Verizon leaks Google Pixel 3 pricing ahead of launch

After Canadian carrier Freedom Mobile inadvertently listed both Pixel 3 models on its official website — revealing their Canadian prices, color variants, and specs — now comes Verizon's turn.
Pixel 2. Verizon's new deal, if it is the real deal, also suggests that users will be able to nab a second 64GB Pixel 3 for free with their purchase. As is the case with BoGo deals, however, you'll have to pay the full price of the second unit up front and it will be refunded to you over the 24-month period of the contract.A new promotional page on Verizon's website suggests that the Google Pixel 3 will start at $799.99 for the 64GB version, which would make it $150 more expensive than the
The page on Verizon's website also has a "Pre-Order" button, though as you can imagine, it doesn't do anything yet.
Eagle-eyed Reddit users have also spotted a promotional page in the My Verizon app, which suggests that early birds will also get a free Pixel wireless charging stand upon pre-ordering one of the Pixel 3 models through Verizon's mobile app.
What's strange about these promotions, however, is the fact that both pages reference the Google Pixel 3 in text form, while all the images are of the Pixel 3 XL (and its glorious notch). This has caused some speculation online as to whether the $800 price tag isn't actually for the XL model. However, since that would make the Pixel 3 XL $50 cheaper than its predecessor, we're more inclined to believe that the images on Verizon's website are simply placeholders and that the non-XL model will be the one to start at $800.

@ahmadkun I will not watch the keynote. f**k them. the pixel 2 was 649$ at launch and now the pixel 3 is 799$ for almost the same configuration. we need to stop renewing phones every year because the prices are already ridiculous, we're making richer already rich shareholders.

Pixel 3's price justification will be Depending on camera performance. If they can give better performance than other 2 camera flagship phone then why wouldn't they charge the same?

For you google fans, “ dont be evil” my ass. They killed off the nexus line, changed their brand to pixel to justify doubling their prices for basically the same hardwares. At least apple has the decency to update all of their 5 year old devices. Im done with android

They think they can charge the same price as Apple but the build quality isn't even close to that level.
