Yeah I saw that a couple days ago. I'm not feeling the need to upgrade from pixel 3 without that. 5G is still spotty so that's not going to do it for me.

Yeah, it's WiFi 5. Personality I'm just fine with that. The only advantage I see of WiFi 6 is better handling of high congestion areas which isn't a situation I find myself in that often.

I think wifi 6 isn't really relevant for most users in the next 1-2 years. Wifi 6 requires new hardware. So I guess this is ok... However it shows that the phone is pointing at mid class.

Do you know where wifi 6 is already available? And if only at home, do you need more transfer speed than ac? I can't think about a single use case for me as one who is using a nas for storage. So I'd rather save money on this

Don't get me wrong, your comment is absolutely valid, but if every vendor thinks like this we get new technology only when the old is dying and not when it's available.

WiFi 6 is one of the few things I think lacking in this device (assuming it behaves as expected). Its missing from all of the new products and I think they've missed a trick. More importantly, 5g without w6 breaks any kind of narrative about being up to date and at any forefront.
