American tech giant Google’s upcoming Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro could reportedly offer 33W fast charging support.

The two phones were introduced earlier this month where Google revealed some information about them. Soon after it was rumored that the Pixel 6 series would ship without a charging brick. The Pixel 6 series will launch this fall and come at premium pricing with flagship specifications.

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro could offer 33W wired fast charging, as per a report. This would be a welcome shift, given Google smartphones have relied on 18W charging for a long time. Chinese producers, on the other hand, are stepping up their game with 65W and 120W charging.

The Pixel 6 series was revealed earlier this month, and it was confirmed that it would be powered by Google’s Tensor SoC. They’ll have the Material You design from Android 12. The Pixel 6 series also features a distinct appearance, with a projecting strip that runs the length of the phone and houses the rear cameras.

The Pixel 6 is reported to use a Samsung ISOCELL 50-megapixel GN1 sensor as the main wide-angle camera, according to recent leaks. Samsung’s Exynos Modem 5123 is claimed to power the Pixel 6’s 5G modem, which supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G. The Pixel 6 series will be released this fall, although no specific date has been set.

Furthermore, the source claims that the expected Pixel 6 Foldable has been postponed. There isn’t a lot of information about why it’s been delayed or when it’ll be released. But we can expect Google to give us a sneak peek of the device later at its fall event.
