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, however, 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.


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.


As mentioned, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are exclusively available on Verizon, meaning that you won’t be able to get them through any other carrier except Google’s own Project Fi.


The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now fully available straight through the Verizon website or in a Verizon store, so if you’re a Verizon customer or willing to make the switch, then you can pull the trigger now.

Here’s a rundown of pricing for the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on Verizon.

  • 64GB Google Pixel 3: $800, or $33.33 per month for 24 months
  • 128GB Google Pixel 3: $900, or $37.49 per month for 24 months
  • 64GB Google Pixel 3 XL: $930, or $38.74 per month for 24 months
  • 128GB Google Pixel 3 XL: $1,030, or $42.91 per month for 24 months

If you’re thinking about picking up the new Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL, this is the perfect time. Verizon is offering $400 of either phone with no trade-in required for Black Friday. The offer is available online now, and will be available in Verizon stores beginning Friday, November 23.

Google Project Fi

As you would expect, the Google Pixel 3 is also available through Google’s own Project Fi, and it’s available for the same price as it is unlocked — so you’ll save a few bucks through Google compared to through Verizon. When it comes to deals, Project Fi is also offering a $799 service credit when you buy two Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL phones and add a new member to an existing group plan.
