The Google Pixel 9 series is expected to launch as a successor to the Pixel 8 lineup, which launched in October 2023 with the base Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro models. The said series is expected to launch with three new models, including a vanilla and a Pro model. The third model has not been confirmed yet but may have been spotted online. A new Google handset recently surfaced on a benchmarking website, and it is expected to be the alleged third Pixel 9 model.
MySmartPrice reports that a smartphone named Google Tokay has been spotted on the Geekbench 5 database. As per the listing, the handset scored 1082 points in the single-core test and 3121 points in the multi-core test. However, the report also notes that since the scores are significantly lower than the Pixel 8 models, the validity of these test results should be taken with a pinch of salt.
The listing shows the Google Tokay model with an octa-core chipset. It appears to have four cores clocked at 1.95GHz, three at 2.60GHz, and one at 3.10GHz. The report suggests that it could be the Tensor G4 chipset. It is also seen with Mali G715 GPU and 8GB RAM. The phone has also been seen with Android 14 OS.
The upcoming Google Pixel lineup is likely to get a base Pixel 9 model codenamed 'komodo' and a Pixel 9 Pro model codenamed 'caiman'. A third model is also rumored, but little is known about it. The report suggests that this could be the third model of the Pixel 9 series.
Earlier, Google Pixel 9 images were leaked and Pixel 9 Pro renders surfaced online. They are seen with flat edges, unlike previous models and similar to the design of the iPhone 15 series. The models appear to feature a triple rear camera unit with a more compact camera island.
