Google unveiled its new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro flagship smartphones at the Made by Google event on October 4, 2023. The new flagship smartphones from Google bring a refined design, improved cameras, Android 14 OS, and a whole lot of new AI and ML features. The new smartphones from Google will compete with other top-of-the-line phones like the Galaxy S23, iPhone 15, and OnePlus 11.

However, Google increased the starting price of the Pixel 8 series, and the new smartphones start at $100 more compared to the same models of the Pixel 7 series. To sweeten the deal, Google is running an early offer program for the Pixel 8 series, bundling Pixel Buds Pro and Pixel Watch 2 for free with the pre-orders, and is also offering a new trade-in program where customers can receive surprisingly high prices for their old smartphones. Below, you can find the rates offered for various devices from Apple, Samsung, OnePlus and even Google's own older Pixel devices.

Kindly note that the following trade-in prices are current as of the time of writing. These prices are applicable for devices that are categorized as being in "Good Condition" with the highest available storage capacity.

When it comes to trade-in prices for the Pixel 8 series, it's not surprising that iPhones offer the best values— after all, Google wants you to switch to the other side. If you have an iPhone 14 Pro Max from last year, you could receive up to $750 for it. For iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14/13 models, you can get up to $560 off the Pixel 8 series.

It is, however, that Google is offering even more favorable trade-in values for the base iPhone 12 models (up to $450), which debuted in 2020, in comparison to the iPhone 13 mini ($270), released a year later. Even if you own an iPhone 11 from 2019, you can still get up to $400, which is a nice surprise. And, naturally, it's worth mentioning that the recently launched iPhone 15 series isn't yet eligible for the trade-in program.

Google is offering appealing trade-in deals for Samsung Galaxy smartphones, especially the S23 series from early 2023. If you own a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, you can get as much as $650 in trade-in value for the Pixel 8 or 8 Pro. Similarly, the S23+ and baseline S23 can net you a maximum trade-in value of $550.

Even the (almost) two-year-old Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, will get you up to $500 in trade-in value. However, similar to Apple iPhone 15 series, it is worth noting that Google is not accepting trade-ins for recently released Samsung Galaxy devices, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and even the mid-range Samsung Galaxy A54.

If you have a Google Pixel smartphone and want to switch to the Pixel 8 series, you can trade it in. But, it's essential to know that Google isn't offering high trade-in values for its own phones. The most you can get is up to $385 for the Pixel 7 Pro from last year. The Pixel 6 Pro also gets you the same amount. Additionally, it is worth noting that the Pixel 7a isn't part of the trade-in program yet.

Much like Google Pixel phones, trade-in values for OnePlus smartphones are on the lower side. However, what's intriguing is that the OnePlus 9 Pro can get you up to $200, while the OnePlus 10 Pro, which is only a year old, only provides a $104 discount. Likewise, the OnePlus 8 Pro offers up to $150 off, while the OnePlus 9 gives you just $72. What's more surprising is that the OnePlus 10T is missing from the eligible trade-in devices list. It's a bit unusual, isn't it?
