Thread: Pixel 3 may have wireless charging and Active Edge may return

    Pixel 3 may have wireless charging and Active Edge may return

    Earlier this week, some live images of a Google Pixel 3 XL prototype leaked from XDA-Developers Senior Member meraz9000. He claims that when he squeezed the phone’s frame, it vibrated – which clearly indicates the presence of the Active Edge feature.

    For those who may not know. The Active Edge feature is a squeeze gesture on the Pixel 2 that lets you quickly summon Google Assistant, snooze alarms, or silence incoming calls. This gesture requires pressure sensitive hardware in order to work. Of course, XDA did some digging around the latest Android P developer preview for clues.

    In the SystemUIGoogle.APK, one component called “WakeMode” is what controls when a device is woken up. Basically, the components for Active Edge (Codenamed “Elmyra”) mention the Pixel 2 and 2 XL’s codenames, but they also mention two more: crosshatch and blueline. Crosshatch is the 3 XL (confirmed by the bootloader screen we saw in the leaked images) while blueline must be the smaller Pixel 3.

    Although this pretty much confirms that Active Edge is well on its way to the Pixel 3, there’s always a possibility of removing the feature before it is launched.

    In addition to digging around for Active Edge, evidence exists that the Pixel 3 might have wireless charging. A new set of permissions within the same SystemUIGoogle.APK file mentions two states: DOCK_IDLE and DOCK_ACTIVE. This code refers back to an app called “Dreamliner”, but the app doesn’t exists so it must be being tested by Google in a closed environment.

    Going back to what meraz9000 said about the Pixel 3 prototype, the back is actually made of glass. Rather than having a glass window like the past two Pixel devices, this one would have a glass back with two finishes. The ‘window’ would have the glossy finish and a matte finish would cover most of the rear glass.

    Just because the phone is made of glass doesn’t mean it’ll have wireless charging. But hey, all the pieces of the puzzle are here and we can only hope that Google decides to bring back the convenience feature. Wireless charging was a feature of the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 until it was dropped for the Nexus 6P and 5X.
