Breaking News : iPhone SE costs Apple only Rs 10,500 to make, claims IHS

#1
While Apple prepares for the launch of the iPhone SE in India on April 8, which is likely to sport a price tag of Rs 39,000, research firm IHS have revealed that the manufacturing cost of the device is actually only $160 which translates to around Rs 10,574.

A report by IHS points out that analyst Andrew Rassweiler, who supervised the teardown for the 16GB variant suggested that the version is priced specifically to encourage consumers to opt for the 64GB version when making their buying decision.

“The iPhone SE represents an amalgamation of three iPhone generations, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, rolled into something altogether new,” said Andrew Rassweiler, senior director of cost benchmarking services at IHS. “Despite its physical resemblance to the iPhone 5s, the resulting product is far superior. In fact, the only significant trade offs a consumer would make with the iPhone SE against the iPhone 6s is smaller size and lower screen resolution.”

Many parts of the iPhone SE have been recycled from previous devices too. In addition, the display which cost $41 back in 2013, is now for less than half the price at $20. With the iPhone 5S, the display was made by Sharp or JDI, but this time around, LG is Apple’s vendor.
