When Is The Pixel 9 Coming Out?

Google’s event is on August 13, 2024, confirmed by a teaser showing the Pixel 9 Pro XL silhouette. Expect pre-orders to go live immediately after the event. The phones will likely hit stores and online retailers within the following weeks, similar to the Pixel 8 series release pattern.

Multiple leaks and reports strongly suggest that Google will introduce a Pixel 9 Pro XL alongside the standard and Pro models. This would mark a return to the XL branding, last seen with the Pixel 4 XL in 2019.
