Apple iPhone 12 Pro's bill of materials comes up to $406
Japanеsе teardown experts Fomalhaut Techno Solutions have released their reports on the bill of materials (BoM) for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, giving us a close approximation of the component costs of building the two phones. The iPhone 12 BoM comes out to $373 while the 12 Pro’s is $406. As a reminder the iPhone 12 retails at $829 while the 12 Pro's base price is $999.
The most expensive components of the iPhones are their Samsung-built OLED displays which are estimated at $70 per unit and Qualcomm X55 5G modem which goes for around $90. The production cost of the A14 Bionic chipset is said to cost $40 while other components like RAM ($12.8 per unit) and flash memory ($19.2 per unit) are among the more expensive parts. Sony’s camera sensors powering the new iPhones range between $7.4 and $7.9 per unit.
We also have an interesting chart which shows the component providers by region with South Korea accounting for 26.8% of all parts in the new iPhone models, followed by the US at 21.9% and Japan at 13.6%. Apple still assembles the majority of its iPhones in China.
