15 April, 2015 Galaxy S6/S6 Edge

We already reported before that Samsung is facing supply shortage and manufacturing difficulties with its latest Dual-edged smartphone, Galaxy S6 Edge, due to it's curved screen.

 

Now, a new report by the research firm IHS, shows that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge 64 GB (Verizon model) costs around $290 to build. This means the handset is more expensive to make than any of Apple's latest iPhones (6, 6 PLUS), which can cost up to $263 (iPhone 6 Plus 128 GB) to manufacture. The S6 edge is obviously also more expensive to build than a Galaxy S5 ($256).

Unsurprisingly, the most expensive component inside the Galaxy S6 edge is the curved Quad HD display: at $85 per unit (you can buy a decent, complete smartphone for that kind of money), the unique, dual-curve screen accounts for 29% of the total cost of an S6 edge. The next most expensive part inside the S6 edge is the octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, which is manufactured by Samsung itself, and costs $29.50 to make.
