While the Pixel 9 series is still a bit far away in terms of launching, that hasn’t stopped anyone from trying to find out what they can about the phones. In particular, we’ve already gotten an idea at what the Pixel 9 Pro might look like, thanks to some renders online.
The image renders are a collaboration between tech tipster @OnLeaks and the folks over at MySmartPrice, and show a design that manages to look both new and familiar. The phone still comes with the signature camera bar on the rear panel, although it adopts a look that’s more in line with the Pixel Fold, featuring a separate island rather than a window that melds into the side of the phone.
As such, there’s still a triple-lens setup on the rear panel, although it’s not certain yet if Google will retain the thermometer feature on the phone. Additionally the design renders show flat sides, a stylistic choice that we’ve seen on phones such as the iPhone 12-15 series, as well as the Galaxy S24 phones.
Just recently, it was reported that Google has began testing its Tensor chipset for the Pixel 10, which is expected to be manufactured in collaboration with TSMC, essentially moving the Tensor brand away from Samsung’s fabrication process. With that said however, the Pixel 9’s Tensor chip is still expected to be developed in collaboration with Samsung.
