According to information shared by @MysteryLupin, the 256 GB Pixel 8 is priced at $759. This represents a $60 premium to double your storage, which is a more favorable offer compared to the $100 increase seen in previous years. This change seems to acknowledge the underlying increase in the base price of the device, and it will be interesting to see how consumers react to this adjustment.
Meanwhile, for the Pixel 8 Pro with 256 GB of storage, the price is set at $1,059. If you wish to go for the 512 GB option, it will cost an additional $120, bringing the total to $1,179. In contrast, Apple charges $200 to upgrade from 256 to 512 GB on the iPhone 15 series. These price comparisons highlight the differences in storage upgrade costs between Google and Apple’s flagship phones.
