The price difference between the price and the cost is 3,900 yuan, and the cost of the iPhone 12 Pro BOM is exposed: mainland China devices account for less than 5%!
It’s been a while since the four iPhone 12 models came out and are now available in almost every country. In the series, the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro models start at $699 and $999, respectively.
Every time a new iPhone is released, everyone looks forward to knowing which devices are used in the actual BOM of the phone? What is the cost?
Recently, the Japanese dismantling professional organization Fomalhaut Techno Solutions released the latest report, which analyzed in detail the main components of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro and the cost of the BOM of the whole machine.
According to the report, the iPhone 12 bill of materials (BoM) cost is $373, while the iPhone 12 Pro bill of materials (BoM) cost is $406. If you only look at the material cost, the difference between the selling price and the BOM cost of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro is $326 and $593 (about 3,900 yuan), respectively. Of course this difference doesn’t mean the amount goes directly into Apple’s pocket. Because there will be a lot of costs for research and development, marketing, transportation, certification, etc. that are not included.
The two most expensive components in the new iPhone are Samsung’s OLED Display and Qualcomm’s X55 5G modem. Samsung’s OLED displays are estimated at $70 each, while Qualcomm’s modems are estimated at $90 each. In addition, the production cost of the A14 Bionic is $40. Some other expensive parts include DRAM at $12.8 per unit and flash memory at $19.2 per unit. Sony’s camera sensors are priced between $7.4 and $7.9 per unit.
The data from the analysis agency Fomalhaut also shows that from the perspective of the value of the component sources of the iPhone 12 Pro, Korean manufacturers of components such as screens, memory, and flash memory account for the majority, with a share of 26.8%, followed by American manufacturers with 21.9%. . Japanese manufacturers also had a 13.6% share, Taiwanese manufacturers accounted for 11.1%, mainland Chinese manufacturers accounted for 4.6%, and the rest of Europe accounted for 21.9%.
