None of the Pixel phones launched to date support wireless charging, but neither the original Pixel nor the Pixel 2 models have glass backs.

The most popular add-on transforms Active Edge into the Edge Sense feature found on the HTC U11, introducing the option to remap the frame, letting users launch different applications by applying different levels of pressure to the frame.

At the centre is the circular fingerprint sensor. Last year's Google Pixel 2 received plenty of acclaim, even if they ...

At the time, it wasn't clear whether the phone will support wireless charging, as it wasn't clear whether the back panel of the handset is made of glass. That's good news for anyone that won't want to upgrade from their Pixel 2, even if it's a bit boring.
