Google Pixel 9 series color variants, wallpapers surface

Google is getting ready to unveil its next lineup of Pixel series smartphones – the Pixel 9 series. As we await the official launch later this year, leaked wallpapers have revealed a new “Swirling Petals” theme, suggesting the available color variants.

Each year, Google introduces a new wallpaper theme with its smartphones. Last year’s theme was minerals. This year, according to Android Authority, the Pixel 9 series will feature “Swirling Petals,” described as “a swirling display of abstract florals.”

These wallpapers have a translucent look, with petal-shaped blobs of color around the screen. The colors are contrasting but not particularly vibrant, which is common for default wallpapers. There are both light and dark versions of each wallpaper.

The series will include four devices: Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, Pixel 9 Pro XL, and Pixel 9 Pro Fold. This marks the first time Google is launching four devices simultaneously, representing a new strategy. Pixel 9 Pro Fold, initially expected to launch earlier, is now anticipated to debut later this year with the Tensor G4 chip.

The leaked wallpapers hint at the following color options:

  • Pixel 9: Jade, Obsidian, Peony, and Porcelain
  • Pixel 9 Pro and Pixel 9 Pro XL: Hazel, Obsidian, Porcelain, and Rose
  • Pixel 9 Pro Fold: Obsidian and Porcelain (Gold)

The report cautions that these early codenames might change in Google’s final marketing, and some colors might not be available at launch or at all.
