Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro Might Be Cheaper Than Expected
Whether a device is successful or not often hinges around pricing, and the biggest companies in the world know it, too. That’s why the price of Google’s long-awaited Pixel 6 lineup is so darn important. These flagships will compete with some truly amazing phones from Apple, Samsung, and a host of other Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Huawei, and many others.
Fortunately, Google seems to have made the right decision and will reportedly sell the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro for a much lower price than anyone expected — $749 for the base model and $1,049/1,099 for the top-tier one. While certainly not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, these are still acceptable MSRPs for Google’s latest and greatest phones, both of which will offer an unparalleled user experience in the Android ecosystem.
With beautiful displays, top-notch craftsmanship, zero bloatware, a bespoke SoC, and some of the best cameras money can buy, the Pixel 6 line-up is all but guaranteed to succeed! And, well, a palatable price tag on top of it all is just icing on the cake!
For our European readers, the Pixel 6 should retail for around €649, with its bigger and more powerful big brother going for around €899. These prices are still not final, but they have been sourced from multiple leakers, so it has a bit of weight. Moreover, it stands to reason that Google would sell the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro at a more palatable price tag to stand a better chance against Apple and Samsung.
Will the Pixel 6 Succeed?
It’s still too early to predict anything with confidence, but there’s a reason to be optimistic. These Pixel phones are unique enough to stand out from the crowd while also offering a bit of their flair in terms of hardware and software. If it’s the absolute best Android experience you’re after, then you have to go with a Pixel.
And now, with updated internals, high refresh rate AMOLED displays, and an even better camera system than ever before, it might be time to give Google a chance — assuming you aren’t already a member of the (surprisingly sizable) Pixel club!
