Google Pixel 4 Supports EPP Wireless Charging for the First Time: Its Power Is up to 11W
The wireless charging function of the Pixel 3 series of smartphones released last year has been complained by many users. Because only by purchasing Google’s official Pixel Stand wireless charging stand, or a few third-party charging pads, can the Pixel 3 smartphone be wirelessly charged at the fastest speed. In the case of using an “incompatible” charging pad, its wireless power is only the standard 5W. The good news is that Google finally “fixed” this problem on the newly launched Pixel 4 series of smart bodies this month!

According to Mishaal Rahman of XDA-Developers, both Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL support wireless charging up to 11W.

This has been confirmed on the device page of the Wireless Power Consortium. To further confirm this, Mishaal Rahman also personally launched some verification.
It turns out that any Qi wireless charging board that supports high power output can wirelessly charge Pixel 4 with up to 11W of power-no need to buy Pixel Stand or other expensive Pixel certified accessories to enjoy this benefit.
It seems that, although Google did not publicize the Pixel 4 to achieve high-power wireless charging on a wider range of wireless charging pads, the company is also working hard to make Pixel 4 close to the performance of other Android flagship smartphones on the market.
Some people may think that the Pixel 4 is overpriced, but now it can at least save you the trouble of buying expensive wireless charging pads.
