Samsung S8 – What is the actual cost of making one?

Have you ever wondered just how much it costs to build one of the finest phones on the planet. Wonder no more, as the bill of materials (BOM) has been released. According to the post the bill is US$301.60, add in the actual manufacture cost (US$5.90), that comes to a grand total of US$307.50. Now, this isn’t going to be the actual full cost, because you need to take into account other factors such as shipping, marketing etc. the actual cost is higher. Samsung still makes a chunk of profit from the device. It’s higher build cost than last years S7, you do however have better and more expensive materials.

Now the S8 has been released to people who have pre-ordered it, did you pick up one? Vote below
