So many details on the next Pixel-series phones have been swirling around for quite some time now. And, the credit for this contribution doesn’t go to leaks and reports alone as Google has a big role in making things transparent at a very early stage.
Google disclosed the most about the handsets and some sleuths leveraged this opportunity so to look out for more information. Last week we got to know some potential features of the Pixel 6 Pro, thanks to a close investigation, and now one more key detail has surfaced. As per XDA Developers, a Taiwanese regulatory listing has revealed at least one model from the Pixel 6-series will offer faster charging.
The report refers to a past leak where it was uttered the Pixel 6 Pro will have 33W fast wired charging support but there wasn’t any proof on the same. Today, a piece of evidence has been spotted that adds much-needed concreteness to the story.
The listing shows the rated charging speeds for the Pixel 6 Pro – 5V/3A (15W), 9V/2A (18W), 9V3A (27W), and 11V/3A (33W). This clearly suggests the Pixel 6 pro will feature faster charging than what it used to offer. It is even faster than what most of the phones from Samsung support, which is 25W.
Past rumors have suggested that Google is also preparing to launch a new Pixel stand as well that would charge the Pixel 6 Pro with a 5,000mAh battery at 23W.
It is currently unknown if only the Pixel 6 Pro will get the charging upgrade or if the vanilla Pixel 6 will also support 33W charging. One thing that Google has made clear is that it will not ship a charger in the box. Google believes that people already have USB-C chargers lying around, so there’s no need to offer the accessory. This means you will have to shell out extra cash to buy the new fast charger from Google.
