Ever wondered how much it costs Samsung to produce a Galaxy S8? Samsung’s latest flagship is credited to be one of the most expensive phones in terms of production cost.
The Galaxy S8 duo just released after the LG G6 and is selling like hot cakes. Though LG G6 is a very good option as it happens to be one of the finest productions of LG but Galaxy S8 seems to be a step ahead in the race.
What Factors Shoot Up The Production Cost?
The unheard features of Galaxy S8 make it a cost worthy smartphone. The unique feature that was introduced by Samsung in this iteration of the S series was the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Though many other phones got the same hardware update in their flagship units but Samsung was the actual pioneer. Also, the ‘Infinity Display’ and the beautiful sleek glass design makes it a treat to watch.
Various reports estimating the manufacturing cost of a Galaxy S8 unit claim that the phone is currently one of the most expensive production units in the market. Talking about the figures, all hardware specs and Samsung’s dedication may cost around $307.50 to the company for producing one unit of Galaxy S8.
Figures Are Totally Unofficial
When we say ‘Estimated Figures,’ it has nothing to do with the company’s official statement as Samsung has not released a word on the matter. Same was the case with the Apple’s flagship device when the CEO totally denied the estimates coming into the news.
Other Heroes In The Lineup
That’s not all, there are many other phones which cost a hell lot of a money in terms of production. Thanks to their high-end features. Google Pixel XL is another smartphone standing tall in the race with $285.80 as its production cost.
