- A new report suggests that Google’s Pixel 6 series could arrive with 33W support.
- That would be considerably faster than the company’s current benchmark of 18W.
- The report also alleges that Google’s foldable is delayed.
Google recently revealed the Pixel 6 duo to anticipate leaks. While we now know the fundamentals of phones, there are some details still slipping through the cracks. A new report has reportedly shed light on the charging speeds of phones.
According to 91Mobiles citing tipster Yogesh, the Pixel 6 series could support 33W charging. That’s a speed increase of about 83% over the current 18W standard used by the Pixel 5 and Pixel 5a. Notably, rumors say that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro contain 4614mAh and 5000mAh power supplies. Improving the speed of charging would be essential for Google to minimize uptime.
The report also suggests that 33W chargers have been tested at Google headquarters, but that does not indicate that the charger will be included in the cases of the phones. Google would have confirmed that the Pixel 5a would be its last smartphone to come with a charger. But if its newer devices support 33W speeds, it’s likely that users will need to budget for a phone. and an improved brick. Google says the Pixel 6 Pro will be an “expensive” device as well.
Google foldable delayed?
But what if you hold on to the rumor Foldable google? Well, according to the report, it’s delayed. Previous leaks suggested the foldable would launch in Q4 2021 with a 7.6-inch foldable display with Samsung providing the OLED panel and ultra-thin glass.
As we cannot corroborate these leaks yet, we suggest taking them with a pinch of salt. Yogesh has a fairly reliable track record, but Google has yet to confirm charge or battery details for either phone, and has not announced details regarding its supposed foldable.
Google has confirmed that the Pixel 6 series will debut in the fall, so expect a September-October launch for its new flagship duo.
