What you need to know

  • A new leak suggests the standard Pixel 6 will start at €649 in Europe.
  • The Pixel 6 Pro could be priced at €899 in the old continent.
  • It also claims that the Pixel 6 series will be announced on October 19.

Last week, Brandon Lee from This is Tech Today gave us our first real-world look at Google's upcoming Pixel 6 Pro. Lee has now revealed a few more details about the upcoming Pixel 6 series phones in a new YouTube video.

According to Brandon Lee's sources, the Google Pixel 6 is going to retail for €649 in Europe, while the bigger Pixel 6 Pro will be priced at €899. While it looks like the Pixel 6 Pro will be nearly as expensive as the best Android phones from Samsung, the standard Pixel 6 may only be €20 more expensive than last year's Pixel 5.

The Pixel 6's black colorway will apparently be called "carbon," while the green option could be marketed as "fog." Aside from fog and carbon, the Pixel 6 is also expected to be offered in a few other fun colors, including a light orange option. The Pixel 6 Pro, on the other hand, is tipped to be offered in silver, gold, and "carbon" variants.

Along with the European pricing and color options, the source also claims that Google will unveil the Pixel 6 series on October 19. Both phones will apparently be released in the U.S. and a few other markets on October 28.

Google's Pixel 6 is rumored to come with a 6.4-inch display featuring FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 6 Pro could feature a bigger 6.7-inch display with a more impressive QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

Both phones are expected to have a 50MP main camera, but only the Pro model will have a telephoto lens with 4x optical zoom. Powering the two phones will be Google's in-house developed Tensor chipset.

  • The pricing is slightly less 'premium' than I might have expected. A trend in the right direction I suppose. It's still a pile of cash to spend when I already have a perfectly fine Pixel 4 XL. We will see.
  • I had a 4xl and loved that phone. Only reason I go rid of it was because of 5g. I wanted 5g not because of its speed, but because of its reliability in my location. I have an s21 which is also a fantastic phone. I want the base pixel 6 because I enjoy the stock android experience. So far in the images the pixel 6 does not look like an as attractive phone as the s21, so we will see.
  • I couldn't stand the pixel 4 XL because too many of my apps supported fingerprint sensors but not the pixel 4 exclusive face unlock. I hate typing pins or passwords.
    I need a fingerprint sensor. I'm still using a Pixel 3 XL
  • that was an issue only for the first couple of months. Every app I use today accepts the face unlock. It's part of google's updated biometrics api. If you support one, you support both.
  • I didn't hear an "EXACT" price but a lot of speculation from someone trying to make $$ on a You Tube video. However, 5G means nothing to me and where I live, chances are in my home location, it means absolutely nothing for a long time. Guess I'll hang on to my 4XL longer than anticipated. But times change, besides, still would not make a decision until I read up on the S22.
