In a much-anticipated announcement, Google has officially confirmed the forthcoming launch of its highly-anticipated Pixel 8 series in the Indian market. This revelation comes after the tech giant’s absence from the Indian smartphone scene for a prolonged period following the Pixel 7 series launch last year. Speculation had surrounded this year’s launch, given the mixed response to the previous generation Pixel 7 series in India. However, fans of the Pixel line can now rejoice, as the next-generation Pixel 8 series is poised to hit Indian shores. Here, we delve into the expected pricing and specifications of the Pixel series.
Anticipated Price in India
As per information obtained from industry insiders and reliable tipster Paras Guglani, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are slated to arrive in European markets with price tags that may leave enthusiasts bracing for impact. It’s crucial to note that prices in India typically enjoy a more favorable outlook compared to their European counterparts.
The Pixel 8 is rumored to have 128GB of storage and could be priced at around EUR 874, which is approximately Rs 78,000 with taxes included. However, without taxes, it may cost around EUR 710, equivalent to Rs 63,370. Typically, Google releases phones in India at their original prices, bypassing Europe’s tax system. Therefore, Indian consumers may expect the Pixel 8 to be priced between Rs 60,000 and Rs 65,000, but this is still speculative.
Pixel 8 Series Launch Details
In retrospect, the Pixel 7 series debuted in India with the Pixel 7 priced at Rs 59,999 and the Pixel 7 Pro commanding a price tag of Rs 84,999. These 5G-enabled smartphones were unveiled toward the conclusion of a global event. Therefore, with the impending arrival of the Pixel 8 series in India, all eyes are set on October 8 for the official pricing announcement.
For Pixel enthusiasts and tech aficionados alike, the anticipation continues to mount as the launch date approaches. Stay tuned for further updates on Google’s Pixel 8 series as we count down to its Indian debut.
