If you’ve been paying attention you know that this year’s Pixel 6 lineup will get a new Pixel Stand too. Some renders of the alleged wireless charger were shared online last week but now a new image comes to confirm the design and add a little bit more info about it.
The bulkier design is to be expected as it now incorporates a cooling fan to enable the faster charging. There are also two charging coils – one for the phone and one for a compatible wearable. The fast charging goes up to 23W for select Pixel models, 15W for Qi-certified wearables and up to 3W for the Pixel Buds.
The stand’s body is mostly TPU and plastic and is made of 54% recycled materials. The color options are Rock Candy and Fog. Devices that are native to the Stand, read Pixel phones, have deeper software integration and enable features such as Google Assistant visual spotlight, Photo Frame, Sunrise Alarm, media immersion, bedtime experience, home and media controls. The asking price in the US for the Pixel Stand is expected to be $79.
