Samsung Galaxy S5 costs $256 to manufacture

IHS has released its report concerning Samsung Galaxy S5’s teardown. The report unravels the approximate costs of materials used to create this phone and came to the appalling conclusion that the phone costs $256 to build. However considering that its predecessor, the Galaxy S4 cost somewhat similar ($244), the news is not that great a shock. The 5.1” full HD Super AMOLED display is perhaps the most costly part of the phone.

The display alone costs $63, which is still $12 cheaper than the display utilized on the Galaxy S4. Alongside this, the DRAM and flash memory are worth $33. By streamlining its products, Samsung probably hopes to reduce the manufacturing cost of its flagship phone.

The fingerprint sensor costs just $4 which constitutes a much cheaper cost than what iPhone 5S’s finger print sensor incurs in its manufacturing process. Apple’s flagship phone costs around $199 with the sensor alone costing $15, considering that the materials employed in Samsung’s sensor and in that of Apple’s differ, this price differentiation is plausible. IHS’s report however, does not include marketing, distribution, software and R & D costs.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
