According to M. Brandon Lee's early pricing information at Target stores in the US, the Pixel 6s could be priced at $599 and come with 128GB storage. The Pixel 6 Pro, which comes with 128GB, could cost $898. Lei shared a photo showing pricing on Target's shelves. Lee has images from the retailer's inventory system that show the same prices. The street date (aka the release dates) for both phones is October 28th.
Lee previously reported that the European starting price of the Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 6 Pro would be 649 and 899, respectively. WinFutures Roland Quandt discovered Amazon UK listings listing the 128GB Pixel 6 Pro priced in 849 with a November 1st shipping date. 100 extra could be paid for the Pixel 6 Pro with 256GB storage at 949.
These are the #Pixel6Pro and #Pixel6Pro prices that Target has provided in its US inventory system.

Google must be subsidizing this phone like mad. This is insane. #teampixel pic.twitter.com/OUBl8cXCBh M. Brandon Lee | THIS IS TECH TODAY (@thisistechtoday) October 18, 2021
These prices, if accurate, are far more affordable than we expected. This is after Google announced that it would be making an extremely high-end smartphone in August. Rick Osterloh, Google's hardware chief, stated that the new phone would be a premium product and suggested a price of more than $1,000. These starting prices are much lower than the $699 midrange Pixel 5 last year.
Google will announce its new smartphones at an event on Tuesday, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. These phones will be the first to use Google's Tensor processor and may support face-unlock and wireless fast charging up to 23W via a new Pixel Stand. They also come with five years worth of Android security updates. Many images have been leaked that show the phones in detail, including a close-up of their design.
