The complete Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro announcement is little over a week away at this point, which can only mean one thing. New Google iPhone rivals are leaking like crazy, with insiders like Evan Blass and M. Brandon Lee threatening to expose every single detail before of Google’s supposedly glitzy October 19 product launch event.

Lee, who isn’t as well-known as Blass in the mobile tech leak industry, has recently shown his dependability in numerous videos on his YouTube channel This Is Tech Today. It’s part of a Twitter conversation that touches on many subjects, one of which is “sensitive” and ambiguous.

Or is it outrageously overpriced?

Well, it depends on what you consider a “wildly expensive” gadget. According to the latest rumours, the non-Pro Google Pixel 6 will cost $850 (Rs.64,000/-) in the US, which is expensive by cheap 5G smartphone standards.

Of course, the $700 Pixel 5 doesn’t readily fit into that category, and the 6.4-inch Pixel 6 5G looks completely different from its predecessor, at least on paper.

However, a significant raw power boost over the Snapdragon 765 SoC within the Pixel 5 is certainly in the works. Then there’s the new 50MP main back camera with a strong 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens and an arguably sleeker design.

In other words, it’s quite reasonable for Google to charge more than $700 this autumn, even if $850 seems a little much for the Pixel 6 lineup. That’s $50 more than the cheapest iPhone 13 model, and $100 more than the handset’s anticipated European price.

Aside from that, the €649 Pixel 6 variant rumoured for Europe does not feature the mmWave 5G technology required in the US to reach the maximum download speeds offered on networks like Verizon

There’s no new information on the Pixel 6 Pro, but it’s fair to presume the previously revealed €899 European pricing point will translate to roughly $1,100 US (Rs.83,000/-), which is likewise not ideal.

The unusual marketing titles of Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro paint treatments have been kept under wraps until now.

The 6.4-inch will be available in Kinda Coral, Sorta Seafoam, and Stormy Black. The 6.7-inch taking the latter and replacing the former two with Sorta Sunny and Cloudy White.

Google Pixel Stand, Pixel Pass:

The new Google Pixel Stand is anticipated to arrive in two colours. It cost $79, and enable wireless charging up to 23W. Enabling you to charge your true wireless Pixel Buds alongside your new Pixel 6 or 6 Pro.

Finally, Google seems to be working on a Pixel Pass-like package. It will include Google One, Play Pass, YouTube Premium, extended device warranty. Also (optional) Fi subscription for a monthly price.

That may make the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro pricing more bearable for die-hard Google fans. But it all depends on your monthly budget. So, there’s still some mystery, but there’s still time for the final questions to receive their own premature solutions.

Google Pixel Watch delayed?

The mystery Google Pixel Watch may be delayed, according to Max Weinbach’s tweet. It may be revealed during the October 19th Pixel event with a later release date, or it could be postponed till next year.

The Pixel Watch has been rumoured for years, with the sole leak coming from Jon Prosser in April. Prosser released pictures of the Pixel Watch’s design, revealing a sleek, rounded (no corners) appearance with a spinning crown.

The Google head of Wear OS engineering stated in an interview in 2018 that Google has no intentions to produce a wristwatch. “I don’t believe we’re there yet,” Barr remarked. Our current emphasis is on our partners. Then renowned leaker @Evleaks tweeted that the Pixel Watch is in development.

Three years later, we have a slew of conflicting disclosures. Earlier this month, @AppleLe257 tweeted that the Pixel Watch will be revealed on October 19th at the Made By Google 2021 event.
