Galaxy S 4 uses 63 percent of Samsung’s own components

The Galaxy S 4 uses 63 percent of original Samsung components. Samsung announced the Galaxy S 4 last week in New York City. The device features a 4.99” Super AMOLED Full HD display, a 13 megapixel camera, an Octa-Core processor (HSPA version) and many more. Today according to IHS, the Galaxy S 4 costs $244 to manufacture where as the Galaxy S III costs $213 to manufacture. Of course the retail price is 3/4 times higher but the Galaxy S 4 is still expensive¬†to build than the Apple iPhone 5.

As you may noticed, Samsung uses almost all original Samsung parts. According to IHS Samsung uses 63 percent! There is no other brand which can do the same.
The most expensive parts by Samsung were the display and processor. A good thing to know is Samsung don’t need help of partners to get all parts. Samsung develops by themself the biggest part which cost lower price and time.

So what do you think? Will you buy the Galaxy S 4?

Nope. Way to big to fit in the pocket and it will never see Key Lime Pie. Samsung would drop the S4 after 6 month and they will shift their focus on the Galaxy S5. Maybe 2 years later, S4 will get Key Lime Pie. If you’re lucky.

Hope that it will fit in my budget.I am very eager to have this octa core version.
I think SAMSUNG is going to release two versions one quad with LTE & octa without LTE at start (Then in future there might be octa LTE version).
