    [Sorry Part 2] The New Nexus 6P And 5X Won't Have Wireless Charging Either

    According to the same trusted sources that we have been quoting all day, Google decided to skip wireless charging on both devices

    Not surprising with the metal case of the 6P.
    Probably kept it out of the 5X to keep costs down.
    Just my $.02

    This one is surprising given Google's push on this tech on previous devices - but as @VW Maverick said, obvious reasons are obvious.

    And here's why: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/commen...th_the/cvjjnp0

    HL> Thanks for being a Nexus fan! We added Qi wireless charging starting with N4 because plugging in USB micro B was such a hassle! (Which way is up!?) With this year’s Nexii, we support USB Type-C which has a reversible connector so there’s no more guessing. AND it charges incredibly swiftly: 1% to 100% in 97 mins on the 6P for example (the first ~45 mins of charging is especially fast). Meanwhile, wireless charging adds z (thickness). So, ease of plugging in + fast charging + optimizing for thinness made us double down on Type-C instead of wireless!
