  • Google Pixel 3 Likely to Feature Wireless Charging

We can expect Google to comment on the development not before the Pixel launch sometime later this year.

The Pixel 3 leaks bonanza continues with new revelations about Google's next-gen flagship phones.

You might be wondering how the device supports wireless charging when it has a metal back. meraz9000 says what we saw is actually glass and not metal though it still retains the two-tone finish of the previous Pixel phones. This means we are still looking at relatively large top and bottom chins, though they do feature front-facing stereo speakers to make up for it.

Google Pixel 3 is one of the most anticipated smartphones that will be released by Google. There's a bit of a tweak to the feature, but it's still there, and it looks like it's going to be available on both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. The latest leak suggests that the Pixel 3 will be made of glass, which in turn hints at the presence of wireless charging support for the phone. These images were later looked at by the website 9to5google who confirmed a similar logo seen on the prototype images of Pixel 2 revealed by Google itself.

HTC introduced the squeeze gesture feature on the U11, which allows you to squeeze the sides of the smartphone to carry out different functions.

The art is based on a series of "real-life" Pixel 3 photos that a member of XDA-Developers Android forums leaked last Thursday. The other two are listed with codenames - crosshatch and blueline which are reportedly for Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 respectively.

Active Edge debuted on the Pixel 2 smartphones and lets you bring up Google Assistant if you squeeze the sides.

There is no guarantee that Active Edge returns on the Pixel 3 smartphones, however.

The images further show the rear panel which has the same Pixel smartphone patterns of the monochrome colour design with two shades of black.
