Mere hours in the past some CAD-based renders of the upcoming Google Pixel 9 Pro had been outed, and now it is time for its smaller and extra inexpensive sibling to get the very same remedy. Women and gents, meet the Google Pixel 9.
Proper off the bat, one factor clearly stands out. In contrast to the Pixel 8, the Pixel 9 has three cameras on the rear, one among which clearly has a periscope zoom lens. This can be a enormous replace for the ‘vanilla’ Pixel line, and one which brings it way more in tune with the Professional, spec-wise.
Shifting on, the opposite apparent factor is that Google has additionally been infested by the ‘flat sides’ illness began by Apple some time in the past. Gone is the curved body of the Pixel 8, in is the iPhone-like flatness. We do not particularly thoughts if a body is flat or not, however we do really feel the necessity to level out that each firm doing the identical factor is simply… boring and repetitive?
Anyway, the digital camera island is completely different too. It is not spilling into the body.

It simply does not finish within the body, it now ends close to it. It additionally appears to be made out of metallic as earlier than. Whereas it isn’t similar to what we have seen in earlier Pixels, this clearly nonetheless makes the telephone recognizable as a Pixel.
Over on the entrance, you may see the body resulting from its flatness. The display bezels appear to be completely symmetrical which could be very welcome, and within the high center part of the display there is a single hole-punch cutout for the selfie digital camera.
In keeping with the supply of those renders, the Pixel 9 will measure 152.8 x 71.9 x 8.5 mm (whereas the digital camera bump will take the thickness to 12 mm). That makes it marginally taller, wider, and slimmer than its predecessor. It is anticipated to sport a 6.1-inch display, which is smaller than the Pixel 8’s however may need a barely completely different side ratio.
No different particulars concerning the Pixel 9 are identified but, however that is not an enormous downside contemplating it is solely anticipated to change into official in about eight months. Certainly by then we’ll have been drowning in leaks for some time, because it all the time occurs with Pixels. Keep tuned and we’ll let you already know after we discover out extra.
