We’re Getting the Pixel 9 Series Earlier Than we Expected

If you’re waiting to see the Pixel 9, Pixel Watch 3, or other new Google hardware, mark your calendars for August 13th. Google has announced an in-person “Made by Google” event where they’ll showcase the best of Google AI, Android 15, and the Pixel portfolio. The keynote will take place at 10AM PT / 1PM ET as reported by The Verge.

Leaked Designs

After the video which was released by Google on their socials, we’re now definitely sure that what we saw in the leaks is true. The Pixel 9 series has been leaked online, revealing significant design changes. The new lineup includes:

  • Pixel 9: 6.2-inch display.
  • Pixel 9 Pro: 6.2-inch display.
  • Pixel 9 XL: 6.7-inch display.

Leaked images show a transition from the horizontal camera bar to a more traditional camera island with three cameras. But honestly, I prefer the camera bar more. The series is expected to feature a 120Hz refresh rate across all models and be powered by the new Tensor G4 chipset.

New Devices Under CMF Brand by Nothing

I can’t stop talking about them right? 😁Nothing is also gearing up to launch new devices under their CMF brand:

  1. CMF Buds Pro 2: Successors to the CMF Buds Pro, expected to offer enhanced sound quality and active noise cancellation.
  2. CMF Watch 2: Following the original CMF Watch, likely to run on a proprietary OS with improved health tracking and battery life.
  3. CMF Phone 1: Featuring a design with a repairability focus, hinted by a picture of a screwdriver posted by Nothing. It’s expected to have a unique dial at the bottom corner.

These devices will be announced during Nothing’s Community Keynote on July 8th.

Android 15 Release

Alongside the Pixel 9 series, Android 15 will also be launched. The beta version is already available on Pixel 7 and later models, as well as some third-party Android smartphones. Key features(for now) include:

  • System-Wide Toggles: For keyboard vibration and haptic feedback.
