Pixel Stand may be a huge upgrade over its predecessor for the same price

New leak reveals the full specs of Google's upcoming wireless charging stand.

What you need to know

  • A fresh leak has spilled the beans on the specs of the second-generation Pixel Stand.
  • Google's follow-up to its first charging pad is said to be capable of charging the Pixel 6 at up to 23W.
  • The wireless charging pad may retail at the same price as its predecessor.

Google is just over a week away from unveiling the Pixel 6 series alongside the supposed next iteration of its wireless charging stand. A few Pixel 6 renders that recently leaked offered a first look at the new Pixel Stand, but its full specs have now surfaced online.

The latest information is courtesy of M. Brandon Lee, who shared two images that leave almost nothing to the imagination about what the second-generation Pixel Stand has in store.

Perhaps, the biggest upgrade to the charging pad is the 23W charging speed, which corroborates previous rumors. It may not be the fastest wireless charging speed available in the market, but it marks a major improvement over the first iteration from 2018.

Like some of the best wireless chargers, the next Pixel Stand may include an active cooling fan as opposed to the older model's passive one. The obvious advantage is faster charging speeds. The leak also reveals two charging coils, one for the phone and the other for a compatible Qi-certified wearable with 15W. It can also charge the Pixel Buds with up to 3W of power.

The body of the stand is being redesigned, and it appears to be bulkier than the first iteration due to the presence of dual coils. It's made of TPU and polycarbonate, with approximately 39 percent recycled material, according to the leak.

It will reportedly be available in two colorways: Rock Candy and Fog. In terms of functionality, the second-generation Pixel Stand retains the smart display experience of its predecessor, including support for Google Assistant visual spotlight, Photo Frame, Sunrise Alarm, bedtime experience, and more.

While those features are already present on the first-generation model, the upcoming accessory is said to support Google Meet calls. The best part is that Google will almost certainly keep its price at $79.

The hidden cost of food delivery

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
