The tear down of the latest version of the Google app reveals a possible first look at the Pixel Stand. A brief animation within the app is currently hidden shows off a phone on a dock going through a slideshow of pictures. While it doesn’t exactly show all the details about the product, it does give brief details.
The dock will likely work when the phone is in portrait orientation; lining up with the earlier leaks. The animation further reveals that it will also include some sort of slideshow function; similar to Google Photos “Photo Frame” functionality on smart displays. Another animation in another version of the Google app teases a notification functionality. It shows messages, alarms, calendar notifications, and music. However, the exact functionality is still a mystery.
