  • Leaked benchmarks of the Pixel 9 series give us a first look at the Tensor G4 chip and its new 1+3+4 core configuration.
  • The benchmark numbers show modest performance improvements compared to the Pixel 8.

Google’s track record of keeping its upcoming Pixel phones under wraps isn’t the best, and it seems the Pixel 9 series is no exception. After leaked images of the Pixel 9, 9 Pro, and 9 Pro XL surfaced, we now have leaked images benchmarking the Pixel 9 phones, revealing details about the Tensor G4 chipset.

According to benchmark test results posted by Rozetked, the Tensor G4 sports an 8-core configuration: one Cortex-X4 running at 3.1 GHz, three Cotrex-A720 at 2.6 GHz, and four Cortex-A520 at 1.95 GHz. In terms of changes, the G4 witnesses a reduction in core count, transitioning to an 8-core setup compared to the 9-core setup on the Tensor G3, along with an uptick in clock speeds across all cores.
