Recently, Google launched the Google Pixel 7a at the Google I/O 2023. The phone was showcased along with other products and complete specifications. But one thing that wasn’t told is that Pixel 7a secretly supports 33W fast charging.
Here is everything;
Google Pixel 7a Fast Charging
On paper, the Google Pixel 7a supports only 18w of fast charging. But this Twitter user ‘@PMKphotoworks‘ shared a photo in which it clearly shows that the device is using 35W of power.

He used a cable which shows the voltage that a device is taking. This cable has been shown in many other scenarios where this is proven to be very accurate. So does this mean that the Pixel 7a supports Fast Charging?
People replying to the tweet were also very confused. One person straight-up called it fake.
While another person asked the OP how long was the device charging at 35w. To which he replied, “Stable at 23-24 now.” while sharing another image where the cable indicated the device charging at 24w.
Even at 24w, the Pixel 7a is still charging at speeds which are more than advertised.
Why wasn’t this advertised?
Almost everyone in the tech community loves fast charging, so why wouldn’t Google just advertise the fact that the phone can charge at 35w?
Many people predict that the cable is faulty. However this can also be a mistake from Google’s side, maybe the software of the device is unstable and it allows higher power charging when more power is available. This might get fixed via a future update. Or it can be that the unit received by the author is not in perfect condition.
But nothing is confirmed. As more information is shared, we will get to the bottom of this.
