If that’s enough to convince you to spend 80 bucks of your hard-earned money ahead of the holidays, you should know that the US Google e-store does not list a general shipment date for all early adopters, although most online reports seem to point to deliveries being scheduled for early to mid-December at the moment.
Coincidentally or not, this killer new deal happens to take place on the exact same day that the long overdue second-gen Pixel Stand is finally up for pre-order at an identical $79 list price with its predecessor. Although not necessarily sleeker, the upgraded wireless charger supports higher speeds of “up to 23W” for “compatible Pixel phones” like the 6 and 6 Pro, as well as maximum rates of 15W as far as third-party Qi-certified devices are concerned.
That means you’ll probably need to hurry if you want to receive this bad boy in time for Christmas… or settle for the original model, which is available at a whopping 63 percent discount with no strings attached or refurbished compromises while undoubtedly shipping much sooner than December 10, 15, or 20.
Obviously, you’ll have to be okay with lower speeds of up to 10W for your Pixel handset if you end up going the cheaper route, although on the decidedly bright side of things, the first-gen Pixel Stand is more than capable of turning your Google-made phone into a smart display of sorts as well. Pretty tough choice, eh?
