Google Pixel 3 XL leaks keep on coming, this time confirming wireless charging support
Believe it or not, today’s the day yet another key Pixel 3 XL feature is revealed, thanks to the same Russian blogger who just completely blew the “notchy” handset’s cover, posting high-res hands-on photos of the device itself, as well as the contents of its no doubt legit retail box.
Unlike the original Pixel generation, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, and even Google’s Nexus 6P and 5X, the upcoming Pixel 3 XL does appear to feature wireless charging capabilities. A short video uploaded to Maxim Khoroshev’s Twitter account seems to confirm that beyond a shadow of a doubt, which probably means the smaller, no-notch Pixel 3 will also support the technology.
Almost certainly, that means the Pixel 3 duo will be glass-backed too, and rumors of an in-house Google Pixel Stand wireless charging dock a little while ago might start to gain traction as well.
It’s definitely worth remembering 2014’s Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 came with Qi wireless charging functionality. Unfortunately, the technology hasn’t made a lot of progress since, at least in terms of convenience, although Apple and Samsung appear to be taking it more seriously than ever. Google understandably doesn’t want to be left behind, clearly aiming to make the Pixel 3 XL a mainstream powerhouse jam-packed with high-end features.
