Where exactly is the charging coil located?

I want to apply a Magsafe ring that I have, I am trying to figure out where exactly on the back of the Pixel 8 is the wireless charging coil. Any help in finding that coil would help.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

On the dbrand website, their teardown skins have the coil pictured, it seems pretty close to the location of case manufacturers and I guess I trust their scanning practices
