Many were left wondering about the manufacturer of the displays Google employed in the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. There was no mention of this in the announcement, but the mystery has been solved. A teardown reveals that the Pixel 3 XL display is indeed manufactured by Samsung.

However, there’s a little bit more to the story. iFixit did indeed tear down one Pixel 3 XL, but that doesn’t give an answer to the same question around the smaller, Pixel 3’s display manufacturer. Furthermore, by tearing down a single unit, it might be possible for other units to feature displays from a different manufacturer, like LG for instance. It is unknown whether Google sourced its display orders with Samsung exclusively, or with another maker as well.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

Still, the particular Pixel 3 XL that we’re talking about today looks to employ a Samsung display. iFixit found serial markings, as well as adhesives, that lead to the conclusion of the display being a Samsung AMOLED panel.
