Of course, these prices remain unconfirmed. Google hasn't announced anything yet, and it's still a few months until the phones come out.

Aside from pricing, the report suggests that Google's next flagship Android phones will be available in a variety of colors. The standard Pixel 8, for instance, is tipped to come in Hazel, Obsidian, Rose, and Mint colors. Meanwhile, the Pixel 8 Pro is rumored to be available in Bay, Obsidian, Porcelain, and Mint colorways.
