Developers have uncovered code in the latest preview version of Android P and the accompanying Google app that reveals the existence of the Pixel Stand. The new hardware from Google will accompany the Pixel 3 models on launch in Octover as an accessory designed to support wireless charging.

Google's next-generation Pixel Phones is all but confirmed to be compatible with wireless charging. The devices are already known to sport glass backs, which is indicative of support for wireless charging. Now code from the latest developer build of Android P and the Google App has confirmed the existence of the 'Pixel Stand,' which would be the first such accessory from Google.

The new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to be officially unveiled in the October, however, the designs have already been leaked. The Pixel 3 XL will sport a notched display, while the standard Pixel 3 will feature narrower bezels than its predecessor. The addition of wireless charging will put the devices on par with the competition from Apple and Samsung.

The Pixel 3 will center on a 5.4-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio that will help facilitate one-handed use for those who still prefer slightly more compact devices. The larger Pixel 3 XL will pick up a larger 6.2-inch display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. As with most high-end Android devices released this year, it is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
