    Okay, guys, it's officially January -- which means that hopefully before Fall, we'll hear about the next iteration of Pixel devices. I don't know about you, but I am so looking forward to this, as I have been with each new Pixel release since the 2 line.

    Has there been any news? Is it too early to tell? What would you like to see in the Pixel 7 line (and I hope there *is* a 'line', because I need a smaller phone!)?

    There maybe a possibility of a Pixel 6a coming to India in March. So perhaps that will be a phone coming to the rest of the world later. Could be the smaller phone for you.

    Even though I am most likely toting around my last Pixel; maybe Google should worry about getting the software right on the 6 series before working on the 7. Just a suggestion. And even though not everyone is having problems; or at least stating that fact, Google is admitting it has problems with downloads and that affects a lot of people; maybe not all.
    I may not have a 6; however, I sure wanted one, since I do prefer the pixel UI; however, I have no desire to test one where I live. But it is NOT totally ruled out. If the Jan update fixes the connection problems, and all looks ok from user reviews in Feb; might just order one to test where I live. Making sure to return if it is not good at connection or other functions I use.
    If not...a White S22U is on the table.

    A sub 6" option with most, if not all, of the internal "pro" specs.

    Hopefully at least one option that is less than 6" kind of like the Pixel 5. My wife wants to replace her Pixel 5 this Fall and likes the smaller form factor. And keep the pricing lower, like the Pixel 6 line.

    I wouldn't worry about it. I think there has been some jumping to conclusions or at least unfounded speculation.

    True. However, I would wonder if google would improve if they do release. Then again, google seems to release new items before they are ready for release.

    That small little hole does not bother me any more than the large area that was cutout on the 4XL.

    If it happens it happens. I just posted the info.

    I'm a person who may have used his selfie camera once or twice on my 4XL in two years. One of those times was out of curiosity to get a close look at my chin, to remove a piece of glass with some accuracy since I did not have a mirror handy. It worked pretty good.

    Make if a flat display as well.

    Google need to focus on quality. Hardware and software quality:

    Hardware:
    - The fingerprint sensor slow speed and inaccuracy is not acceptable for 2019, let alone 2021/2022. They have to use a better, faster, more reliable fingerprint sensor. Ultrasonic fingerprint sensors have been on the market for a while now - no reason not to use them.
    - Tensor runs hot, drains battery, doesn't seem to provide any tangible benefits in it's performance or unique features. I don't know why Google went with Tensor, especially when they're just using ARM reference design cores and aren't even designing it themselves. What's the point when competing processors are faster/more efficient?
    - Reception issues might be from the Samsung 5123 modem. If that is the case, then they should just pay the extra money and go with a Qualcomm modem.
    - Please, no more curved screens.

    Software:
    - Where to begin. Android 12 has just been a tragedy of errors. Extremely buggy, some really questionable/poor design decisions which make previously easily accessible/changeable things now take more time. This might be the buggiest Pixel release. Bug test thoroughly.
    - The camera tweaking needs to be significantly improved. It's very inconsistent now and I feel the camera on the previous Pixel phones were better; likely due to more time tweaking the image processing.
    - Bug test thoroughly
    - Video on the Pixel 6 Pro still isn't very good. I still prefer Galaxy's video recording and much prefer iPhone's.
    - Reception issues may be software related, so they absolutely need to make sure they have the settings right. A phone without the ability to make phonecalls is just a small tablet.
    - Bug test thoroughly

    I'd like these things addressed far more than some added gimmick. If users have so many issues and bugs in their experience, they're not going to be returning customers.

    Flat display....YES!
    Face Unlock?...Maybe, because there are some (not me) that like it. But why not go back to rear fps also? Offer both options. Rear fps is reliable and fast. Face unlock appeals to many. Why not give the people options?
