We’ve seen some rumors in the past claiming that the Pixel 9 Pro will offer 16GB of RAM, and a well-known tipster just confirmed it too. Ice Universe said, on X, that the Pixel 9 Pro will offer 16GB of RAM.

In that post, he also mentioned that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will not. He seems to be quite annoyed by that based on what he said in that post. He believes that the ‘AI era’ which Samsung’s software entered requires 16GB of RAM to be included.

Having said that, the Google Pixel 9 appeared on Geekbench, the same goes for the Pixel 9 Pro XL. Those two listings confirm that the phones will be fueled by the Tensor G4 chip. That chip will fuel all phones in the Pixel 9 series, of course.

The Pixel 9 managed to score 1,653 points in the single-core, and 3,313 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench. What’s interesting is that these results are lower than what the Tensor G3 offers. Do note that this is probably a pre-release model, so don’t take that to heart.

The Pixel 9 Pro XL, on the other hand, managed to hit 1,378 points in the single-core, and 3,732 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench. You can see its results below.

The vanilla Pixel 9 will end up offering 8GB of RAM

You’ll also notice that the Pixel 9 has 8GB of RAM. Android 14 is mentioned here, while the Pixel 9 will ship with Android 15 out of the box. That’s another proof that this is a pre-release model, of course. The Pixel 9 Pro XL, on the other hand, will include 16GB of RAM, just like the Pixel 9 Pro.

These benchmarks also confirms that the Tensor G4 will have a prime core clocked at 3.1GHz, three cores running at 2,6GHz, and four cores clocked at 1.95GHz.

As a reminder, three Pixel 9 phones are expected to arrive this time around. The Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9 Pro XL are expected. All three of those phones already appeared in CAD-based renders.

All three of them are expected to launch at the same time, during Google’s press event which is expected in early October. There’s a chance that will happen in September, but considering Google’s past launches, October is a more realistic choice.
