The Google Pixel 8 Might Getting More Expensive

Early October, according to a leak, with a starting price of $650

One of the first queries was about Google Pixel 8: What will this signal for the remainder of the lineup? after Google introduced the Pixel 7a with a little $50 price increase in comparison to its predecessor. The Google Pixel 8 will see a similar price shift, becoming somewhat more expensive than its predecessor upon launch, if the most recent rumours are to be believed.

According to prolific leaker Yogesh Brar, the Google Pixel 8 will be on sale in early October for between $650 and $700, which is $50 higher than the Pixel 7 and depends on the storage capacity.

If this leak is true, it would represent the same price hike that the Pixel 7a experienced over its predecessor, maintaining the customary $150 price gap between the entry-level lineup and the top-tier device. Although it is unknown whether the Pixel 8 Pro will experience a comparable price rise, this fresh rumour suggests that it wouldn’t be shocking.

Historically, ultrasonic sensors have outperformed optical scanners, which are the only ones Google has employed in under-display arrangements so far. If the Pixel 8 gets an ultrasonic sensor, it’s probable that the Google Pixel 8 Pro, which costs more, will as well.

Take all of this material with a fair grain of scepticism since Yogesh Brar hasn’t always been the most reliable leaker. Nevertheless, what he said in his tweet seems feasible based on common sense and prior disclosures.

Google will probably make another significant release before the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro go on sale in October. Android 14 might debut some time in August if history is any clue.


Why is Google Pixel price so high?

We think the cost accurately represents the exceptional quality of our premium phones, the top-tier hardware specifications, and the industry-leading AI software experience. Google hasn’t yet disclosed where it makes its smartphones.

Why Pixel is not selling in India?

The Soli Radar chip on the front of Google’s Pixel handsets, which used the 60GHz frequency range forbidden for commercial use in India, is said to be the reason the company was unable to sell them there. Google later abandoned that function, though.
