A new report on the Pixel 8 family just came in, revealing the European storage options along with their respective pricing. We also get the color options. However, the bad news is that the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro will likely be pricier than their predecessors.
The price hike is quite significant if we are to trust the source, of course. The Pixel 8 with 128GB of storage will ask for €874 with 23% VAT, while the 256GB variant goes up to €949. The Pixel 7 at launch started at €650. The Pixel 8 Pro is rumored to launch at €1,235 for merely 128GB storage and will ask €1,309 for the 256GB iteration. The 512GB model will set you back an even heftier €1,461. For reference, the Pixel 7 Pro launched at €900.
Supposed renders of the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro
To be frank, these price hikes sound a bit absurd, so we take these findings with a healthy dose of skepticism.
The info on color options, on the other hand, seems trustworthy. The smaller Pixel will come in Hazel, Obsidian, Rose and Mint colors, while the Pro model has Bay, Obsidian, Porcelain and Mint paint jobs.
Some recent rumors regarding the duo suggest that Google is preparing a Night Sight video to complement the Night Sight for photos, so it will be interesting to see what Google has come up with. And the rumors about the phones being only eSIM turn out to be untrue, so the physical SIM card tray stays for now.
