Yesterday, Google unveiled its new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones, but that hasn’t stopped tipster Ross Young from sharing some information about the next generation of Pixel devices. Young, the founder and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, took to Twitter to reveal that the Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9a will have larger displays compared to their predecessors in 2023. While the specific screen sizes for the upcoming models have not been disclosed, it is expected that they will be bigger than those found on the Pixel 8 lineup.
Interestingly, Apple is also rumored to increase the screen sizes of its next year’s flagship iPhones. The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are speculated to feature 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch displays, respectively, up from the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens of the current iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. This increase in size aims to enable the iPhone 16 Pro to offer users 5x optical zoom with the Tetraprism periscope lens.
While it’s still too early to confirm details about the Pixel 9 lineup, earlier reports suggest that Google might introduce a smaller-screened Pro model alongside the regular and Pro Max/Ultra models, similar to Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. This could expand their flagship line to three models: Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9 Pro Max/Ultra.
Considering Young’s track record of accurately predicting upcoming device features, it would be wise not to bet against his information regarding the larger displays of the Pixel 9 series. Stay tuned for more updates on Google’s future smartphones.
