For the longest time, Google (and its major US retail partners) kept the unlocked prices of the fall 2021-released Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro essentially unchanged. As recently as last month, for instance, Amazon was still charging a whopping $899 and up for the latter 6.7-inch model, never having discounted it by more than 50 bucks.
But then the jumbo-sized Tensor powerhouse was reduced to a slightly more palatable starting price of $799 pretty much nationwide in a completely unprecedented deal that predictably went away relatively quickly. Out of nowhere, Amazon (and only Amazon) appears to have bumped up that already attractive $100 discount to an outright irresistible 300 bucks for a presumably (even more) limited time.
If you hurry, you can get a Cloudy White-coated Pixel 6 Pro for an incredible $300 under its usual aforementioned price of $899 with 128 gigs of internal storage space. That equates to an absolutely massive and positively dreamy 33 percent markdown for one of the best phones out there, especially if you’re a fan of the stock Android experience.
With the other color options and the 256GB storage configuration all stuck (more or less) at their regular price at the time of this writing, we really don’t expect this amazing deal to last more than a few hours. Unless, of course, Google or Best Buy decide to follow Amazon’s suit with similar discounts of their own, which seems highly unlikely.
After all, the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are still several months away, and with this price cut, the Pixel 6 Pro is incredibly enough just as affordable as its non-Pro sibling while rocking a larger, sharper, and smoother display, as well as a bigger battery, and perhaps most importantly, a more versatile and overall better rear-facing camera system with a state-of-the-art 48MP telephoto lens capable of producing 4x optical zoom.
