Google launch event around the corner, and the firm is working out to launch the Pixel 6 series this month. However, another device that will launch the same day (most probably) is the Pixel Stand 2nd Gen. It is a wireless charging dock from Google for the Pixel 6 series.
Pixel Stand 2nd Gen – design.
The new Pixel Stand 2nd Gen will have a new design. This time, you will see a streamlined design instead of a floating type design. The stand will have a dual coil that will be in contact with the device. Out of these two coils, the top coil is meant for the smartphone itself, and the second coil is meant for the wearables like Pixel Buds.
Underneath, the stand will have a silent cooling fan to cool the stand when temps go up. It can be set to automatic or have a manual setup as well. Google will make this new case with 39% recyclable plastic, so it will reduce the plastic manufacturing for each device made. For the charging specifications, supported Pixels will get 23W of fast charging, whereas the certified Qi-compatibles will get 15W of fast charging. The Pixel Buds on the other hand will get just 3W of fast charging.
Pixel Stand 2nd Gen will feature a single USB Type-C port for power. The total setup will be in a small compact design with dimensions 82mm x 71.6mm x 113.9mm with a total weight of 383.6g.
