Apple iPhone X is the most costly handset ever manufactured by the firm. In the U.S. it has a price tag of $1149 for the 256 GB model and $999 for the 64 GB model. But how much cash is Apple in reality getting out of it? Even though the firm by no means unveils such data, TechInsights appears to have calculated the price of the elements utilized in the production of the handset.
As per approximations, it might have taken the Cupertino-based tech major almost $357.50 to produce the iPhone X. If the cited amount is accurate, Apple has 64% gross profit, higher than the 59% of iPhone 8. It has also been cited that various components of the iPhone X has a price tag more than the elements used in the iPhone 8. The best part of the handset, its 5.7-inch OLED screen, alone is claimed to have a price tag of almost $65.50. The 4.7-inch LCD screen of the iPhone 8 apparently has a price tag of $36.
In addition to this, the stainless steel framework of the flagship handsets is claimed to have a price tag of $36, almost $15 more than as compared to iPhone 8. It is worth including that the sum cited here is the cost of the elements only. This keeps out the manufacturing price and funds spent on advertising, research and development, distribution and so on.
In a last report, the iPhone 8 with 64 GB memory might have cost the firm $247.51 (only raw elements). The iPhone 8 Plus elements might have the price tag of $288.08. Both are more than the elements utilized in the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7. The iPhone X is the only 1 of the 3 new smartphones rolled out this year that has an OLED screen. The handset went up on sale few days back in India.
Apple has given the price tag to the iPhone X, which arrives in 2 storage version 64 GB and 256 GB, of Rs 89,000 (64 GB version) onwards in the country. The 256 GB variant has a price tag of Rs 102,000 setting a new record for pricing of mainstream handsets.
