- Google Pixel 6 potato chips were briefly available to claim in Japan.
- It’s just the latest early promotion for the company’s next flagship phone.
- There’s no word on if a similar promotion will be launched in the US.
Google is coming up with some new, and very cool, efforts to push its next Pixel 6 smartphones to consumers well ahead of the handsets’ official reveal. It’s already released a TV commercial for the phones. Today, its Japan office ran its own, and rather unique, promotion. It gave away Google Pixel 6 chips.
No, these were not the Tensor processors that Google developed for the upcoming Pixel 6. These were snack bags full of potato chips, with packaging that make them look somewhat like the design of the phones themselves. Google even posted a video showing people charging up and using the bags as if they were phones themselves.
Google Japan launched a web site to give away 10,000 units of its Pixel 6 chip bags. Those bags were quickly claimed by eager Pixel users (or potato chip snack fans, or maybe both). We are really, really hoping Google does something similar to promote the new phones in the US market. How about some Pixel pizza, Google?
