The Google Pixel 6 Pro price may give Samsung sleepless nights


Last updated: October 18th, 2021 at 13:04 UTC+02:00

There’s a lot to look forward to this week. Samsung has an Unpacked Part 2 event confirmed for October 20. It may launch new color options for its foldables and possibly new fashion collaborations for its wearables.

Samsung’s event comes a day after Google’s launch event for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro on October 19. There is a lot of hype around these devices. A leak has now revealed the expected Google Pixel 6 Pro price. Samsung won’t be happy about it.

Google Pixel 6 phones will undercut the Galaxy S21 series on price

Leaked Target pre-listings have been shared online. They reveal that the Google Pixel 6 Pro price will be $898 in the United States. This means that the handset will be cheaper than the Galaxy S21+ and the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Google will thus be able to undercut two of the best Samsung phones on the market. One can even argue that they’re the Android smartphones to beat in 2021. The $599 Pixel 6 is also going to undercut the Galaxy S21.

The new Pixel smartphones will have much to offer. These handsets will be the first to feature Google’s new in-house designed Tensor chipset for smartphones. We’ve previously detailed how this makes the new Pixel phones a threat for Samsung.

Combine that with a more competitive price and you’ve got a problem for the Korean giant. As if that wasn’t enough, Google is also going to obliterate Samsung’s edge in software support. It will provide five years of security updates for the Pixels and four Android OS upgrades.

The Galaxy S21 series is already on its way out, though. The impact on its sales may not be significant. It remains to be seen whether the new Pixel phones can hold a candle to the Galaxy S22 series due next year. They may remain a tough competitor for the Galaxy S21 FE that’s now expected to launch in January 2022.
