The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL available for purchase, and it will be available starting on Thursday, October 18th. Verizon is Google’s exclusive carrier partner for the Pixel 3 series. And it’s celebrating the occasion in a strange way: by charging customers $30 more for the Pixel 3 XL than other retailers.
Verizon has a lock on selling Google’s phone, so if you were hoping for the usual battle between US carriers to secure the best upfront offer for customers, that won’t be happening. However, the device itself will be unlocked to work with other major carriers like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and most MVNOs. Additionally, Google and Best Buy will be selling the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
The base model with 64GB of storage costs $799. For an extra $100, you can double the onboard storage. The Pixel 3 XL starts at $929 on Verizon.
