Google is preparing to renew its smartphone offering with a new model for its Google Pixel 9 range. We would now have a compact premium smartphone, like the iPhone 15 Pro!

Google is preparing to offer a more compact premium smartphone

For several years, Google’s smartphone formula has been very simple. Taking the example of the most recent batch, we have two premium smartphones; the Google Pixel 8 which sports a 6.2-inch screen and the Google Pixel 8 Pro, which is more imposing with a 6.7-inch screen. Their difference is not limited to size since the Pro model has a telephoto lens in addition to a wide-angle sensor and an ultra-wide-angle sensor, as well as greater battery life and 12 GB of RAM compared to 8 GB for the Pixel 8.

Until now, you had to turn to the large model to have the most efficient smartphone from Google, unlike Apple which offers both a compact format and an XL format with its iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. Something that Google is now preparing to change. Several leaks (in particular from Android Authority, MySmartPrice and OnLeaks) agree that there would be 3 versions of the Google Pixel 9 :

  • The basic Google Pixel 9
  • The Google Pixel 9 Pro, which would be smaller than the Pixel 8 Pro with a 6.1-inch screenbut with three photo modules at the back and more power than the Google Pixel 9, an equivalent of the iPhone 15 Pro
  • The Google Pixel 9 Pro XL would be even larger than the Pixel 8 Pro, which already measures 6.7 inches. It would even be even more “pushed” with in particular 16 GB of RAM.

This would satisfy fans of small smartphones looking for performance and especially the best possible photo aspect.

What we already know about the Google Pixel 9

There are still several months before the release of the Google Pixel 9, and while the Google Pixel 8a has just been revealed, rumors about the next generation of smartphones from Google are rife.

In addition to being available in 3 models, we would obviously have several improvements. To start with a new chip: the Google Tensor G4. Generally speaking, Google’s smartphones have always lagged behind mobile phones like the Samsung Galaxy S24 or the iPhone 15. And if we can’t imagine a Google chip competing with a Qualcomm or Apple SoC, things could change. The X Revegnus account reported that the Tensor G4 chip would be engraved in 4 nm according to the Samsung process. This would give us more power.

The Google Pixel 9 would not only be more efficient, but also best in artificial intelligence. It’s a safe bet that Google is focusing even more on the intelligent features of its smartphones. Enough to once again improve photo quality, in addition to very practical options such as instant translation, image search, etc.

The design of the Google Pixel 9 would also evolve with even flatter edges, but still rounded edges.

The I/O conference expected on May 14, 2024 will perhaps tell us more about the Google Pixel 9 range.
