So, the Pixel 8 series is out and about. What’s next? Well, we’re all curious about the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro. Recently, some CAD renders popped up that might give us a sneak peek into Google‘s design plans. But hey, don’t get too excited. These are just CAD renders, not official images from Google. So, the real deal might look like these renders, or it might not.
Now, even if these renders hit the bullseye, Google might still tweak a few things. So, what can we expect from the design? The Pixel 9 Pro is rumored to sport a flat display. The renders suggest that Google might ditch the current design of the Pixel 8 series. The phone’s frame could be a telltale sign of this. The corners of the frame seem slightly rounded, but the sides, top, and bottom look flat. In contrast, the Pixel 8 series has a slight curve on all sides of the frame.

Moving on, the Pixel 9 Pro might also feature a rounded, pill-shaped rear camera module. Or, it could be more squared off like the Pixel Fold. The front camera? It seems like Google is sticking with the hole punch design.
Now, let’s talk about the 360-degree video of the Pixel 9 Pro renders. It’s like a virtual tour of the phone. You can see the phone from all angles, thanks to OnLeaks and MySmartPrice. The video gives a better look at the phone, including the power and volume rocker buttons on the right side. No surprises there.
OnLeaks also spilled some beans about the phone’s specs. The screen size could be 6.5 inches, with dimensions of 162.7 x 76.6 x 8.5 mm. The phone might also have a telephoto sensor on the back. Google might release it in the latter half of 2024. That’s pretty standard for Google’s Pixel flagship phones. If they stick to the schedule, the Pixel 9 series might launch in early October and hit the market later that month.
Now, let’s dive into the rumor mill. The Pixel 9 series might support the Qi2 wireless charging standard and use a Tensor G4 chip based on a 4nm chip made by Samsung. Google might also be cooking up a new digital AI assistant for the Pixel 9 series, called ‘Pixie’. It’s rumored to be exclusive to Pixel phones and separate from Assistant with Bard.
And that’s all the tea we have for now. Stay tuned for more updates!
