Google’s Pixel 9 will get its first render, appears to be like so much like an iPhone Specific Occasions

Must read

If Google sticks to the standard cadence of system releases, the Google Pixel 9 will come out in round 9 months. That is a good distance away, however nonetheless not so far-off that it might probably’t be leaked: the ever-reliable Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, has a set of Pixel 9 Professional renders up over at MySmartPrice. Often, these renders are primarily based on the CAD recordsdata that accent designers want earlier than they’ll start making merchandise, so whereas all the foremost parts ought to be right all the way down to the millimeter, the supplies, colours, and a few small particulars could also be speculative.

There are a lot of variations in these renders. First, the renders present a flat metallic band across the sides, making it look so much like an iPhone. Samsung additionally adopted this design for the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus, so everybody appears to wish to look identical to their greatest rival. This permits the back and front of the cellphone to be fully flat slabs of glass, as an alternative of the rounded glass again of the Pixel 8. The display can also be fully flat once more.

Check out the new camera bar design.
Enlarge / Take a look at the brand new digital camera bar design.

The opposite main seen distinction is the digital camera bar, which used to stretch backward and forward throughout the again of the cellphone, however now’s a floating bar that is not related to the edges. That makes the digital camera bar nearer to the Pixel Fold design. The Pixel Fold digital camera bar was a rounded rectangle, however it is a full-on capsule form, which, in these renders, follows the form of the digital camera glass cowl. In addition to the digital camera lenses, the bar has an LED flash and a second thriller sensor circle. On the Pixel 8, the circle beneath the LED is a temperature sensor. I really feel just like the temperature sensor has been both panned or forgotten about, so it would not shock me to see it lower, however the realities of the smartphone improvement cycle would possibly make it too early for that.

The report at MySmartPrice lists a “6.5-inch” show, however I do not assume that is correct. The listed dimensions, 162.7×76.6×8.5 mm, are mainly an identical to the present cellphone, 162.6×76.5×8.8 mm, so the display cannot be smaller with out a main bezel dimension improve that is not within the render. The report seemingly measures between the rounded corners of the show and will get “6.5 inches,” whereas the trade commonplace is to create imaginary square corners and measure between these. That measuring type would provide the ordinary 6.8 inches.

The base-model Pixel 9, with three cameras?!

The bottom-model Pixel 9, with three cameras?!

OnLeaks additionally has a set of renders for the base-model Pixel 9, which is over at 91mobiles. As ordinary, that is largely the identical because the Professional design in a smaller dimension with a number of costly objects lower. Often, the cameras get lower down on these cheaper fashions, both in quantity, high quality, or each. We do not know in regards to the particular person digital camera parts, however this render surprisingly exhibits three rear cameras, identical to the large Professional mannequin. The Pixel 8 base mannequin solely has two rear cameras. There’s additionally a thriller sensor beneath the LED flash, whereas the Pixel 8 has no further sensor. The cellphone is greater, too, clocking in at 152.8×71.9×8.5mm, whereas the Pixel 8 is 150.5×70.8×8.9 mm.

If we are able to speculate for a minute, a beefier base-model Pixel 9 would make extra sense in Google’s system lineup. The mid-range A-series Pixel line was majorly leveled up with the 2023 launch of the Pixel 7a, and we wrote that it made the base-model Pixel 8 really feel out of date. Each telephones have flagship Google Tensor G2 chips, 90 Hz shows, and similar-sized batteries, however the 7a was $100 cheaper, mainly killing any marketplace for the bottom mannequin Pixel 8. If Google goes to make the A collection that good, it will be higher to have the Pixel 9 be a “mini-Professional” mannequin, if that is smart: all the identical options and specs because the Pixel 9 Professional, however in a smaller physique. Google has to do one thing to separate the bottom mannequin from the A collection, and the higher digital camera array suggests Google goes down this path. That is how the iPhone works, in any case.

It feels extremely early to already be speaking in regards to the Pixel 9, however that is the second time rumors of the cellphone have hit our desk. The primary report was of a “Pixie” AI assistant Google is engaged on, which is able to supposedly be unique to the Pixel line.
