Google introduced the Pixel 8 smartphones just a few months ago, and insiders have already shown renders of the Pixel 9 Pro, which is due to be presented later this year. Reliable leak source OnLeaks has posted several renders online that supposedly show the flagship Pixel 9 Pro with completely flat edges that make it look like an iPhone.
This is not the only significant change in the design of the device. It looks like Google has also changed the appearance of the main camera unit. Instead of a wide block taking up a significant area on the back of the case, the renders show a convex oval block that houses three sensors. According to the source, the Pixel 9 Pro will come with a 6.5-inch display while the Pixel 8 Pro will have a 6.7-inch screen. Apparently, the Pixel 9 Pro retains the power and volume buttons located on the right side of the body. However, the SIM card slot has moved to the bottom and is located next to the USB Type-C port.
There is still no official information about the technical specifications and new features of the Pixel 9. Considering that Google usually releases smartphones in the fall, that’s not surprising. Google developers still have a lot of work to do to ensure that the company’s new smartphones stand out from the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S24, which is packed with artificial intelligence-based features, and the iPhone 16, which is expected to be officially launched in September.
