Although they were hoped to return earlier next month, it seems that Google will be pushing its Pixel device launch near the top of October. That has given tipsters and leakers some longer to finish the image of the Pixel 6 and, therefore, the Pixel 6 Pro before that point. The two have admittedly been leaked over and once again, but one detail remained unsure. Now new information from Europe tries to place a tag on the two phones and that they aren’t as bad as feared, counting on which of the two you’re talking about.
Debates about the Pixel 6’s pricing strategy have emerged since Rich Osterloh teased that the Pixel 6 would be a premium-priced product. That is, of course, hospitable interpretation, and a few have believed it might mean a starting price range of $900 to $1,100. Others, however, argued that Google would be killing the new phones if it didn’t make them cheaper than the competition.
It would seem that Google may have encountered a compromise between affordability and value perception. Consistent with this is often Tech Today’s M. Brandon Lee, the ECU price for the Pixel 6 could be 649 EUR, while the Pixel 6 Pro might sell for 899 EUR. Despite the large jump in specs, the Pixel 6 is merely slightly costlier than the Pixel 5 last year.
That said, Mr Lee speculates that the US pricing for these phones could translate to $799 and $1,099 for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, respectively. That’s taking into consideration currency conversions and the competition, pitting the Pixel 6 against the iPhone 13 and, therefore, the Pixel 6 Pro against the iPhone 13 Pro Max. That also suggests Google is aiming for the acute ends of Apple’s four-strong iPhone lineup.
The price difference between the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro may additionally be a touch unusual, a minimum of it until you realize that the 2 are very different phones with only a couple of things in common. Either way, the costs are a minimum of on par with rival flagship phones, and, this time, they could even be on an equivalent footing in terms of performance and features, maybe even more.
