The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been thoroughly leaked already. You have already seen multiple renders of the upcoming handsets and today a different kind of render has appeared online. It shows us Google’s wireless charging stand for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL which may be launched as the Pixelstand.
The accessory would do what the name suggests. It will allow the handset to be rested vertically while it’s being charged wirelessly. The leaked render essentially confirms that unlike their predecessors, the new Pixel handsets will support wireless chargers.
The render shows that the Pixelstand will have an orange base with a Google logo on it. The hidden USB Type-C connector will provide power while the internal coils will charge a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL placed on it wirelessly.
The official wireless charger for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be a bit different from similar accessories as most charging pads have the device laying on top. The Pixelstand will have the device resting vertically on it as it’s being charged wirelessly.
A previous leak has revealed that there will be a custom UI for when the phone is placed on the wireless charger. It will have larger buttons for easy control in addition to shortcuts for music, phone, messages, and more. It will also allow for easy access to the Google Assistant.
Google is due to officially unveil the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL early next month.
