Remember the Pixel 6 #flickergate? If not, you are forgiven, as the issue is just unfolding on several Pixel 6 Pro units whose owners are reporting a weird display bug that briefly makes the screen flicker when you press the power key to turn it on.
Since boot times on the phone are crazy fast, it might have something to do with reaction times when you tap on the power button and interrupt the sequence but in any case what you see below may be rather annoying if you splurged for the 6 Pro.

To its credit, however, Google is acknowledging the issue, and the ticket raised on its Community Support pages says it will be fixed with the next security update:
The good news? This means that the Pixel 6 series screen flickering is not a hardware problem but rather a software one.
The bad news? The next Google Pixel 6 security update is likely to arrive next month, so you'd have to wait a bit for the flickering issue to be fixed, if you have noticed it at all.
