Leaked prices for Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro show a 20% increase for EU buyers


Not long after the Pixel 8 leaked, something that has become a September tradition for the company, leaker @billbil_kun shared European prices for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. The price comes on the heels of another set of claims by The Tech Outlook on the costs.

The leaker contends that the prices published by The Tech Outlook are ‘totally wrong.’ Nonetheless, he suggests that the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will cost a bit more than the other Pixel lineup, except for the Pixel Fold, given Google held off on making price increases between the Pixel 6 and 7.

According to @billbil_kun, the Pixel 8 series will start at €799 for the variant with 128 GB of storage, a €150 and a 23% hike from its predecessor. Allegedly, the price gap will not exist for all Pixel 8 series SKUs, though. For instance, the 256GB version of the Pixel 8 is said to cost €859, about €110 and 14% more than the equivalent Pixel 7.

What the Pro will cost, and when will these phones arrive

As for the Pixel 8 Pro, you will need on the low end of €1,099, for which Google will only include 128 GB of storage. This year’s Pro version will allegedly retail for €1,159 if you choose the 256 GB option and €1,299 for the highest-end 512 GB SKU.

@billbil_kun says third-party retailers will only have the black version, with Google keeping the additional colors for its web store. The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are expected to arrive on October 4, during the Made By Google Event, alongside the Pixel Watch 2.

For the Pixel Watch 2, Google has added photos and teased details, saying it will come with personalized help, safety features, and health insights. It is assumed that Google will offer various pre-order deals for all its new Pixel products when they launch, although the form it will take remains to be seen.

What the Pixel 8 Pro looks like

If you haven’t seen the leaked images yet, Google seems to have accepted it can’t keep a tight lid on its Pixel phones and now provides a 360-degree simulator that allows you to turn the device over back to front and top to bottom, complete with indicators that point out where the sensors and ports are.

The simulator shows the phone in three colors and confirms that the Pixel 9 Pro variant will get a new temperature sensor next to the cameras on the back. Google did not share this information directly, as the simulator was found by X user José Rubén and highlighted by Mishaal Rahman, with no links shared directly by Google.

All you have to do is plug the new phone’s name into the URL of Google’s other Pixel simulators, which will show you the new phone. It is worth noting that the simulator only shows the Pixel Pro version for now, leaving room for more leaks in the coming weeks before the October 4 event.
