Google's highly anticipated Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones will reportedly receive a noticeable improvement regarding their wireless charging function, but the feature might only work with the latest iteration of Google's own wireless charger which is called the Pixel Stand.

Google Pixel Android Smartphone Rumor

Google's return to the high-end smartphone segment is imminent. While the announcement and release of the new Pixel 6 Android flagships is now expected to happen in either September or October, another leak sheds some light on a welcome improvement in the wireless charging capabilities of Google's latest mobile devices. According to an exclusive report by Android Police, the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will support wireless charging at up to 23W.

This information is based on a leaked picture by an American wireless provider who has already started listing accessories for the upcoming Android smartphones. In said list, a new Google Pixel Stand appears and leaves little doubt that the Pixel 6 will receive this overdue upgrade. The product name that is listed above a credible SKU number indicates that the Pixel Stand wireless charger will operate at up to 23W. This would mean that the Pixel 6 could theoretically be wirelessly charged almost twice as fast as its predecessors, which were limited to wireless charging at 12W.

With only 10W, the original Pixel Stand (from US$35 on Amazon) was even slower than that. With fast wireless charging at up to 23W, Google is following suit in order to compete with other Android manufacturers. It easily surpasses the current iPhones, which can only be wirelessly charged at 15W with Apple's specific MagSafe charger. However, in comparison to its Android competitors, Google is still way behind the much advanced wireless charging capabilities of 50W and more, which are offered by several Chinese brands like OnePlus and Xiaomi.
