First, the basics: There are two phones, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The big news today is the price, which is lower than we were expecting: $599 for the Pixel 6 and $899 for the Pixel 6 Pro. Both phones are an incredible $300 cheaper than comparable devices from Samsung. The $900 Pixel 6 Pro spec sheet compares well to the $1,200 Galaxy S21 Ultra, while the $600 Pixel 6 lands somewhere between the $800 Galaxy S21 and $1,000 S21+.

Specs seem good, but that camera bar on the rear is really odd.

Clickbait aside, I would be fine with keeping a stable user interface and getting security updates for longer.

I did wonder what they were doing with the fingerprint sensor on the Pixel 6 (something I take for granted now on a smartphone), but apparently it's under display now instead of the rear.
