Last October, Google introduced the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, and now they’re gearing up for the Pixel 9 Series. Recently, CAD-based renders of the upcoming Google Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro have surfaced. Let’s take a closer look at the designs of these anticipated phones, but also make sure to check most compared Pixel Phones.
According to the initial CAD-based renders, the Pixel 9 Pro is expected to feature a slightly smaller 6.5” screen compared to the 6.7” OLED on its predecessor. Despite the reduction in display size, the overall dimensions of the phone remain similar, resulting in slightly thicker bezels.
Following the design trends set by Apple, the Pixel 9 Pro will showcase flat sides, and notably, this time, it will come with a flat display. The cameras are once again arranged horizontally, situated within an oval island in the design, departing from the previous spanning arrangement from one end to other.
The device maintains a slim base at 8.5 mm, but the bump, at its most prominent, will add nearly 50%, measuring 12 mm. While Google has traditionally used an aluminium frame, there are hints that the company might follow the trend set by Apple with the iPhone 15 Pro series and adopted by Samsung in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, possibly incorporating a titanium alloy.
Now, let’s talk about the regular Pixel 9. It’s also catching up with the trend, having flat sides. The camera island is different, just like the Pixel 9 Pro. Shaped like an oval, it doesn’t extend into the frame; instead, it stops near it. The material appears to be metal, as in the past. While it’s different from the Pixel 7 and 8 series, it still carries Google’s unique identity.
A notable upgrade for the Pixel 9 is the presence of three cameras on the back, including a periscope zoom lens— a significant enhancement for the regular Pixel line, aligning it more closely with the Pro model in terms of specifications.
According to the renders, the Pixel 9 is expected to have dimensions of 152.8 x 71.9 x 8.5 mm, making it slightly taller, wider, and slimmer compared to its predecessor. The phone is likely to sport a 6.1-inch screen, slightly smaller than the Pixel 8’s, with a potential adjustment in aspect ratio.
As of now, no other details are available for the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro. Since their official release is scheduled for October, there’s plenty of time for more information to surface, including leaks about the camera, chipset, and other features. We’ll make sure to keep you informed as updates come in. Until then use the Phone Compares engine wisely!
