Every time a new smartphone is launched, it is common to find comparisons of all kinds. We have already faced the Samsung Galaxy S9 + to the iPhone X , but not in terms of manufacturing cost. Now we can do it thanks to the report published by Tech Insights .
This comparison shows the cost of manufacturing a Samsung Galaxy S9 + with other recent releases of the company like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the Galaxy S8 + from last year. However, what is most striking is to compare whether it costs more to manufacture the Samsung Galaxy S9 + or the iPhone X .
Of course the devaluation of the devices is not taken into account, in order to be able to make a comparison in the maximum equality of conditions. In this way in the following table we can see how much it costs to manufacture each smartphone attending to important variables such as the assembly, the price of camera or battery components, the audio systems used and a very long etc.
Which brand earns the most per mobile sold
From this comparison we can notice that this year Samsung has trouble making more Samsung Galaxy S9 + that the other models present in the market, like we see that it is more expensive for Apple to develop the iPhone X than other phones in its catalog. But what brand more with each mobile sold? ¿ Samsung or Apple ?
- He iPhone X It costs 999 dollars in the United States. taking into account that he spends 389.5 dollars in his manufacture, the company wins $ 609.5 per unit coming.
- He Samsung Galaxy S9 + It costs 839 dollars in North American lands. Subtracting the 379 invested in its manufacture we see that the earnings per unit are of $ 460 .
As expected, the biggest iPhone X price , although its manufacturing is slightly more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S9 +, makes Apple earn more money for each unit sold from the top end of the range.
Specifically, if we take into account the 839 dollars that the Samsung Galaxy S9 + compared to the $ 379 that it uses in its manufacture, the net profits for each model sold to the Korean manufacturer are $ 460. In the case of Apple, if you sell each iPhone X to $ 999 on American soil and invested $ 389.5 in its manufacture, the benefit that Cupertino get for each iPhone X sold is more than $ 600.
This makes it clear that Apple earns more money per unit sold than Samsung , but we must bear in mind that we speak only in terms of materials and labor. Of course these figures should be discounted the percentage equivalent to the investment of each brand in research, marketing, patents and a long etc.
