Google had introduced its new flagship smartphones in New York yesterday. The Pixel 4 series starts at $799 in the US, which is the same price tag that the Pixel 3 carried at launch. We cannot really say that the Pixel 4 is extremely affordable or anything of the sort, but it is cheaper than its predecessor.
That was actually expected in the US. What is surprising, though, is that the Pixel 4 series is considerably more affordable in Europe, in comparison with the Pixel 3 series.
Google was not expected to make the Pixel 4 more affordable than the Pixel 3 in Europe, not at all. Pretty much everyone expected the same pricing structure, but the company decided to change that.
It seems like Google is really aiming to boost its smartphone sales. Just to be clear, the Google Pixel 4 series is still not that affordable in Europe, as that pricing structure kind of balances out with the US pricing structure. It is a considerable improvement compared to last year, though.
The Google Pixel 4 is €100 cheaper than the Pixel 3 in Europe
So, how much cheaper is it? Well, the based Pixel 4 model is €100 cheaper than the Pixel 3 across Europe. That is not a small difference by any means, so European consumers will surely appreciate it.
Those of you who live in the UK are probably wondering if that applies for that region as well. Yes, it does. The price is converted to British pounds, of course, but it's almost the same as in the rest of Europe. The Pixel 4's pricing structure starts at £669, which is approximately €772. That means that the phone is a bit more expensive in the UK, but not much, and it's still much more affordable than the Pixel 3 was.
In fact, the Pixel 3 is still incredibly expensive in Europe. The phone is still available directly from Google, starting at €849. So, the Pixel 3 is still €100 more expensive than its successor.
The Google Pixel 4 with 64GB of storage is priced at €749, while its 128GB storage variant costs €849. The Pixel 4 XL, on the other hand, starts at €899. Its 128GB option is priced at €999 across Europe.
The device is a bit more expensive in the UK, than it is in the rest of Europe
In terms of the UK, the pricing structure is a bit different. The Pixel 4 with 64GB of storage costs £669, while its 128GB model can be purchased for £769. The Pixel 4 XL starts at £829, while its 128GB variant is priced at £929.
These two devices actually look the same. The only different comes down to size, as the Pixel 4 XL is a considerably larger phone.
Both phones are fueled by the Snapdragon 855 64-bit octa-core processor. Both of them pack in 6GB of RAM and come in two storage variants. Android 10 comes pre-installed on both phones.
The Pixel 4 includes a 5.7-inch fullHD+ Smooth Display with 90Hz refresh rate. The Pixel 4 XL, on the other hand, sports a 6.3-inch QHD+ Smooth Display with 90Hz refresh rate. If you'd like to know more about each of these phones, click here.
