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.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
