New Pixel, Phone by Google now available to pre-order at Carphone Warehouse

London, 2016-Oct-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — The new Pixel, Phone by Google is now available to pre-order at Carphone Warehouse in stores nationwide and online. As exclusive retail partner, Carphone Warehouse is the only place to offer Pixel across iD Mobile and all major networks2, and on the widest range of tariffs. Pay monthly customers can pick up the Pixel, Phone by Google (5”) for an upfront cost of £79.99 and the Pixel XL (5.5”) for £159.99, both at £42 a month with 6GB of data allowance on Vodafone. All pre-order customers will receive a £50 ‘Google Play Store’ voucher to spend at their leisure.

Available from the 20th October, the new Pixel is the first device designed and made by Google, and boasts an abundance of exciting features. Most notably, it is the first phone to showcase Google Assistant, a personal, voice-controlled assistant providing smart, simple and intuitive experiences with every interaction.

Jeremy Fennell, Managing Director of Carphone Warehouse said, “Pixel encompasses everything we love about Google and brings more of our favourite Google tools to life than ever before in one device. This is a significant event in the history of mobile and we’re delighted to be the exclusive retail partner offering customers the best deals across all the major networks.”

It also offers free, unlimited storage with Google Photos for original quality photos and videos, so those non-stop snappers can rest assured that everything is backed up. The smart storage feature also removes old photos that are already backed up, so when users need more space, they don’t have to spend time deleting photos to make room. Plus, the main camera is 12MP with large 1.55um pixels, so users can take great pictures in any light condition.

With a smooth, sleek design, the phone comes in two sizes, 5” and 5.5”, and two colours: Very Silver and Quite Black.

Carphone Warehouse compares the widest range of tariffs on the market so is offering its Price Promise* to any new or upgrading customer. Price Promise means anyone who thinks they’ve found a better deal from either O2, Vodafone or EE on a Pay monthly or SIM Only plan, will have the deal matched by Carphone Warehouse and their first month’s line rental paid for free.

Sim-Free customers can purchase the handset from £599.99.
