Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL: How to buy Google’s latest smartphones

The Google Pixel 3 is now available from T-Mobile and compatible with Visible

Google finally unveiled the new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL — the company’s latest and greatest set of smartphones, featuring an upgraded processor and improved internals, a new design, and more.

Now that the new phones are out, you might be wondering how you can get your hands on them for yourself. The phones are available in a few different colors, including “just black,” “clearly white,” and “not pink.” In case you’re wondering how to get the Google Pixel 3 or Google Pixel 3 XL for yourself, we put together this guide.

Unlocked

As you might expect, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are both now available for purchase unlocked through the Google Store. Here’s a rundown of Pixel 3 unlocked pricing.

  • 64GB Google Pixel 3: $800 or $33.29 per month for 24 months with Google Store financing
  • 128GB Google Pixel 3: $900 or $37.46 per month for 24 months with Google Store financing
  • 64GB Google Pixel 3 XL: $900 or $37.46 per month for 24 months with Google Store financing
  • 128GB Google Pixel 3 XL: $1,000 or $41.63 per month for 24 months with Google Store financing

The unlocked version of the phone is compatible with all major carriers — so if you’re on T-Mobile, Sprint, or AT&T, that’s how you’ll have to get the phones, considering the fact that they’re exclusive to Verizon.
