Google’s next flagship smartphone, the Pixel 9 Pro, has been revealed in a series of real-life images shared by Russian blog Rozetked. The blog claims an anonymous source provided them with the images of the Google Pixel 9 Pro. These hands-on pictures give us our first detailed look at the rumored device’s redesigned hardware.

The leaked images show the Pixel 9 Pro sporting Google’s new design language, with a prominent oval-shaped camera bar housing three lenses, an LED flash, and what appears to be a cutout for a thermometer sensor. This camera bump departs from the previous “visor” style seen on older Pixels.

One image compares the Pixel 9 Pro’s size to an iPhone 14 Pro Max, revealing it to have a 6.1-inch display. Google is also expected to release a larger 6.7-inch “XL” model dubbed the Pixel 9 Pro XL.

The phone’s flat and polished aluminum frame is visible, complete with embedded antenna lines. It’s safe to assume that the frame would show a fair bit of smudges. So be prepared to carry around a microfiber cloth, if you’re brave enough to use the phone naked.

Other details spotted in the images include a USB-C port on the bottom edge flanked by a speaker grille on one side and a microphone/SIM slot on the other. The power button and volume rocker are located on the right edge.

Under the hood, the Pixel 9 Pro is tipped to pack Google’s latest Tensor G4 chip, a generous 16GB of RAM (up from 8GB on the Pixel 8 Pro), and 128GB of storage supplied by Samsung. Connectivity options are rumored to include Samsung’s Exynos 5400 modem with satellite support.

Google is expected to fully unveil the Pixel 9 series, which may also include a foldable Pixel 9 Pro Fold model, at its annual hardware event in October. Fans finally have an early glimpse at the Pixel 9 Pro’s revamped design ahead of its likely release in the coming months.
