The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to launch from €649 and US$749 next month
Google has already confirmed numerous details about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, even going as far as showcasing them in the window of its NYC store. For some reason, the company is still holding back on revealing when it will launch the Pixel 6 series though, and for how much.
According to @heyitsyogesh, Google has settled on US$749 for the cheapest Pixel 6, undercutting the iPhone 13 and Galaxy S21 by US$50 and US$100, respectively. For context, Google launched the Pixel 5 for US$699 last year, a drop from the US$799 and US$899 that it charged for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL the year before. Additionally, This is Tech Today asserts that the Pixel 6 will be available for €649 in the Eurozone, €20 more than the Pixel 5.
By contrast, the Pixel 6 Pro is expected to cost US$1,049 or US$1,099 in the US and €899 in the Eurozone. Hence, the Pixel 6 Pro will be as expensive as other flagship smartphones and the most expensive smartphone that Google has released so far. In comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro starts at US$999, with the iPhone 13 Pro Max available from US$1,099.
Incidentally, This is Tech Today claims that Google will unveil the Pixel 6 series on October 19, before shipping pre-orders on October 28. The latter matches up with one posed by Mishaal Rahman, courtesy of the Google Camera app. If these dates are correct, then we would expect Google to announce the Pixel 6 series' launch date within the next ten days or so.
