Google Pixel 9 User Interface for Purported iPhone 15-Like Satellite Connectivity Feature Leaked: See Video

Apr16,2024


It is speculated that Google will offer emergency satellite connectivity on the Pixel 9 series. The Samsung Exynos 5400 modem is believed to be integrated into the company's rumored next-generation Tensor G4 chipset, which enables satellite access on the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro. Google hasn't provided any details related to the alleged feature yet, but a new leak gives us an idea of ​​how the satellite connectivity system will work on the Pixel 9 series. The UI indicates that animations will help guide users in moving their phone to connect to a nearby active satellite.

Nail Sadykov (@NAIL_Sadykov) has leaked a video on X (formerly Twitter) that takes a look at the interface Android provides to users when attempting to connect to a satellite. As shown in the video, the UI will instruct users to point the phone at the satellite. Users need to place the satellite icon inside the circle to ensure connection. According to Sadikov, this UI can be minimized to a floating window for viewing other apps and staying connected to the satellite while texting with emergency services.

tipster ahead Claim Users will see a notification from Satellite SOS asking them to “get a clear view of the sky by avoiding buildings, trees and mountains.” This is to ensure that the signal from the satellite is not disrupted by obstacles.

A recent report citing a Google insider claims that satellite connectivity is coming to the Pixel 9 series, Pixel Fold 2, and Google's rumored 5G tablet. The Pixel 9 family may be the first to support Android's native satellite implementation.

Google will reportedly partner with T-Mobile to offer integrated satellite connectivity features with Android 15. It may add other providers later. The Tensor G4 chipset's new Samsung Exynos 5400 modem is said to offer an advanced software stack to enable satellite-based communications. The satellite link will reportedly allow texting. Users will be asked basic questions with predefined answers to identify an emergency situation.
