Much information has surfaced over the past few weeks about Google’s highly anticipated Pixel 6 lineup. Pretty much everything about the Pixel 6 series, including the camera specs, benchmark, CPU configuration, variable refresh rate, wireless charging speed, and even the cloth cases, has been leaked. Now one of the last pieces of the puzzle has also leaked.
According to the extremely reliable XDA developers, Google Pixel 6 Pro 33W offers fast wired charging. A new filing with Google’s Taiwanese regulator indicates that the Pixel 6 Pro can charge up to 11 volts and 3 amps. That means the Pixel 6 Pro supports up to 11 * 3 = 33W of fast wired charging. The report doesn’t reveal whether the standard Pixel 6 supports 33W charging or not, although XDA says, “It’s safe to assume they all support 33W charging.”
For comparison: Google’s Pixel 5 has an 18 W fast charge. 33 watts is a little less than twice the charging power, which seems to be a necessity at the moment due to the rumors about a powerful 5,000 mAh battery in the large 6.7-inch 6 Pro. Other Android flagships like the Galaxy S21 Ultra offer fast charging of up to 25W, while Apple’s counterpart is 20W.
Despite the support for fast charging speeds, you still need to buy a separate charging brick to take advantage of fast charging, as the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro don’t come with a charging adapter.
