Google in 2018 released a wireless charging dock for the Pixel smartphones, the Pixel Stand. And now, three years later, it is preparing to release its successor.
What we know
Our colleagues at 9to5Google noticed a mention of a new wireless device in the Android 12 Beta 2 code. The gadget is codenamed Luxuryliner.
The docking station may get a new look. In addition, the leak says that it will have a cooling system with coolers. What power the device will get is still unknown, but it will definitely be more than 10 watts. Like the original Pixel Stand model, the novelty will not only be able to charge Pixel smartphones, but also include special features. For example, weather display, schedule and more.
When to expect
There is no date for the announcement of the new Pixel Stand, but most likely it will be released along with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones this fall.
