Samsung and Apple went north of the $1,000 psychological milestone this year, and other companies feel like they can do it, too. Like Huawei and Google.
Huawei will unveil on October 16, in Munich, its new Mate 10 series, and one of its smartphones might be priced at over $1,000. But before we’ll see what Huawei has in store for us, Google might be the third smartphone maker to sell a smartphone for more the $1,000.
The company will unveil their Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on October 4, and the pricing for the latter one is showing that Google is testing the $1,000 threshold, too.
The latest rumors indicate that Pixel 2 will get a 64GB storage variant priced at $649, the same price as last year and an 128GB variant for $749. Color options will be Kinda Blue, Clearly White, and Just Black (photo above).
The Pixel XL 2 will get two color options Just Black and Black&White (photo bellow), and a 64GB variant at $849, while the 128GB storage variant will cost $949, which is $80 more the last year. So, Google just passed the $900 mark, but if they decide to go for a 256GB storage variant, as most of the other smartphone makers, it most definitely be priced at over $1,000.
