Google is set to reveal all the remaining details of its upcoming Pixel 6 and 6 Pro tomorrow, October 19, during as scheduled event. Earlier reports had hinted that the phones' pricing was going to be more in line with other competitor’s flagship smartphones. The rumored pricing had the Pixel 6 starting at $749 and the Pixel 6 Pro at $1,049.


However, a leak on Twitter tells a slightly different story as far as pricing for the Pixel lineup goes. A post by Evan Lei shows a picture of price tags from a Target store. Those prices have the Pixel 6 with a cost of $599 and the Pixel 6 Pro showing for $898. These prices were said to be double-checked by Target staff and purportedly are in fact correct (we'll see).

Users will be able to use the new feature while viewing a 6.4-inch 90Hz FHD+ OLED display for the Pixel 6 and a 120Hz 6.7-inch FHD+ OLED display for the Pixel 6 Pro.
