It looks like we have some details on how much it costs Samsung to make their Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone.
According to a recent report by IHS Markit, the new Samsung Galaxy S8 costs $301.60 to manufacture, this is around $43 higher than the Samsung Galaxy S7.
“The higher total BOM costs for the Galaxy S8 seem to be part of a trend that reflects something of an arms race in features among Apple, Samsung and other phone manufacturers, as they all try to add new and distinguishing hardware features,” said Andrew Rassweiler, senior director of cost benchmarking services for IHS Markit. “While there are new non-hardware features in the Galaxy S8, such as a virtual assistant called Bixby, from a teardown perspective the hardware in the Galaxy S8 and that of the forthcoming new iPhone is expected to be very similar.”
