Samsung’s new 5G modem fuels satellite connectivity in Google Pixel 9 series

Pixel 9 samsung modem

Google‘s Pixel 9 series is ready to introduce a significant upgrade with emergency satellite connectivity and new Samsung modem. This series aims to solve the persistent connectivity problems seen in previous Pixel models.

According to the information via AndroidAuthority, Samsung Modem 5400 will be integrated with Tensor G4 chips for the Pixel 9 series to bring significant improvements in terms of speed, power efficiency, and stability

The Pixel 9’s modem will support 5G non-terrestrial networks (NTN), which means it will enable satellite-based communication. This is particularly important for emergencies where standard network coverage is unavailable.

Moreover, this innovative feature is not exclusive to the Pixel 9. The next-generation Pixel Fold and a 5G tablet, currently under development, will also be equipped with the same modem.

One of the most notable features of this upgrade is the ability to connect with emergency services via satellite, which is crucial for users in areas without cellular coverage. To facilitate this, Google has implemented a system that guides users through a set of questions, allowing for quick communication with emergency responders. For example,

  • What happened?
  • [Are you/Are they/Is everyone] breathing?
  • In total, how many people are [missing/trapped]?
  • What best describes your situation?
  • What is on fire?
  • Are there weapons involved?

Although the release details for the 5G tablet are still unclear, the Pixel 9 series is expected to lead the way in mobile communication technology, ensuring users can remain connected in any location.
