Listen up, Android users!

Just a few days ago, Google announced the new Google Pixel 4 smartphone. It’s the tech company’s latest and greatest offering, with a faster processor, thinner bezels, more screen real estate and the latest version of the Android 10 operating system.

While the Pixel 4 doesn’t hit stores until October 24 with a retail price of $799, you can save big on last year’s Pixel 3 model right now.

Every October, Google releases a new Pixel smartphone, which means previous versions go on sale to clear inventory to make way for the newest generation. So this year, we’re seeing prices drop on three Pixel 3 variants.

The tech company’s flagship model Pixel 3 (64GB) went down to just $494 from $799 — which is 38 percent off retail. If you want the larger Pixel 3 XL (64GB) model, the price shot down to $543 from $899. That’s 40 percent in savings!

When both models were released in October 2018, they launched at $799 and $899, respectively, so these are significant markdowns.

In fact, you can even find new and renewed models of 2017’s Pixel 2 starting as low as $215, but whatever version you pick up, you’ll get a great Android mobile device at a very low price point.

Unless you can’t live without the latest Android smartphone in your pocket, scroll down and check out the best Google Pixel deals below.
