Google's top Black Friday deal will be a $200 discount on the Pixel 4 and 4 XL
The Pixel 4 and 4 XL are not exactly the most innovative or feature-packed smartphones out there, but at the right price, Google's latest flagships definitely stood a chance to shine thanks to their top-shelf camera capabilities and squeaky clean Android experience maximizing the overall performance.

Unfortunately, the search giant decided to charge as much as 800 bucks for a 5.7-inch handset with 64 gigs of local digital hoarding room and a teeny-tiny 2,800mAh battery, while the jumbo-sized 6.3-inch model starts at a whopping $899 in the same disappointing storage configuration with a significantly larger cell under the hood. Fortunately, the holidays are right around the corner, and as recent history suggested, it was indeed foolish to buy the newest Pixels shortly after their commercial debut.

That's because a number of killer Black Friday deals are coming, including one straight from Google that was prematurely revealed in a banner ad seen by a lucky Redditor (via 9To5Google). The ad is unsurprisingly light on a few key details, like when exactly to expect the promo to actually kick off. What we do have is a December 2 expiration date that suggests the special offer will be available on the US Google Store throughout the Black Friday weekend.

That means you'll get plenty of time to score a stock Android-running device powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor at a substantial $200 discount. There's no reason to expect a smaller price cut for the smaller Pixel 4 model, so unless this turns out to be an elaborate hoax, the 5.7-incher should fetch as little as $599 in a few weeks, with the 6.3-inch Pixel 4 XL destined to go all the way down to $699 and up for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019.

Keep in mind that Best Buy is teasing pretty much identical deals for the unlocked Pixel 4 and 4 XL (with an additional $50 taken off the two's list prices if you're willing to activate them on select networks upfront), while Target is preparing to sell the divisive powerhouses alongside free $300 gift cards with qualified activations on Verizon or AT&T. So, no, don't even think of purchasing these bad boys right now.

The $200 off prices are the prices the Pixel 4 series should have launched at in the first place, considering what they lack.

Google's pricing policy is a shame. They are making Pixels be bought only by the "eilte" consumers. I still love my Pixel 3XL, but really, you launch a new product than in 1 month you give 20% discount? Ahhhhh, sometimes I feel a totally new mgmt needed in Google's hardware department.
