Google is reportedly working on Pixel Pass, a subscription service for Google’s most ardent superfans, according to Tech YouTuber, Brandon Lee. Based on the description of the alleged Pixel Pass, this is a fundraising option where Google offers users a fixed price to pay for a Pixel phone and a bundle of Google services at the same time.
The concept is reminiscent of both Apple One and Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Program, a service where Apple enthusiasts can purchase a bundle of all Apple services, from Apple News + and Apple TV to Apple Music. It would do the same type of thing, bundling YouTube Premium, Google One, Play Pass, Google Fi, and a Pixel phone to boot. There is also an extended warranty option with Preferred Care or Device Protection for those who want peace of mind. This will likely be an American exclusive, especially with the inclusion of a Fi subscription, but that has not been definitively confirmed.
As phone contracts have faded, Google’s Pixel Pass continues the trend for phone makers and carriers to offer financing for smartphone purchases, allowing buyers to spread their purchases over a fixed period. The promise and convenience of regular upgrades (provided an exchange is approved and completed) is also a lure.
The Pixel Pass isn’t the only Google Pixel 6-related leak to release this week. Lee shared other pricing information from retail sources, including a $ 850 price tag for the Pixel 6 in the United States. 6, the Pixel 6 Pro will be available in Sorta Sunny, Cloudy White, and Stormy Black.
An early release from UK retailer Carphone Warehouse virtually confirmed the phone’s key specs except pricing. The leaked website has since disappeared, but screenshots have been captured at the time, it remained in place.
Google will launch the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro at the Pixel Fall Launch online event on October 19, in just over a week. If there are any secrets left to be revealed, then we will find out.
