Wireless charging isn’t anything new when it comes to Nexus devices, and Google-branded charging pads aren’t anything new either— the Nexus 4 launched with a dock/charger for the device last year.
But this year, Google has redesigned its wireless charging pad, changing up its design and adding magnets for improved device stability.
The charger is also glossy on top, and no longer features a sticky, dust-collecting rubber finish. The new model is compatible with both the Nexus 5 and the new Nexus 7.
It’s also expected that Qi-compatible devices will also work with the pad (last year’s Nexus 4), but only phones with magnets inside of them will actually stick to the charger.
The device should be available on the Play Store online today, but pricing and shipping availability information is not yet available.
