Google Pixel 6 Pro: 33 W wired charging confirmed, but there will be no charger in the box
XDA Developers has discovered another detail about the Pixel 6 Pro, having revealed numerous facets about the smartphone's SoC last week. This time, the website has discovered a listing for the Pixel 6 Pro on the National Communications Commission (NCC), the Taiwanese equivalent to the FCC. The NCC has only revealed regulatory labels, but one includes details about the Pixel 6 Pro's wired charging wattages.
As the image below shows, the Pixel 6 Pro supports 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 9V/3A and 11V/3A charging, which corresponds to 15 W, 18 W, 27 W and 33 W, respectively. Currently, Pixel smartphones cannot charge at faster than 18 W over a wired connection, which yields much slower charging times than many OnePlus, Samsung and Xiaomi smartphones.
Unfortunately, Google has confirmed that neither the Pixel 6 nor the Pixel 6 Pro will come with a power adaptor in the box. Hence, Google expects you to own have a charger that can output at 11V/3A, or purchase one. Presumably, Google will sell a 33 W USB-C power adaptor charger too; currently, it sells 18 W and 45 W ones on the Google Store.
Incidentally, the FCC has not published any applications by Google LLC since August, with documentation for the Pixel 5a 5G arriving a month before. However, the NCC's images confirm that Google has certified the Pixel 6 series under A4RGLU0G and A4RG8V0U. The latter application covers two models, G8VOU and GF5KQ, as far as we can tell. Ultimately, we doubt that it will be long before the FCC publishes Google's applications for the A4RGLU0G and A4RG8V0U, especially as the NCC has already.
