Unlocked US model Pixel will work fine in AU/NZ?

The model released for AU/NZ is GTT9Q but there's a parallel importer that's bringing in the GD1YQ model (which is obviously better because GD1YQ has mmwave) at a similar price.
They both have the same network bands and all (with GD1YQ having additional mmwave bands) I'm just wondering if they're set for slightly different frequencies that may hinder the connection in my country.
I'm in NZ specifically.

I am aware that it uses more battery and it's a short distance only thing but it's nice to have it and I can flex to my friends.

I hope someday you get to "enjoy" the Verizon experience. Be sure you don't accidentally buy the Verizon version if you want custom roms or kernels.
