Google’s Pixel 9 gets its first render, looks like an iPhone

Source : OnLeaks and 91Mobiles

Anticipation is building for the release of the Google Pixel 9, the next installment in Google’s flagship smartphone series. Following the typical release cadence, the Pixel 9 is expected to hit the market in around nine months. Although the launch is still some time away, leaks are already circulating, with renders of the Pixel 9 Pro surfacing on MySmartPrice, courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer, known as OnLeaks.

These renders showcase significant design changes, including a flat metal band around the sides, reminiscent of the iPhone and recently adopted by Samsung in its Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus models. This design shift results in a sleek, flat front and back glass surface, departing from the curved glass back seen in the Pixel 8. The screen itself is presented as entirely flat in these renders.

One noteworthy design change is observed in the camera bar, which now floats independently rather than spanning the entire width of the back. This design choice mirrors the Pixel Fold and features a pill-shaped bar housing camera lenses, an LED flash, and an additional mysterious sensor circle.

Despite reports of a “6.5-inch” display, the listed dimensions are almost identical to the current phone, suggesting that the screen size remains consistent. This discrepancy is likely due to the measuring style, with industry standards typically using imaginary square corners rather than rounded corners.

Additionally, renders for the base-model Pixel 9, featured on 91mobiles, reveal design similarities with the Pro model but in a more compact size with some cost-cutting measures. Surprisingly, the base model retains three rear cameras, similar to the larger Pro model, deviating from the Pixel 8 base model, which featured only two rear cameras.

In terms of speculation about Google’s strategy, a more robust base-model Pixel 9 could be a strategic move. The notable enhancements in the mid-range A-series Pixel line with the release of the Pixel 7a in 2023 may overshadow the base model Pixel 8. To distinguish the Pixel 9, Google might opt for a “mini-Pro” model, offering similar features and specs as the Pixel 9 Pro but in a smaller, more compact form factor.

While discussions about the Pixel 9 may seem premature, this isn’t the first time rumors have surfaced. Earlier reports hinted at a “Pixie” AI assistant exclusive to the Pixel line, adding to the anticipation surrounding Google’s upcoming flagship release. Stay tuned for more updates on the Google Pixel 9 as the launch date approaches.
