About a week ago, we learnt that the Google Pixel XL could be priced starting at $649. Turns out that was wrong. That $649 price point is actually for the smaller Google Pixel smartphone, or at least that’s what David Ruddock of Android Police is claiming in a post on his Twitter account (he also tweeted the previous rumor).
According to Ruddock, he claims that the smaller Pixel will be priced starting at $649 for the 32GB model, meaning that for larger storage options it would obviously be higher, and we can only imagine that the larger Pixel XL smartphone the price point would be more, possibly in the $700+ or even $800+ range, which we guess for Android phones is considered extremely pricey already.
However the good news is that in a post on Android Police, they have learnt that to combat this high price point, Google is expected to offer up financing options to customers, thus making it more affordable and accessible for customers who don’t have the heart (or money) to pay $649 upfront. We’re not sure what the financing plans will be like, just that they’ll be offered.
Take it with a grain of salt, but with an announcement set for the 4th of October, we guess we won’t have to wait much longer to find out for ourselves. In the meantime how do you guys feel about the price? Are they a little too prohibitive?
