Today brings us the first major smartphone leak of 2024, namely the Google Pixel 9 Pro. Expected to drop in October, the device has had it renders and a video published online courtesy of mysmartprice and OnLeaks. All the details are after the break.
First of all, the device gets rid of the Visor camera, opting for an oval module. Google launched the Pixel 8 series in October last year, so we’re in for quite the wait till the time comes for a successor. These CAD renders also show a flat frame here, much like the S24 and iPhones have. The screen drops from a 6.7 inch OLED panel on the Pixel 9 Pro to a 6.5 incher on the newcomer.
Still OLED, with a punch hole and apparently slightly bigger bezels. We’re expecting a Google Tensor G4 CPU inside and similar dimensions to the Pixel 8 Pro. Expect an 8.5 mm waistline and with the cam protrusion, it will go to almost 12 mm. Google keeps using an aluminum frame, but we could see a swap to titanium or stainless steel. IP68 certified of course.
There’s also a periscope back camera and what’s likely a temperature sensor below the LED flash. I’m expecting at least 5X optical zoom from the periscope back cam, if not 6X even. 8 or 12 GB of RAM are a given, plus 256 GB of UFS 4.0 storage and at least a 5000 mAh battery. The main cam has probably a laser focus mechanism and I’m curious about Android 15, that hasn’t registered any major leaks yet. AI will be at its core, I guess.
