Little disappointed to see that the official case doesn't smooth out the camera bump (though not really surprised considering it is their design choice after all). But I imagine this will be a popular request, so figured I'd get the ball rolling with a thread. Post your finds!

You can't "smooth" it out without increasing the overall bulk of a case.
What's the point?
At the same time the cam needs at least a slightly raised guard for proper protection.

I blew off the N20U because of this in favor of another N10+, to avoid Android 11 and other known issues.

I've been looking since I ordered. The Spigen Tough Armor comes the closest I've seen, so far, to having a flat back.
Good find, looks pretty close if you go on their main website (extra picture that Amazon doesnt have): https://www.spigen.com/collections/...6-pro-case-tough-armor?variant=40023033937967

Much more expensive, but you get a 30W charger for free until Oct 31. Not really a deal since Amazon is ~$20 less, but almost break-even with the charger.

Many reasons. For example. laying the device flat is important for some existing wireless charging mats. And if you own a Tesla that has something like that built in, it's not as easy as just getting a new one (might not be an issue with that specific example but we wont know until we get it).

This DBrand case looks like it completely hides the bump: https://dbrand.com/shop/grip/google-pixel-6-pro-cases

And their website is a hoot, too! They're very convincing with their light-hearted commentary on their products. Tempting; we'll see, I usually go with Otterbox Defender. Thanks!

In the meantime, I ordered two, one for myself and one for my wife, for now (able to return until 1/31/2021):

Myself - Spigen Tough Armor Designed for Google Pixel 6 Pro Case (2021) - Gunmetal

Wife - Spigen Slim Armor CS Designed for Google Pixel 6 Pro Case (2021) - Rose Gold

Also 2x Magglass Tempered Glass Designed for Google Pixel 6 Pro Screen Protector (2021) UHD Full Coverage Display Guard (Case Compatible)

We've both had Otterbox Defender on our phones starting with the Pixel 1 / Pixel XL 1, so I also signed up to be notified when each of these are in stock (I assume they're gauging how much interest there is): Otterbox Pixel 6 Pro Defender / Defender Pro

I'd probably buy the blue Defender, not the Pro, although I'd likely wait until I can get it on sale.

This is the one I ordered mainly for the kickstand though. I have one on my Pixel 3.

They have a good impact protection rating. Same composite design as the Zizo Bolt case with the polycarbonate retaining shell. This design can usually take a wicked multiple impact 2-4 foot drop onto concrete with zero damage and not coming apart.

I see someone else already mentioned the dbrand grip case, which I'll second. I don't have mine yet, but in my research it seems to be the best option if you want to fully eliminate the hump. But I do want to point out that there are a few other "special edition" options you can get that aren't directly accessible from the main https://dbrand.com/shop/grip/google-pixel-6-pro-cases link. You have to go to the separate section of the website to get them.

If you're really looking to hide the bump, I think the teardown one does a really good job.
