April 12, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Wolfson Microelectronics and Samsung Electronics have agreed a multi-year IP License and a Component Supply Agreement which establishes Wolfson as a primary Samsung audio partner, which will make Wolfson a major audio component supplier for the company's Galaxy range of smartphones and tablets, including the Galaxy S4, in 2013.

This announcement builds on Wolfson and Samsung’s existing relationship, where Wolfson has provided audio performance for Samsung devices including its best-selling Galaxy S III, as well as its Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 10.1.

Mike Hickey, CEO of Wolfson, said: “This is a significant milestone for Wolfson, and we are delighted to be making this announcement. Having worked closely with Samsung over recent years on their GALAXY range of tablets and smartphones, this agreement is a testament to our strong IP portfolio and our growing partnership, and we very much look forward to working closely together to continue to deliver exceptional audio in Samsung’s smartphones and tablets.”
