It's Halloween, and the treats just keep coming from Google.
The search company unveiled the Nexus 5 flagship and Android 4.4: KitKat this morning, and now it's given word of a new Nexus wireless charger as well.
Google's new wireless charging pad is officially compatible with the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, though as a Qi charger it should also be compatible with devices like the Nexus 4 and even some Nokia devices.
But the new Google wireless charger also features magnets that help devices stick to it, a feature that only works with devices that also have magnets in them - currently that's only the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.
Square is the new circle
The new Google Nexus wireless charging pad features a redesigned look and feel that better match the aesthetic of the new Nexus 5 announced today.
The new charging pad is an upside-down trapezoid, a square that's wider on top, with a glossy black finish that looks like it might be slippery for devices without magnets in them.
Compare it to the Nexus 4's wireless charger, which resembles a hockey puck with sticky rubber on top.
The Nexus 5 and Nexus 7-compatible wireless charging pad is expected to go on sale today in the Google Play store, though pricing is still unknown.
We've asked Google to clarify some of these details and we'll update this article when we hear back.
