We’ve talked about it practically non-stop, but we just can’t wait for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to be officially released. The phones were teased back in August, and aside from the marketing beginning to ramp up, Google still has not shared when it will be releasing the new phones.
A new leak from Brandon Lee at This is Tech Today reveals a bit more information that we’ve been wondering about. First of which are the names of the color options for the Pixel 6. According to this leak, the Pixel 6 will come in Fog and Carbon, while the Pixel 6 Pro will come in Carbon. This may seem a bit odd, but there’s a good reason for the fact that we don’t have the name of all of the color options yet. This is because Google will be limiting color options to different regions, just like we’ve seen from previous smartphone launches in the past.
Moving past the colors, Lee confirmed what many of speculated in terms of when the Pixel 6 series will be available. Google is said to hold an event on October 19, sharing the rest of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro specs and whatever else it may be working on. Then, the two devices will be released on October 28, and this lines up with previous leaks and rumors we’ve seen elsewhere.
Finally, Lee shared what his sources claim to be the European pricing for both of the devices. Thanks to an image shared in the video, the European pricing will come in at 649 EUR for the Pixel 6 and 899 EUR for the Pixel 6 Pro. Since you can’t always just convert EUR to dollars, Lee suggests the Pixel 6 will be priced at $799 here in the States, and $1,099 for the 6 Pro.
This pricing would help Google to align its new smartphone lineup with the newly-released iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max. With the differences in specs between the two, this helps to explain the $300 price gap between the two devices.
While these leaks look pretty convincing, we’ll just have to continue twiddling our thumbs as we await Google’s event announcement.
