Google Pixel 6 price

Though the phone is likely only a couple months away, Google has yet to give a price for the Google Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. The most recent phone in this line, the Pixel 5, launched at $599 USD. However, with the fancy new Tensor chip, it’s likely that the Pixel 6 will launch at a higher price.

Google Pixel 6 Release date

Although Google just recently announced the Pixel 6, it’s unclear when the product will be released outside of its confirmed Fall 2021 window. Looking at past Google Pixel phones, they usually launch at some point in October. The only time a Pixel didn’t launch in October was in 2020 when the Pixel 5 released in September. It’s a safe bet that the Pixel 6 will drop in either September or October of this year.
