A Japanese laboratory has determined the true cost of producing an iPhone 12
The Japanese laboratory specializing in hardware dismantling (Fomalhaut Techno Solutions) said that the cost of the iPhone 12 smartphone does not exceed $ 373, and the cost of producing the iPhone Pro phone is $ 406.
Despite this, the iPhone 12 is sold at a starting price of $ 829, while the iPhone Pro comes at $ 999.
As for the cost of the components for the phone, the highest price for the processor (Qualcomm X55 5G) was $ 90 per phone, followed by the OLED screen at $ 70.
The lab published a drawing showing the source of each supplier of the phone's components, as South Korea accounts for 26.8 percent of all components for the modern Apple phone, followed by the United States with 21.9 percent, and then Japan by 13.6 percent.
It is noteworthy that the American giant is still assembling the majority of its phones in China.
