The Google Pixel 8 series launch is just around the corner, and the company has announced an event on October 4 to unveil the phones. A new leak has revealed the US pricing for the Google Pixel 8 series ahead of launch.
Google Pixel 8 Series US Pricing Leak
According to a leak by tipster Kamila on Twitter, the Google Pixel 8 will launch at $699, while the Google Pixel 8 Pro will debut at $899. This leak comes straight from Google’s promotional document of the phone, and it suggests the Pixel 8 will get a $100 price increase. Thankfully, the Pixel 8 Pro will maintain the same price tag of $899 as the Google Pixel 7 Pro.
This continues the trend of the Google Pixel 7a, which launched at a higher price than the Google Pixel 6a. However, the phone brought several upgrades, such as a new camera sensor, higher refresh rate and wireless charging support, resulting in an increase in price.
Similarly, the new Tensor G3 chip, bigger battery and faster refresh rate could result in higher prices for the Pixel 8. While the Pixel 8 Pro is a major upgrade this year, Google has decided to stick with the same pricing.
