Google Pixel 9 Pro is an excellent phone for anyone who enjoys the pure Android experience and extra AI to boost productivity. The phone features an incredible zoom telephoto lens for stunning zoom detail shots and its camera app features make taking stunning shots effortless.
Leaked renders suggest the Pixel 3 will feature a flat display with slim bezels on all sides – this should come as welcome news to customers who disliked its distinctive camera bump.
The Pixel 9 Pro may soon receive a significant design update. Leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer of OnLeaks recently shared renders depicting a device with flat edges and an unconventional pill-shaped camera bar at its back; this marks an exciting departure from its previous iterations which featured more rounded surfaces similar to iPhones.
These new renders also reveal a triple rear camera setup. One sensor appears to be a periscope-style telephoto lens that could allow the phone to capture both wide-angle and telephoto photos simultaneously; two others likely serve as standard wide and ultra wide sensors.
Renders show that the Pixel 9 Pro will be smaller than its predecessor; its dimensions are estimated at 152.8mm by 71.9mm and 8.5mm thickness respectively – making it one of the thinnest Pixel devices yet!
Google’s flagship phones have long been distinguished by screen size, with the larger Pro model featuring a larger display and telephoto camera. But the company seems to be making changes with a more compact and portable Pixel that may appeal more. While larger displays are great for media consumption, many prefer smaller devices for their mobility and simplicity – it will be exciting to see how Google balances these different demands in Pixel 9 Pro.
The Pixel 8 Pro and OnePlus 9 both boast top-of-the-line cameras, although its low light performance may differ more drastically than you might initially suspect. But light capture and processing capabilities vary considerably between both phones. Both models do an outstanding job of keeping details crisp while keeping colors vibrant – though slightly ahead in one particular area: light capture with the latter having slightly superior processing speeds than its rival.
In bright lighting conditions, OnePlus may hold an advantage due to its larger image sensor; thus capturing more details than Google in equal time. But once lights dim down further, both devices start producing disjointed results; Pixel appears less adept at detecting edges and preserving details in the foreground, while it seems to apply too much sharpening; on the contrary, OnePlus appears not to apply so many sharpening steps on its final image.
It remains uncertain if the Pixel 9 Pro will boast any significant upgrades to its cameras. While its main sensor could remain similar, adding support for variable aperture would certainly be an upgrade. Ultrawide and telephoto sensors may see upgrades too; it is hard to tell without full renders from both 91Mobiles and OnLeaks that show what appears to be a flatter design similar to what Apple uses in their phones.
Google’s Pixel series has become a symbol of their commitment to technical innovation and user-centric design. Their phones are fast, feature outstanding cameras, and have earned widespread praise for their extended battery life.
Fans of the Pixel series are eager to see how its latest model, Pixel 9 Pro, may enhance its strengths. From larger displays, smaller Pro models or enhanced camera features – there is much anticipation and speculation regarding this year’s Pixel 9 Pro release.
One of the most exciting improvements could be an upgrade to Google’s custom Tensor G4 chip, which could dramatically increase performance compared with last year’s model. While Pixel 8 Pro already boasts powerful chips with multiple cores, other flagship smartphones may provide even greater gains.
The Pixel 9 Pro should see another major upgrade in terms of storage. While its predecessor offered up to 256GB, its capacity and energy efficiency still fall behind other phones in comparison. Rumors swirling suggest it will use upgraded UFS 4.0 storage which should boost both of these factors significantly.
Rumors swirl that the new Pixel Pro could sport a larger primary camera sensor with variable aperture lens capabilities compared to the 48MP sensor found on Pixel 8 Pro; this could provide more versatility when taking photographs from wide-angle and telephoto perspectives.
As one might expect from a phone bearing the word “Pro,” the Pixel 9 Pro boasts excellent battery life. Our PCMark work test showed it lasting almost 55 hours – an impressive figure among Android phones. In our GFXBench Manhattan battery test, its runtime reached 3.19 hours.
Its in-house designed processor and other software features should help increase power efficiency. For instance, Adaptive Battery monitors usage over time and closes off apps that are no longer necessary while keeping key ones running in the background for quick access. Furthermore, Battery Saver mode kills tasks and reduces screen brightness to save even more energy.
In our wireless charging tests, the Pixel 9 Pro was able to charge from empty to full in 1 hour and 40 minutes using its included charger, 30 minutes faster than its predecessor the Pixel 6 Pro and 30 minutes longer than average across our database. Furthermore, its residual consumption when unplugged was minimal.
The Pixel 9 Pro stands out as one of the few phones to support Qi2 wireless charging with fast replenishment speeds, meaning you should be able to use MagSafe-centric accessories such as stands or charging pads – an especially beneficial feature given that there’s no headphone jack available on it.
