With Google’s highly anticipated Pixel 6 launch event set for tomorrow, we’re starting to get all sorts of last-minute details, including the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro price. A new leak suggests Google will offer these phones at insanely low prices and undercut both Samsung and Apple.
While we’ve seen leaks in select regions, those prices don’t always align with the U.S. market. However, this weekend we received two major leaks from Target, a massive U.S. retailer, suggesting the Pixel 6 will run $599, while the bigger flagship Pixel 6 Pro will cost only $898, which sounds too good to be true.

If the Pixel 6 truly costs $599 stateside, this will be one of the most aggressive prices we’ve seen this year for a high-end phone. As a comparison, last year, the Pixel 5 started at $699, Samsung’s current Galaxy S21 is $799, and the cheapest iPhone 13 is also $799, while the iPhone 13 Pro is $999.
More impressively, the leaked price of the Pixel 6 Pro suggests an $898 price at Target. Google’s Pixel 6 Pro is rumored to pack a massive 6.71-inch 120Hz HD display, triple rear cameras, including a 50MP primary camera, a large 5,000 mAh battery, and many other high-end specs. Specs and features that put it in the same category as the Galaxy S21 Ultra or iPhone 13 Pro Max — two phones that cost upwards of $1,099 or more.
These are only leaks, and pricing could vary by retailer. However, considering Target already has spots on the shelf and labels made lends credence to these reports. Either way, we’ll have all the details come tomorrow, October 19th, when Google officially unveils both phones.
As a reminder, we’re still expecting a Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro release date around October 28th.
