As we’ve gotten closer to the launch screen for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, we’ve had a trickle of information, both from official announcements from Google and unofficial information in the form of leaks. A new leak now offers unconfirmed information about the pricing of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
According to Android Police founder Artem Russakovskiithe Pixel 7 starts at $599, while the Pixel 7 Pro starts at $899. These prices are right in line with what the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro cost when they launched last year, so it’s good to see that Google is likely to stay on track as other flagship devices begin to see price increases.
If it’s true that Google is keeping the new Pixel prices the same as in previous years, it would contrast sharply with the recently released iPhone 14 and 14 Pro, the two devices that are among Google’s biggest competitors in the space. Since the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro start at $799 and $999 respectively, the fact that the base model of the Pixel 7 retails for $200 less makes it a solid choice for anyone looking to stay on top of their smartphone without breaking the bank. defeat.
Of course, that’s not to say that one device is inherently better than another based solely on their pricing; however, it’s just a fact that the cost of buying the Pixel is much lower than the iPhone. Neither Google nor Apple have raised their prices over last year’s models, so the contrast is even bigger than ever if the leak is true.
Google recently announced that pre-orders for both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will go live on October 6 in a lighthearted video teasing the design of the Pixel 7 Pro. That’s the same day Google is hosting its next Made by Google hardware event, meaning you won’t have to wait long to pre-order the phones once Google shares all the official details. And assuming this price leak is correct, you don’t have to save a ridiculous amount of money either.
