The first Pixel 9 Pro leak has surfaced, and the renders reveal a pretty drastic design change from the current Google phone.
There is a cutout to the left of the connector, nothing on the left side, and the mmWave antenna cutout is located on top. The power button and volume rocker are still located on the right edge, and Google appears to have moved the SIM card tray to the bottom edge to the right of the USB-C port.
The three cameras are once again positioned side by side and covered by an oblong piece of glass, while the camera bar—which is obviously modeled after the Pixel Fold—is a floating pill that is not attached to the left or right edge like on previous phones. The overall effect is a pill-on-pill design with extremely little bezels on the left side.
The camera system, which features a large circle between the wide and ultrawide lenses, has two circular perforations next to it; one is for flash, and the other appears to be a temperature sensor that Google is keeping from the Pro model from last year.
The Pixel 9 Pro, according to the OnLeaks x MySmartPrice article, would have a 6.5-inch display, which would be significantly smaller than the 6.7-inch panel on the 8 Pro. This is true even if the proportions are about the same as they were last year, which may indicate a screen size error.
- Pixel 9 Pro: 162.7 x 76.6 x 8.5 mm (12.0 mm camera bump)
- Pixel 8 Pro: 162.6 x 76.5 x 8.8 mm
The phone’s body is.3 mm thinner. Based on the renders, the display appears to be as flat as the 8 Pro’s, if not flatter.
This Pixel 9 Pro leak is happening two months earlier than the 8 Pro render. The design will definitely be compared to the iPhone, but it also has some Essential Phone-like qualities.
