We've rounded up all of this week's best Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro deals just down below, including both unlocked and carrier options. While these devices are no longer the latest Google phones on the market, they're still great choices for 2023 and there are still quite a few retailers stocking them with respectable discounts. Note, however, that stock is starting to drop at some places now so we'd recommend picking up a device sooner rather than later if you spot a Pixel 6 deal to your liking.
With a striking new three-tone design, distinctive camera bump, and Google’s own new ‘Tensor’ chip, the Google Pixel 6 range was a real new direction for the Pixel series of smartphones when they debuted back in late 2021.
Retailing at $599 for the standard Google Pixel 6 and $899 for the Google Pixel 6 Pro makes them competitively priced too; much lower than the rival iPhone 13 or Samsung Galaxy S21 in fact. Google went in hard with an aggressive price point on these devices - fantastic news for both Pixel die-hards and curious newbies.
Both devices feature the own-brand Google Tensor chip, glass-backed design, and overall aesthetic but diverge quickly when comparing screen and camera setups. The standard Pixel 6 features a smaller 6.4-inch 90Hz display and dual rear camera setup, while the Pixel 6 Pro features a 6.7-inch 120hz display and triple rear camera respectively. The Pro model also features 12GB of RAM (versus 8GB), and an 11MP front camera that’s available of capturing 4K video.
We've broke down the best Google Pixel 6 deals and Google Pixel 6 Pro deals below, as well as a full specs breakdown and a mini-review of each device. If you're looking for a nice overview of the market as a whole, head on over to our main page for this week's best cell phone deals.

Google Pixel 6: $50 off with 12 mo plan at Mint Mobile
While you'll have to pay for a device upfront, the carrier Mint Mobile is offering a nice little price cut on a plan and device bundle right here. This is a pretty minor deal overall but one that's worth considering if you're interested in going prepaid. For context, Mint's plans cost anywhere between $15 to $30 per month and don't have any of those pesky contracts to sign so you'll likely save a significant amount in the long run.
Google Pixel 6 deals: what to you need to know
OS: Android | Screen size: 6.4-inch OLED (90Hz)| Resolution: 2400 x 1080 | CPU: Google Tensor| Memory: 8GB RAM | Weight: 207g |Storage: 128 / 256 | Battery: 4,600mAh | Rear camera: 50MP wide (ƒ/1.85), 12MP ultrawide| Front camera: 8MP (ƒ/2.0)
The Google Pixel 6 was 2021's flagship Android device from the tech giant and one that was set to make waves with its extremely competitive introductory price of just $599.
First up, if you were expecting a 120Hz refresh rate on the normal Pixel 6 then we’ve got bad news - it’s still 90Hz, just like on the Pixel 5. That said, a rather new fetching glass-backed design, a new processor, and key camera upgrades mean this standard device isn’t just an iterative upgrade over the previous generation.
By far and away the headline feature on the Google Pixel 6 is the own-brand Tensor chip - the first ‘in-house’ processor from the tech giant. While the jury’s out on whether it can truly challenge the lofty heights of the latest Apple A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 or Snapdragon 888 in the Galaxy S21, early signs are fairly promising, and hey - for $599 maybe this chip doesn’t need to beat the competition to offer a perfect alternative.
Having that new chip has its advantages too; namely improvements in computation photography. Google devices were already known for their snappers, but an improved sensor, stabilization, and range of powerful new photoshop-esque camera modes are set to take things to the next level for those who love those easily attainable quality images and video.
The Google Pixel 6 is available in three easy-on-the-eye pastel colors on the standard 128GB model - Stormy Black, Sorta Seafoam, and Kinda Coral. The 256GB models, however, are only available in Stormy Black and Sorta Seafoam at launch. Google has also guaranteed security updates for 5 years on these new devices.

Google Pixel 6 Pro deals: what you need to know
OS: Android | Screen size: 6.7-inch OLED (120Hz)| Resolution: 3120 x 1440 | CPU: Google Tensor| Memory: 12GB RAM | Weight: 210g |Storage: 128 / 256 | Battery: 5,000mAh | Rear camera: 50MP wide (ƒ/1.85), 12MP ultrawide / 58MP telephoto| Front camera: 11MP (ƒ/2.2)
The new Google Pixel 6 Pro is the bigger, badder, option of the two new devices and the ‘true’ flagship device from the tech giant. While featuring the same basic three-tone aesthetic and Tensor CPU as the standard Pixel 6, the Pro model isn’t just an upscaled version - it’s packed with a ton of unique features to justify its hefty $899 price tag.
Key upgrades on the Pro model include a 6.7-inch 120Hz refresh rate display (curved, no less) and the addition of a 58MP telephoto lens - a welcome addition for all those who value their mobile photography.
Another fantastic upgrade that’s going to keep vloggers especially happy is the new 11MP front camera, which can now record video at 4K resolution. To keep all those apps and photography computations zipping along nicely you’ll also get a significantly beefier 12GB of RAM in the Pro model - an amount that brings it into line with the top-end flagships from Samsung and OnePlus.
Put all these features together, and you’ve got one powerful flagship device indeed - and one that also looks rather fetching too thanks to its gorgeous new glass-backed case and uni-camera bump design.
The Google Pixel 6 Pro comes in two storage capacities - 128GB and 256GB, with varying color combinations for each. The 128GB version comes in Stormy Black, Cloudy White, and Sorta Sunny, while the 256GB only comes in Stormy Black at launch. As with on the standard device, Google has guaranteed software updates for 5 years on the Pixel 6 Pro.
