Google Pixel 9: Latest News, Rumors, and Everything We Know So Far

Google Pixel 9

With the Google Pixel 8 series still fresh on the market, anticipation is already building for the next generation: the Google Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and a potential third model. Although these devices are likely about a year away, development is underway, and early rumors are beginning to surface. Here’s a roundup of the credible leaks and speculations about the upcoming Pixel 9 series.

Expected Release Date

While there aren’t any specific release date rumors for the Pixel 9 yet, past trends suggest an early October 2024 launch. The Pixel 8 was unveiled on October 4, 2023, and the Pixel 7 on October 6, 2022, making an October release for the Pixel 9 highly likely.

Pricing Predictions

Pricing details for the Pixel 9 are still under wraps. For reference, the Pixel 8 starts at $699 / £699 / AU$1,199, and the Pixel 8 Pro at $999 / £999 / AU$1,699. The prices for the Pixel 9 series might stay the same or increase slightly, but they are unlikely to be lower than this year’s models. If a third Pixel 9 model is introduced, it could be priced around $849 / £849 / AU$1,449, fitting between the standard and Pro versions.

The Third Model

One intriguing rumor suggests a third Pixel 9 model that would have a screen size similar to the Pixel 9 but with the enhanced specs of the Pixel 9 Pro. This would mirror Apple’s approach with its Pro line, although without a larger non-Pro option like the iPhone 15 Plus.

Screen Sizes and Design Changes

The leaks about screen sizes are varied. One source claims that the Pixel 9 will retain the Pixel 8’s 6.2-inch display, the Pixel 9 Pro will match the Pixel 8 Pro’s 6.7 inches, and the new third model will have a 6.3-inch screen. However, reputable leaker Ross Young suggests the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro will have larger screens than their predecessors, while another leak points to the Pixel 9 Pro having a smaller 6.5-inch screen. Detailed renders suggest the new models might feature flat rather than curved sides and a redesigned camera layout.

Leaked Dimensions and Renders

The Pixel 9 Pro might measure 162.7 x 76.6 x 8.5mm (increasing to 12mm at the camera bump), similar to the Pixel 8 Pro. The standard Pixel 9 might come with a 6.1-inch screen, slightly smaller than the Pixel 8’s 6.2-inch display, but with overall dimensions of 152.8 x 71.9 x 8.5mm. Leaked photos corroborate these design changes and suggest a triple-camera setup on the back of the Pixel 9. 


Camera and Hardware Upgrades

Early leaks indicate the Pixel 9 will feature a wide and ultra-wide camera, while the Pro models will add a 5x telephoto lens, all with 50MP sensors. The Pixel 9 series is expected to use the Tensor G4 chipset, with all models starting at 128GB of storage. The Pixel 9 might have 12GB of RAM (up from 8GB in the Pixel 8), and the Pro models could have 16GB (up from 12GB in the Pixel 8 Pro).

Potential Battery Specs

Battery details are still unknown, but the Pixel 8 has a 4,575mAh battery, and the Pixel 8 Pro has a 5,050mAh one. The Pixel 9 series might have similar or slightly larger batteries, continuing the trend of incremental increases.


While much of the information about the Pixel 9 series is based on rumors and early leaks, the prospect of new features, design changes, and a possible third model adds excitement for Google’s next-generation smartphones. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the expected launch in October 2024.
