Google’s newest Pixel smartphones—Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro—use many components made by Samsung. The company uses the South Korean firm’s display panel, camera sensors, and connectivity components. Even the processor inside the Pixel 7 series is co-developed and manufactured by Samsung.
A new report from market research firm Counterpoint Research reveals exactly how much Google is dependent on Samsung for the components used in the Pixel 7 Pro. The mmWave version of the Pixel 7 Pro uses Samsung Display’s LTPO OLED screen. The phone also features Samsung’s (System LSI) ISOCELL camera sensors that are used on the front and rear.
The phone’s baseband, transceivers, and power trackers for sub-6GHz bands are designed by Samsung, too. It also provides the mmWave 5G components it developed with Murata. The Pixel 7 series also uses Samsung’s PMIC components that take care of power management and audio.
Some of the other notable components in the Pixel 7 Pro are made by SK Hynix (NAND Flash Storage), Samsung Semiconductor (RAM), Micron (RAM), ATL (battery cell), Sunwoda Electronics (battery packaging), NXP (wired charging), IDT (wireless charging), and SEMCO (rear camera module), and Samsung Foundry (manufacturing of Tensor G2 chipset).
