Android P Beta Hints At Wireless Charging For The Pixel 3

Android P Beta Hints At Wireless Charging For The Pixel 3

While wireless charging has become rather common in smartphones, Google for some reason has decided to not include it in its Pixel lineup of phones. However could the company be changing their mind with the Pixel 3? According to the folks at XDA, it seems that there is a possibility that they might.

According to the report, they point towards a set of leaked photos of the Pixel 3 which according to one of the XDA forum members, features a glass back. This means that there is a chance that the Pixel 3 could have wireless charging. However the use of a glass back could simply be for aesthetic purposes but in the latest Android P Developer Preview, XDA also found some code that hints at the feature.

Canon Unveils Ivy Portable Wireless Photo Printer

Canon Unveils IVY Portable Wireless Photo Printer

Wireless and portable photo printers aren't new. In fact Fujifilm might be a company that users might be more familiar with when it comes to such devices. However in case you're looking for an alternative, you might be interested to learn that Canon has recently announced their latest wireless portable photo printer dubbed IVY.

Wireless Android Auto Is Available For Google Phones

Wireless Android Auto is available for Google phones

JVCKenwood was a tad premature in announcing head units with wireless Android Auto given that phones weren't officially ready for it, but that support is finally here... more or less. Google has enabled cord-free Android Auto in vehicles that have an Android Auto Wireless-compatible infotainment system (built-in or aftermarket), but only if you have a relatively recent Google phone running Oreo – that means a Pixel, Pixel 2, Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P. Sorry, folks, your LG- or Samsung-branded phone will have to wait. You'll also need a USB cable for the initial setup, so don't leave the wire at home the first time around. Wireless, smartphone-based in-car interfaces have been slow in coming regardless of which smartphone you use. Apple's CarPlay has supported wireless connections for longer, but it's still not nearly as common as its wired counterpart. Still, this is an important step. Car manufacturers and electronics companies may be more likely to add wireless support knowing that there's a wider variety of compatible handsets.

Sony Unveils Trio Of Wireless In-Ear Headphones

[CES 2018] These days with smartphone makers starting to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack (there are still some holdouts, but we reckon it will become an eventuality), this means that smartphone users will probably need to start looking for wireless alternatives unless they don't mind dealing with a bunch of dongles.

The good news is that at CES 2018, Sony has unveiled a trio of wireless in-ear headphones that ranges in price points, meaning that you should be able to find a pair that suits your budget. However if there is a feature that they all share, it is that they have an IPX4 rating, meaning that they are essentially sweat-resistant.
