IPhone X (10) Production Cost Estimated At $412.75

You all must be surprised to hear this?, Well soo am i how can it cost just $412.75 and the sold to us at an expensive rate of $999? Well an industry in china investigated the price of each component price and came up with the total price of the device which appears to be cheaper or i say 60% more cheaper than the actual price.

Here is the break down
The most expensive component is the 5.8” OLED panel manufactured by Samsung. It’s price is $80 per unit which is way higher than any other part. The NAND memory, acquired from Toshiba is $45 for 256 GB. The 3 GB RAM is half - only $24.
Apple announced the A11 Bionic chipset, which is built by TSMC on their 10 nm process technology. One chipset costs $26 while the modem that is plastered on it is provided by Qualcomm and is $18 more.
The total sum of all components might be not so high as the end price, but don’t let the numbers mislead you - the price does not include the actual manufacturing, logistics and most importantly R&D costs. But should this be the reason why the price is so high?
