Here's what you'll pay in Australia for everything Google just announced

Want to get your hands on the new Pixel phone or the Chromecast Ultra?

Google took to the stage in San Francisco this morning to announce a new range of Pixel phones. But wait, there's more! The search giant also unveiled a new, 4K-capable version of the Chromecast media streamer and the Daydream VR headset.

If you want the full run down on everything they announced (and the "Silicon Valley" cameos at the event itself), we've got you covered.

Wondering how much all the new Google goodies will set you back down under? Then read on...

Pixel and Pixel XL

The 5-inch Pixel and 5.5-inch Pixel XL (pronounced "pixelixel", I hope) will be available in Australia from Telstra, JB Hi-Fi and Google's online store directly.

Both phones will be available from Telstra in Very Sliver and Quite Black colour options. That's silver and black, if you didn't realise. To give you an idea of what you're looking to pay per month on a plan, the 128GB Pixel XL will run you AU$121 per month for 10GB of data, for a total minimum of AU$2,904 over 24 months. The 5-inch Pixel will cost AU$113 per month on the same plan, for a total minimum of AU$2,712.

JB Hi-Fi and the Google online store are offering the phones outright in the same storage and colour options. If you pick it up from either of them, you'll pay AU$1,079 (32GB) or AU$1,229 (128GB) for the Pixel and AU$1,269 (32GB) or AU$1,419 (128GB) for the Pixel XL.

Chromecast Ultra

The upgraded media streamer from Google comes with an AU$99 price tag in Australia. For that money, you get 4K and HDR picture capability. The company also said the product is 1.8 times faster and has improved Wi-Fi to handle the load of the bulky, higher-def streams. It also, blessedly, comes with an Ethernet port, so you won't be at the whims of patchy Wi-Fi.

The Chromecast Ultra will be available later in 2016, and it's also on the Google online store.

Daydream View

Google's new VR headset is set to leave Cardboard on the shelf. The cloth-wrapped Daydream still won't break the bank -- conversions put it at AU$119 -- and like the Samsung Gear VR, it needs a Daydream-ready phone to work. There's a waiting list on the Google online store if you want a prompt when it becomes available.
