Sure, we're still buzzing about the new Pixels that were announced at this month's Google I/O keynote, but that doesn't mean we aren't still on the lookout for the best Google Pixel 6 deals. Since the flagship phones first appeared last fall, we've been tracking down the most exciting promotions and placing them here so you always know where to find the best prices. 

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have made waves as powerful and affordable alternatives to Samsung and Apple devices, but that wasn't always a given. As we noted in our review of the Google Pixel 6, past generations of the smartphone were marred by software bugs, uninspired design, and poor battery performance. For years, the world was unsure if Google would ever change course and create a high-quality flagship smartphone. Thankfully, with the Pixel 6 lineup, Google has finally delivered. The two Pixel 6 devices have wowed users with their advanced 50MP rear cameras and the introduction of the 'Tensor', Google's very first in-house chipset. In fact, we went so far as to select the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro as two of the best Android phones that you can buy right now. 

Now, without any further ado, let's check out some deals. A lot of these promos require altering your phone plan or trading in an old device, so you're in luck if you're looking to make a change to your wireless service. Also, keep in mind that we'll be updating this page on a weekly basis, so check back in later if you don't find what you're looking for today.

Frequently asked questions

Is the Pixel 6 waterproof?

Although they aren't exactly waterproof, the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are considered to be water-resistant, with a resistance rating of IP68 for both moisture and dust. In practical terms, this means that your phone will probably be fine if you accidentally drop it in the pool or sink.

Will there be a Google Pixel 7?

Absolutely! As we learned during the 2022 Google I/O keynote, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are expected to arrive later this year, alongside the Pixel 6a and Pixel Watch. The Pixel 7 lineup will feature a similar look as their predecessors, but with a new camera visor (made of recycled aluminum) and next-gen Tensor chipset. 

Can the Pixel 6 charge wirelessly?

Both the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have wireless charging capabilities. In fact, neither phone comes with a charger in the box, so you'll want to pick up  a Pixel 6 wireless charger to pair with your new device. 

Once you get your new phone, you'll probably want to protect the investment with a durable, high-quality case. Lucky for you, we've tested loads of sturdy cases and you can read about them in our roundups of the best Google Pixel 6 cases and best Google Pixel 6 Pro cases
