Retailers and wireless carriers are preparing for the unveiling of the Google Pixel 7 series next week, which means there are more Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 deals than ever before.

Pair that new release with the approach of the holiday season, and you're looking at a great time to buy. After all, just because everyone is always looking for the hottest new device, it doesn't mean it's necessarily going to top last year's phones. We chose the Google Pixel 6 as one of the best Android phones (opens in new tab) that money could buy, and it's quite possible that that will remain the case even when the Pixel 7 hits store shelves. The phone has a beautiful 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, and with a starting price of under $600, you're paying much less than you would for a similar phone like the also-great Samsung Galaxy S22. The Pixel 6 Pro takes things even further, with a large 6.7-inch display, excellent battery life, 12GB of RAM, and rounded edges for an elegant look. With a standard retail price of $899 for the 128GB version, you're still getting a great value when you compare this device to non-Google competitors. 

All of this month's best Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro prices can be found below. Thinking about picking up the more-affordable Google Pixel 6a instead? Go check out our Google Pixel 6a deals page to see that cheap phone get even cheaper.

Frequently asked questions

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 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. 

Google Pixel 6 vs. Pixel 6a

The Google Pixel 6a hit store shelves a few weeks ago, so many folks are wondering if they should pick up the budget version of Google's flagship or opt for the original. The two phones share a lot of the same features, including the Tensor chip, but there are a few key differences. The Pixel 6, for instance, has a decidedly smoother display thanks to its 90Hz refresh rate, and the stunning 50MP camera is certainly worth trying out if you like to take photos. 

On the other hand, the Pixel 6a boasts a lot of the same power and durability features as the flagship Pixel 6 at a significantly lower price. The decision is ultimately up to you, but take a look at our Google Pixel 6 vs. Pixel 6a guide if you need some help deciding.
