    Sucks to be you, but for the relatively few people who probably need a charger it's not really worth shipping a charger to everyone. Plus the carbon emissions to ship 2 separate deliveries to your house will be a tiny amount of carbon in comparison to manufacturing and shipping charges to everyone.

    I wish people would look beyond their own self-interest for a change.

    I'll give Google the benefit of the doubt until the phone's released but I'm expecting to read you'll need a Google branded charger to charge the phone at the fastest speeds.

    I thought Pixel phones used the USBPD standard?

    Apple use the USB PD charging standard too...

    Any USB PD standards compliant USBC charger will charge an iPhone at max speed.

    i guess this is based on the fast charging over qi that google require only their fast charger be used.

    Google usually release in October, and I’m not aware of any leaks suggesting it will be otherwise for the Pixel 6.

    It may well have been 5", but it wasn't the pixel 5

    It's likely to be the Pixel 6 Pro or the S21 Ultra for my next phone, so I hope the Pixel announcement is soon rather than into October.
