As the countdown to Google’s ‘Made by Google’ event on October 4 intensifies, a fresh leak has piqued the interest of tech enthusiasts. The leak hints at an enticing pre-order offer for the much-anticipated Google Pixel 8 Pro. According to the leak, customers who pre-order the Pixel 8 Pro are in for a treat: they will receive a complimentary Pixel Watch 2. While this leak has sparked excitement, it also provides insight into the upcoming Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro’s features, specs, and pricing.
Pre-Order Bonus: A Free Pixel Watch 2:
The leak, shared by tipster Kamila (@Za_Raczke), features an official-looking poster outlining the pre-order offer for the Pixel 8 Pro in the United States. According to this promotional material, those who choose to pre-order the Pixel 8 Pro can expect to receive a free Pixel Watch 2. However, details regarding any pre-order bonuses for the standard Pixel 8 remain elusive.
In terms of pricing, it’s expected that the Pixel 8 Pro will come with a price tag of $899 in the United States, while the regular Pixel 8 is anticipated to debut at $699. Meanwhile, the original Pixel Watch was priced at $349.99. Speculation is rife that Google will maintain a similar price point for the upcoming Pixel Watch 2.
