Android P code hints at wireless charging on the Pixel 3 series
As discovered by XDA Developers, various strands of code hidden within the new software suggest deeper wireless charging support is on the way. See, since Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the popular OS has supported wireless chargers in some capacity, but with the upcoming Android P release, it appears Google will be embracing the accessories further by creating a whole new category reserved expressly for wireless chargers within the “Connected Devices” menu. This assumption is primarily due to code that makes references to something called “dreamliner” along with various mentions of its wireless charging capabilities.
Currently, and upon inspection of the code, it’s clear that “dreamliner” isn’t related to anything that is publicly available at the moment but, perhaps more interestingly, is the fact that the code confirms that the product in question comes directly from Google and is designed to work specifically with a Google app. Now, due to its internal nature, there is currently no app available to download that would potentially allow for testing, but taking into account the various references to wireless charging and the fact that it only works when connected to Google’s own app suggests that “dreamliner” may well be Google’s own wireless charging dock that could be launched alongside the Pixel 3 series.
At this moment in time, this is simply speculative, but it's worth noting that the flagship devices aren't made out of a combination of glass and aluminum as originally thought. Instead, according to the source of yesterday’s images, it appears the smartphone lineup could feature an entire glass build, albeit with a frosted effect taking the place of last year’s metal portion, thus allowing for wireless charging support.
