it looks like Google is really trying to make sure the Pixel 6 Pro lives up to its “Pro” nickname.
While Google has yet to reveal an official launch date for the Pixel 6, a number of leaks and rumors suggest that Google is considering hosting a hardware storefront in October – October. 19 looks as the most precise date we saw until there. WWith these latest price rumors, it looks like Google is looking to be incredibly competitive with Apple and Samsung, which would be good news for anyone upgrading their device this fall.
