The latest leak arrives from the user Nail_Sadykov on Twitter. The user has published the UI of the satellite communication feature on the Pixel 9 series. It shows how the user can link the smartphone with a nearby satellite. This process can be done in full-screen mode and also in the form of a widget.

The user has also revealed that satellite communication on the Pixel 9 series is possible due to the Samsung Modem 5400. This modem is a part of the Tensor G4 chipset. This chip will also be utilized in upcoming devices including next-gen Pixel Fold. Hence, Google might be planning to introduce satellite connectivity on multiple devices this year. This will also inspire other manufacturers to bring it out on their devices. This feature can be quite useful in cases of emergency when there are no cellular signals.

That said, we will get to know more information regarding the feature once the phone arrives officially. We are expecting the Pixel 9 lineup to come out in October.
