This is the time of year when you have to decide whether you’re gonna wait for the batch of the latest and greatest smartphones, or buy the old versions, often at a substantial discount.
So if you’re eyeing a Google Pixel, check out Google’s online store to find a number of solid discounts on all variants of the phone.
Both the 32GB and 128GB version of Google Pixel currently cost $125 less — $524 and $624, respectively. The Google Pixel XL is discounted by $200; the 32GB version now costs $569, while the 128GB version costs $669.
To sweeten the deal, Google is adding a free Daydream View (normally $79) with each purchase, though that’s only valid while supplies last.
The discounts are solid, but what do you lose by not waiting for the upcoming Pixel 2? According to the rumors, one variant will have a huge, edge-to-edge, 18:9 screen. The specs will likely be top-notch, though it’s quite possible that the new device won’t have a headphone jack, so if that’s an issue, the current Pixel discounts likely sound even better to you.
The release date for Pixel 2 is still up in the air, though an October launch is likely.
