Google Pixel 6 Pro might actually charge faster than most Samsung flagships

Google looks set to give the Pixel line its fastest charging speeds yet.

What you need to know

  • New regulatory labels have been spotted, listing the charging speeds for the Google Pixel 6 Pro.
  • The labels show 33W charging is likely to be featured on the Pixel 6 Pro.
  • The Pixel 6 Pro is expected to feature a large battery, 23W wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging.

Anticipation for the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro heats up as rumors continue to swirl about the upcoming Android flagships. The latest tidbit appears to all but confirm the reported charging speeds of the Pixel 6 Pro.

XDA-Developers appears to have gotten their hands on a regulatory label for the Pixel 6 Pro from the National Communications Commission in Taiwan, which is its equivalent to the FCC in the U.S.

The label shows the rated charging speeds for the 6 Pro, listing 5V/3A (15W), 9V/2A (18W), 9V/3A (27W), and 11V/3A (33W). This would corroborate earlier reports that the Pixel 6 Pro may feature faster charging speeds than its predecessor, as first reported by 91Mobiles.

Based on this, it seems like Google's upcoming flagship may feature faster charging than many of the best Android phones from Samsung, most of which top out at 25W aside from a select few. It's not a huge lead, but every bit counts.

It's also rumored that Google is preparing to launch a new Pixel stand that would charge the Pixel 6 Pro at 23W. These faster would be helpful when trying to top up the phone's reported 5,000mAh battery.

That said, 33W wired charging is still roughly half that of many 2021 flagships like the OnePlus 9 Pro. Additionally, Samsung is reportedly increasing charging speeds in next year's Galaxy S22 series, so Google may not have a lead over it for very long.

XDA points out three models of the Pixel 6 Pro — GLU0G, G8V0U, and GF5KQ, only the first of which was certified by the Taiwanese agency. However, the other models will likely feature the same charging speeds. Between the three labels is a list of countries and regions such as the U.S., Canada, UK, European Union, Australia/New Zealand, Singapore, and Japan.

To the dismay of some, Google has already stated that it won't include a charger in the box, so you'll have to make use of adapters you may have lying around the house or check out some of the best USB-C chargers.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
