Google Pixel 6

After much anticipation and several leaks, Google Pixel 6 is now official. The tech giant has introduced two new phones under its Google Pixel 6 series: the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. While the latter is the higher-end model starting at $899, the Pixel 6 costs a little less starting at $599. While the device will be available in select regions, we are unsure whether these devices see the light of the day in India given the history of predecessors. As of the time of this writing, the Pixel 6 availability is not included for India at least that’s what Google product’s page suggests.
