The news comes as Google gears up for the launch of the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL, which are expected to have a release date in October.
The original Pixel devices were unveiled in October and launched that month, and it’s expected that history will repeat itself this year.
Sources have told 9To5Google that the Pixel 2 price is expected to rise by at least $50, which would translate in the UK to around a £50 increase.
And it’s been rumoured that the Pixel 2 could be the first to feature the brand new Snapdragon 836 processor from Qualcomm.
It’s also expected that the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will drop the 3.5mm headphone jack.
That would mark a surprise U-turn for Google, who made a big deal out of retaining the 3.5mm headphone jack with the original Pixel.
They trumpeted as Apple decided to ditch the ageing port with the iPhone 7 Plus, which sparked controversy amongst some fans.
