Google is finally bringing its flagship Pixel phones to India. The company has confirmed that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will also come to India. The official launch date is still unknown. The devices will make their debut in the global market on October 6, after which Google is expected to announce the price and release date for the Indian market too. Speaking of which, the prices of the Pixel 7 series have leaked online ahead of the launch event. Here's everything you need to know.

The Pixel 7 series will come with a starting price of $599 (around Rs 48,580), according to the details obtained by Artem Russakovskii, via Target's (internal) systems. The Pixel 7 Pro, on the other hand, is said to cost $899 (around Rs 72,910). The leaked prices for the Pixel 7 series could turn out to be accurate, considering the Pixel 5 series prices were also spotted at a Target store ahead of the launch and the details were right.

Besides, it seems that Google is planning to offer the new Pixel 7 series at the same old prices because last year's Pixel 6 series was announced at the above-mentioned prices. Now, what could be the prices in India? Google stopped launching its flagship Pixel series phones a long time back and the Pixel 3 series was the last one. After skipping, Pixel 4, Pixel 5, and Pixel 6 for the Indian market, it is now Google bring the Pixel 7 series here.

Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro: Price in India (Expected)

The India prices will likely be higher than the US prices, as was the case with the Pixel 6a smartphone. The Pixel 6a was launched a few months back with a price of $449, which is around Rs 36,417 in India when converted. But, the handset was officially introduced at Rs 43,999 in the country. This basically means that there was an increase of Rs 7,582 compared to the US prices. So, the same could happen with the Pixel 7 series too.

The leak claims the price will start from $599 in the US, which is approximately Rs 48,580 in India when converted. But, if we go by the pricing of the Pixel 6a, then the price could be around Rs 56,000. This will likely be the price for the 128GB storage model.

If we take a look at the Pixel 3 series, the price for the Pixel 3 series was $799 in the US, which was around Rs 59,200 in India at that particular time. But, the devices were announced with a starting price of Rs 71,000, which basically means there was a price increase of Rs 11,800 because of custom duty, GST and other charges. However, I do believe that Google may not increase the price by this margin, considering it used to sold the old phones at pretty high prices and this won't likely be the case in 2022. So, the price for the Pixel 7 could start from around Rs 56,000 in India, as the competition is now more fierce and Google is expected to price it aggressively.

Tipster Yogesh Brar suggested on Twitter that the Pixel 7 series could cost around Rs 50,000 or RS 52,000 with discount offers in India. This also suggests that the price should likely be under Rs 60,000. Similarly, the Pixel 7 Pro will cost $899 (around Rs 72,910). So, it could be priced at around Rs 80,000 in India.

Do keep in mind that all this is just speculation based on the phones that Google has launched in the past. The official prices for the Pixel 7 series will be out in October 2022.
