Google is finally going to compete with Samsung’s flagship smartphones. This year’s high-end Pixel phones—Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro—have impressive specifications, but it looks like most of the components used by the upcoming devices are made by Samsung. In a recent report, it has been revealed that the Pixel 6 series uses camera sensors and a 5G modem made by Samsung.

According to recent findings, the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro use Samsung’s 50MP ISOCELL GN1 camera sensor that was launched last year. The devices also appear to be using a variant of the Exynos 5123 5G modem. It is already known that Google’s first smartphone processing chipset that is debuting with the Pixel 6 series, the Tensor, has been co-developed with Samsung’s System LSI division. It is also possible that the 120Hz OLED screens used in the upcoming Pixel phones are made by Samsung Display.

The ISOCELL GN1 is a 1/1.31-inch sensor with 50MP resolution, 1.2µm ISOCELL Plus pixels, dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus, and 8K video recording. The sensor also features improved HDR, thanks to Samsung’s Tetra HDR technology. It can capture 10-bit images and HDR videos and supports up to 400fps 1080p slow-motion videos.

The Exynos 5123 is a 5G modem that supports sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G networks (SA/NSA). It is built using a 7nm process that offers maximum download speeds of up to 7.35Gbps on mmWave 5G networks and 5.1Gbps on sub-6GHz 5G networks. It supports up to 8CA (8-carrier aggregation). It was announced alongside the Exynos 990 chipset last year and was used in the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 series.
