Pixel 7 Pro Costs $413 to Make, Over 50 Percent Parts Are Made by Samsung: Counterpoint Research

Google Pixel 7 Pro was launched in India in October of last year. The smartphone debuted in the market at a starting price of Rs. 59,999. According to a new report, Pixel 7 Pro’s bill of materials (BoM) cost has more contribution from Samsung, as compared to Google. The South Korean electronics company not only supplies the Pixel 7 Pro’s display, but also contributes to its Tensor G2 SoC, as well as the imaging system. Pixel 7 Pro’s Tensor G2 is manufactured along with Samsung LSI.

According to the latest report by market research firm Counterpoint Research, about half of the components making up the Pixel 7 Pro is made by Samsung. Meanwhile, Google only contributes 7 percent to Pixel 7 Pro’s BoM cost. The report states that it costs Google around $413 (roughly Rs. 34,000) to build the Pixel 7 Pro 128GB variant.

The research states that Google’s latest Tensor G2 is developed in partnership with Samsung LSI. The processor is manufactured at Samsung Foundry’s 5nm process node. Google reportedly made minor upgrades in the Tensor G2’s octa-core CPU architecture, which only cost them $10 more than the original Tensor G SoC.

Apart from the process, Samsung also provides the display for the Pixel 7 Pro. The Samsung Display accounts for around 20 percent of the smartphone’s BoM cost. The smartphone’s 6.7-inch AMOLED display is manufactured by Samsung. While the company’s ISOCELL GN1 power the main camera, Pixel 7 Pro’s periscope, and front selfie cameras are powered by Samsung LSI
