The Google Pixel 9 will be inspired by the iPhone on a specific point

Many rumors are circulating around the next smartphones in the Pixel range. Among these, the integration of an emergency SOS button and a better modem.

In recent years, connectivity difficulties have become recurring for Google Pixel users. Fortunately, the firm has worked hard over the generations and the Google Pixel 9 intends to offer new improvements.

It was through confidential information that the English-speaking media Android Authority became aware of the important changes to come by the company. For its next phones, Google should focus on a new, much more powerful modem. This is the Exynos 5400, a modem that can already be found on Samsung devices. In collaboration with T-Mobile, an American mobile telecommunications operator, users would, for the first time, have messaging service via a satellite link.

A very useful button, developed within a “Satellite Gateway” application, is added to the new modem. Similar to Apple's Emergency SOS function, Google's SOS button would appear in the form of automated questions that owners must answer in order to assess the situation. Through a tutorial animation, the system would guide users to connect their device to the nearest satellite. By offering all these services, Google demonstrates its desire to place itself among the ranks of viable competitors to Apple smartphones since the satellite connection was one of the big new features of the latest iPhones.

The development of these services should be made available on the next two devices, the Google Pixel 9 and the Google Pixel Fold 2. But all this risks generating costs. Apple is the only one to subsidize its service at the moment, it remains to be seen whether Google will follow suit.
