Users would expect the release of the Pixel 6, which will have a 6.4-inch display but with the same camera arrangement as the Pixel 5. The Pixel 6 Pro, on the other hand, will have a 6.71-inch display that also comes with a telephoto lens to complement its cameras.

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021

Samsung plans to hold its surprise Galaxy unpacked event this week in what the company describes as an avenue to open up new experiences for self-expression through technology.
