If you’ve been holding out for a solidsince the launch of the series, Amazon may have just the ticket for you today. Right now, the retailer is discounting the previous-gen with a 256GB capacity by $279. That drops the price of this configration making this the perfect deal for those who don’t need the latest and greatest flagship but still want an with decent specs.
In, we found that the two phones aren’t all that different, so you’re not sacrificing a lot by going for the 2021 model. The Pixel 6 has a 6.4-inch display, slightly larger than its successor’s, and has the same dual-camera setup featuring a 50-megapixel wide lens and a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens. The battery of the Pixel 6 is slightly larger than the one in the 2022 model at 4,614 mAh for a battery life of up to 24 hours on a single charge. The RAM stayed the same at 8GB, the under-screen fingerprint sensor is still onboard, and the overall design language is similar, too.
If you can live without the Pixel 7’s improved front-facing camera and face unlock feature, the slightly speedier Tensor G2 chip and the under-the-hood zoom enhancements in the rear camera, it’s well worth considering the Pixel 6 instead. And, unlike many other Pixel deals, there’s no trade-in or activation required to qualify for today’s discount — it’s simply a direct price drop on the unlocked 256GB model.
