Google Pixel pre-orders on Verizon to get a free Daydream View headset

Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones' pre-orders are already open in the US, UK, Germany, Canada, and Australia. In the US, the Pixel smartphone's price starts at $649.99 (roughly Rs. 43,300), and, if users buy their Pixel smartphones from Verizon Wireless - the only US carrier to offer the smartphones - they get a $79 (roughly Rs. 5,300) Daydream View headset free alongside.

The bad news is that no such deal will be available for Indian users, reports NDTV. In India, users will have to buy the Daydream View separately, the India launch details of which have not been revealed yet.

In India, the pre-sale of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphone will begin on October 13 on Flipkart online, as well as other retail stores like Reliance Digital and Vijay Sales offline.

The smartphone is expected to hit the market sometime late October, and the prices are at - Rs. 57,000 for the 32GB Google Pixel, and Rs. 66,000 for the 128GB Google Pixel smartphone.

The larger 5.5-inch Google Pixel XL will cost Rs. 67,000 for the 32GB, and Rs. 76,000 for the 128GB variant.

In US, the free Daydream View VR headset offer is only applicable to Verizon Wireless buyers. In case Verizon runs outs of Daydream View headsets, users will get a $80 Via Prepaid card instead. To avail of the offer, users will need a redemption code, scored from the Verizon Daydream View page.
