Google’s Pixel 6 series is coming in hot and the Pixel 6 Pro is shaping up to be a flagship phone to watch out for. The device is expected to land with many first-time Pixel features. For starters, Google is rumored to equip it with a custom chip codenamed Whitechapel. We recently learned that the new SoC might match the performance of the Snapdragon 870.
The Pixel 6 Pro is also expected to be the first Google phone with a triple camera setup, including a periscope shooter. It’s believed to come with a 120Hz QHD+ display, another first for a Pixel device.
Elsewhere, leaked renders of the Pixel 6 Pro promise a brand new dual-tone design. The phone is also rumored to house an in-display fingerprint sensor, yet another new hardware feature for the Pixel series.
With all this going on for it, we asked you, our readers, just how much are you willing to shell out for the phone. Here’s how you voted in our poll.
What would you pay for a Google Pixel 6 Pro?
The Pixel 6 Pro is definitely getting a lot of attention from our readers. However, only 6.2% of the total 6,980 voters in our poll are willing to pay upwards of $1,000 flagship rates for it.
Meanwhile, 13.6% of the voters are fine with spending just under $1,000 on the phone. About 15.5% said they’d pay $900 for it.
19.7% of the voters think that the price of the Pixel 6 Pro should be $700 or less and an almost equal number of voters won’t pay more than $600 for it.
KanosWRX: How much would I pay, up to $1K probably assuming it’s got a flagship worthy processor/ram/disk/screen, etc. If it’s another mid to mid-high tier like the Pixel 5 then no thanks. Also, a BIG NO if it’s a curved OLED screen like the old Samsung S series phones had for a while. God, I hated those.
Baconchalupa: I’m so here for this phone. But I am NOT here for curved displays! If this phone has a curved display, it’s a hard pass.
Palimatix: Pro will be flagship category and if it is you won’t hesitate to shell anything around $1K. The majority going for <$800 is a fantasy that it will suit the pocket. I, for one, have waited enough to get a worthy Pixel. I don’t want the sub-par Snapdragon and the same sensor as my Panda. I want it to pump up on all fronts that will last few years.
Patrick Mac: Google is a big company, but this Whitechapel processor could be a hit or miss. Even Samsung’s Exynos processors took time to tune. The processor might need special attention from developers in order to run some power apps and games efficiently. If they happen to launch with the Whitechapel on board, I wouldn’t exactly rush to pre-order, I’d first wait to see how they fare against the competition, and by competition, I mean the likes of iPhone 13, S22 Ultra, Xiaomi Mi 12, and OnePlus 10 Pro (If they maintain the naming). After all, the launch will be less than 3 months before the S22 is released and the price difference might not be that much.
Mark C Brantner: I’m hoping the Pixel Pro 6 is affordable, so I can upgrade from my Pixel 3 XL. I hope it has more memory than 128GB.
Nightfall: I would gladly pay over $1,000 if the build quality is excellent and the hardware features are on point.
