Black Friday has come early for anyone in the market for a new Android phone, as Google’s Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are currently on sale at their lowest prices ever. If you’ve been eyeing these flagship smartphones, now is the perfect time to make your move as both models have seen significant price drops.
The Pixel 8 Pro, with its large 6.7-inch display, can now be yours for just $799 at various retailers. This is a $200 discount from its usual price, making it the perfect opportunity to score Google’s top-of-the-line Android phone for less. On the other hand, the slightly smaller 6.2-inch Pixel 8 is also on sale for $549, a $150 discount from its original price. Both of these prices apply to unlocked models with 128GB of storage, offering a significant amount of space for your apps, photos, and videos.
If you find that you need more storage, the 256GB version of the Pixel 8 is available for $609, another $150 discount from its usual price. For those looking to get their hands on the highest storage capacity, the 256GB and 512GB versions of the Pixel 8 Pro are both $200 off at $859 and $979, respectively. These deals are available for all color finishes of the two devices, providing an array of options to suit your personal style.
According to last month’s review by our team at Engadget, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro received scores of 90 and 93, respectively. Both phones feature a vibrant OLED display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, long-lasting battery life, and fast performance thanks to Google’s Tensor G3 chip. Additionally, they offer a clean take on Android and produce exceptional photo quality, with AI-enhanced editing tools to take your photography to the next level.
One noteworthy feature of the Pixel lineup is Google’s commitment to providing OS and security updates for a full seven years. With this long-term support, users can expect to receive consistent improvements and security features well into the future, making these smartphones a worthwhile investment.
While the Pixel 8 Pro offers a more advanced camera system with a sharper ultrawide lens and a dedicated 5x telephoto lens, as well as other premium features such as a brighter display and longer battery life, the standard Pixel 8 provides an excellent user experience at a lower price point. Both phones have been marked up by $100 compared to their Pixel 7 predecessors, but the current discounts on offer help to mitigate this increase.
For those looking for a more affordable option, the Pixel 7a is also on sale for $374, which represents a $125 discount and its lowest price yet. While it may not offer all the bells and whistles of the Pixel 8, it’s still a solid choice for Android users on a budget.
Furthermore, the sale extends to other Google products, such as the Pixel Buds Pro, which are available for $120, near their all-time low price.
