The tech market will be extremely busy during the next few days. Apple is expected to announce new Macs with updated M1X (or M1 Pro/Max) CPUs, while Samsung is also expected to have a snorefest. Between them is what may be Google’s biggest exhibition in 2021. The Pixel 6 and its Pro brother are generating a lot of buzzes, and the latest pricing leak for the phones in the United States could pique that desire even more only days before they go on sale.
The price of the Pixel 6 pair has already been leaked, although those estimates were for European markets. Of course, those figures don’t translate perfectly to other nations, and the $799 and $1,099 projections for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, respectively, were based on some guesswork and computation. That does not appear to be the situation in the United States.
Based on sightings of Target’s shelves and inventory management, the prices may be much better in the United States. The Pixel 6 with 128GB of storage will cost $599, according to this unofficial information. The same storage combination on the Pixel 6 Pro will set you back $898.

M. Brandon Lee agrees, pointing out how ridiculously low this pricing are. It was very realistic to expect the Pixel 6 to be priced similarly to the iPhone 13 or maybe the Galaxy S21, given its sporting hardware. It’s a pleasant surprise that will entice even people who have never purchased a Google Pixel phone before to consider the Pixel 6.
Here are the corroborated #Pixel6 and #Pixel6Pro prices in the Target inventory system in the US.

Google has to be subsidizing this phone like crazy. This is insanity. #teampixel pic.twitter.com/OUBl8cXCBh

Those statistics could be missing the reported Pixel Pass membership, which could cost an extra $50 upfront. Those prices are a value for a high-end phone with a “pure” Android experience, four years of Android upgrades, and five years of security patches. If supplies are limited due to worldwide semiconductor scarcity, getting a Pixel 6 is even more difficult.
