Samsung did great showing it’s greatest Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup in February. Although the phone’s pricing is increasing every year, but the components used to build really warrant such massive price hikes?
The TechInsights got it’s Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus and tore it to reveal the estimated build cost for it. It was a Korean model which was torn up to gather the estimated build costs. It contains an 8nm Exynos 9820 as opposed to the Qualcomm 855 SoC that will ship in US variants.
After the the device was ripped apart to know the estimated pricing, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ processor costs $10 less than the processor used in Samsung Galaxy S9+. The fancy looking new Infinity O with the camera cut out display is estimated to $9 less than the previous model, roughly this display costs $86.50 for the best mobile device display exists till date.
The internal storage amount has been increased from 64GB to 128GB and bumping up the Ram by 2GB requires some additional dollars. The total memory’s estimated build cost is just over $50 including the 128GB microSD card which is adding around $12 in total build cost.
Moving on to cameras components, these are not as expensive as we think. Although adding additional cameras results in additional build cost, the total of 5 cameras cost around $56.50.
On the other hand, all other physical materials, testing and assembly costs around $420 for the Exynos Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. This cost doesn’t include the marketing, software development and other costs exist. Although Samsung’s updation time to Android software is very poor but still it is cost the that exists.
