  • New Pixel 3 leaks: White color option and wireless charging accessory revealed

9to5 Google reckons there is a Pixel Stand accessory on the way with the release of the Google Pixel 3 and 3XL.

New alleged photos of the Pixel 3 XL suggest the third iteration of Google's flagship handset will not be much of a departure from last year's model.

But Google may have more surprises under its sleeve aside from the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. A couple of images have surfaced online claiming to show off the Pixel 3 XL in its "Clearly White" color. Shared by xda-developers forum user "dr.guru", the shots depict a device with an all-white backside that has a single camera, fingerprint reader, and a logo we've seen on previous Google prototype hardware. If the rumors about the Google-made Pixel Stand are true, this glass back could be used for wireless charging purposes. If the Pixel Stand is priced right and does indeed double up as a dock for the phone, it may well act as a middle ground between a phone and a smart display, especially when placed on a desk at home and/or work, hence negating the need to spend on two separate devices.

Earlier reports did say that the Pixel 3 phones will sport a glass sandwich design to support wireless charging. Presumably, there's nothing to stop the Pixel Stand working with any number of wireless charging Android phones - but we suspect it will have the "Pixel exclusive" label attached at launch. In 2017, Google opted to make the Pixel XL 2 in only two colour options: all black or a black/white mix.

Besides the obvious, the fastboot sequence reveals that the device in question is going under the 'crosshatch' moniker and has 4GB of RAM with 64GB of UFS internal storage.
