It seems that Google will release its wireless charging before Apple. In the network appeared the new image Pixel Stand, which, presumably, will be presented on October 9 along with smartphones Pixel of the third generation.
If you believe the image from the resource MySmartPrice, we have a render Pixel wireless charging Stand. Given the voltages stated on the stand, the power device will be 18W. It is also worth to note that Pixel Stand is powered via USB Type-C.
Earlier there were rumors that Google is preparing some soft chips that will be activated when setting the smartphone on the charging. For example, the smartphone can be used as a digital frame. In addition, will be available to extended notifications, and users will be able to use Google Assistant without unlocking the device – sort of a version of Google Home.
