• The Pixel 8 received a listing on the Wireless Power Consortium’s (WPC) website.
  • The listing sheds light on the phone’s wireless charging speeds.

We’re not expecting the arrival of the Google Pixel 8 for quite some time, but the device has already passed a key regulatory hurdle. This week, a new listing on the WPC’s website revealed core wireless charging specs for the phone.

The regulatory body’s listing (h/t 9to5 Google) suggests that the Pixel 8 (specifically model GKWS6) will continue using Qi wireless charging technology with a maximum wattage of 12W. Interestingly, this is the maximum wattage third-party chargers can push to current Pixel devices. Google’s Pixel Stand (2nd gen), can deliver up to 20W to the Pixel 7 and 23W to the Pixel 7 Pro. Google could well be implementing the same disparity with its forthcoming series.
