Certification documents now apparently confirm an earlier rumor: The Google Pixel 6 Pro will be able to charge significantly faster than its predecessor.
- Document from Taiwan confirms faster charging with 33 watts
- At least the Google Pixel 6 Pro charge at this speed
- However, the charger is only sold separately
As early as August there was a rumor that Google could give its new Pixel smartphones faster quick charging. The XDA-Developers confirm this in a report with reference to the NCC in Taiwan, at least for one model.
Regulatory agency certifies faster charger
When 91 Mobiles leaked a few weeks ago that the new Pixel smartphones could be charged more quickly, this had to be taken with caution. Now, however, it is an official authority – the NCC in Taiwan – that has at least certified the new charger for the Google Pixel 6 Pro.
At the bottom of the label, you can see that the Pixel 6 Pro will support the following charging speeds: 5V / 3A (15W), 9V / 2A (18W), 9V / 3A (27W), and 11V / 3A (33W). However, this confirmation has so far only been available for the Pro model, so we cannot yet foresee whether all-new Pixel smartphones will support this charging speed.
A few weeks ago we reported that Google should also offer a new booth for faster wireless charging. Wireless charging should be possible with up to 23 watts. When wired charging is increased from 18 watts to 33 watts, Google takes a good step forward overall. Companies like Xiaomi, who have just presented the Xiaomi 11T Pro with 120-watt HyperCharge for Germany, naturally laugh at such speeds.
Charger not included
The fact that you get the Pixel 6 Pro delivered together with a 33-watt charger, however, can already be removed. Google has already officially confirmed that the charger will not be included in the scope of delivery for environmental reasons. If you want to benefit from faster quick charging, you have to purchase the charger separately.
The new Pixel smartphones are now just around the corner, so it won’t be long before we know all the facts about the Pixel 6 range. By then, at the latest, we will know whether the Pixel 6 will also support this speed and how expensive the charger will be. So always keep an eye on TechMarkup for the next few weeks, because here you can of course find out everything about the new Google smartphones.
