Google paves the way for the wireless charging of the Pixel 3 XL

Fulfilling deadlines for the arrival of, the Google guys released this week theand that, in your code, it shows details of what could be Hidden news for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL , as well as for the final version of Android P that smartphones will debut ‘Made by Google’ .

Manyfor the dates we live, although it is true that it is a phone that is always expected a lot, even moreand manufacture it directly with Foxconn, in two flavors that have already been.

A smartphone that has everything to succeed but about which many unknowns still weigh, like a change of materials that would allow wireless charging and that the guys fromhave been commissioned to analyze in depth with a clear conclusion : the Google Pixel 3 will effectively feature wireless charging technology .

Suspicions are based on the materials of the rear casing of the prototypes sighted, which apparently it is not metallic as it happens with the Pixel 2, allowing the inclusion of the induction coil. However, we know that other devices such asopt for the crystal without having wireless charging, so it is the software that gives more credible clues about.

In fact, wireless charging would not be strange for Google, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and the Nexus 7 tablet already had this feature , which was lost in limbo with the arrival of the Nexus 5X of LG and Nexus 6P of Huawei, and also in successive … In addition, with Apple giving support on the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 , its incorporation is almost mandatory for Google.

Android P advances in the configuration of wireless charging cradles

It was the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean version that was included for the first time a different sound to differentiate wireless charging of the load by cables, so Google had to include in AOSP a section of code that would allow to differentiate the types of chargers to which the device was connected.

In Android P it seems that this section expands a bit under the heading of “Connected devices”, explicitly adding wireless charging cradles to the types of devices that can be connected:

Reference is made in various parts of the code to that service “Dreamliner” that seems to refer to wireless chargers , and that could integrate additional functions for the Pixel 3, suggesting that even Google would launch its own compatible charging cradles and is already testing them internally.

Obviously at the moment they are all rumors , although well-founded by the ‘Teardown’ of the developers ofto the code of Android P. There is no doubt that wireless charging is a widespread feature, and we do not doubt that his arrival to the last generation iPhone has given him that final push I needed the Qi standard.

We will have to keep an eye on all the movements around Google, as the rumor mill around the Pixel 3 will grow as the summer progresses and its official presentation approaches …
