Google’s anticipated Google Pixel 9 series is on the horizon, with rumours suggesting a release later in the year. While we previously heard hints of three models, the exact names were unclear.

Well-known leaker OnLeaks (Steve Hemmerstoffer) has now shed light on the lineup: expect the Google Pixel 9, Google Pixel 9 Pro, and the return of the Google Pixel 9 Pro XL.

Much of our information on the Google Pixel 9 series specifications comes from sources like 91mobiles and OnLeaks. Let’s dive into the details swirling around and what we know so far.

Google Pixel 9

As the successor to the Google Pixel 8, the standard Google Pixel 9 is expected to feature a 6.03-inch flat display, according to reports on 91mobiles. A dual-rear camera setup (wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses) mirrors its predecessor. Dimensions are rumoured to be approximately 152.8×71.9×8.5mm with a thickness closer to 12mm when including the camera bump.

Google Pixel 9 Pro

Don’t confuse the Google Pixel 9 Pro with a Pixel 8 Pro successor; this model takes a different path. Expect a smaller, more compact handset with a 6.1-inch flat display and the welcome addition of a telephoto lens to its triple rear camera setup. This model will share similar dimensions to the Pixel 9.

Google Pixel 9 Pro XL

Finally, the Google Pixel 9 Pro XL emerges as the true successor to the Pixel 8 Pro. It’s likely to offer a larger 6.5-inch display and a triple-rear camera setup that could include a variable aperture lens. Dimensions are expected to be around 162.7 × 76.6 × 8.5 mm.

Google Pixel 9 series Specifications

The heart of the Google Pixel 9 series is expected to be Google’s own Tensor G4 processor (codenamed ‘zuma pro’), offering modest upgrades over the Tensor G3. While exact memory and storage are unknown, faster LPDDR5X RAM and UFS storage are likely.

Support for Qi2 wireless charging (up to 15W) is anticipated, alongside a new ‘Adaptive Touch’ feature for enhanced touchscreen responsiveness. These phones will ship with Android 15, and may even support the operating system’s ‘Powered Off Finder API’ for location tracking when the device is off.

Google Pixel 9 Series Design Updates

Leaked information suggests a significant shift for the Google Pixel 9 series, with a move to a flat-edged design. The familiar visor-like camera module also seems to be replaced by a wider, pill-shaped design. The volume and power buttons will likely reside on the right edge of all models.

What We Still Don’t Know

Specifics on the cameras, battery capacities, and finer display details remain a mystery for the moment. Expect more information on the Google Pixel 9 release date and features to surface in the coming weeks and months.
