[Exclusive] Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro may support 33W fast-charging; foldable Pixel phone delayed

Google Pixel 6 will reportedly ship without a charger in the box.

Highlights
  • Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will have 33W fast-charging support.
  • Google is currently testing Pixel 6 flagships with the 33W charging adapter.
  • Google Pixel foldable project is said to have been delayed further. 

Google officially introduced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to the world recently and confirmed it would come with the in-house Tensor chipset. The flagship phones will arrive with a brand new design and in multiple colour options. And, while the exact launch date is yet to be revealed, the handsets may not be available in India, at least not in the first round. Now, while we wait for the announcement, 91mobiles has exclusively learned that the upcoming Pixel 6 phones may support 33W fast-charging support out of the box, courtesy of tipster Yogesh Brar.

This will be a huge step up for the Pixel phones but not compared to what brands like Xiaomi, Realme, Vivo, OPPO, and others offer with their flagships. Furthermore, Yogesh tells us that his sources at Google have spotted a lot of 33W charging bricks at the company’s HQ. However, those charging units are apparently being taken back as they’re only for testing purposes. This is perhaps because it is reported that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro won’t come with a charger in the box, following Apple and Samsung. This goes on to suggest that while the Pixel 6 phones will support 33W fast-charging as it’s currently being tested, the adapters need to be picked up separately once they’re on sale after the launch.

Our exclusive doesn’t end here. There have been multiple reports of the foldable Pixel phone in recent times. Yogesh citing sources in Google tells us the foldable project has been delayed. There’s no exact launch timeline for the same at the moment, but he tells us there are chances the Mountain view giant might offer a preview at the Pixel 6 launch event later this year.
