iSupply - the S4 cost is estimated at $236, the 5" AMOLED costs $75
IHS iSuppi posted a "virtual teardown" for the upcoming Galaxy S4, saying that the bill of materials is about $236 (for the HSPA+ S4 with 16 gigabytes of NAND flash). According to iSuppli, the 5" Full-HD Super AMOLED display costs $75. As the 4.8" WXGA AMOLED on the S3 costs $65, this represents the largest cost increase for the S4 compared to its predecessor (The cost of making an S3 is estimated at $208). The cost of the AMOLED display is over 30% of the cost of the entire S4.
It's $10 more than screen in S3 and not because they started using green host there.
It's rather leap jump in resolution.
I think I read somewhere that Samsung is targeting to outsell S3 by factor of 2 in the first month..
Next quarter results will be fun.
