Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus: Further costs

A total of 42 percent of the cost of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus accounts for the hardware and assembly. Not included are the costs for development, software and support. A German Galaxy S10 Plus Samsung also costs a little more through the back of ceramic and the 512 GB of internal memory - but the company also requires 250 euros more from the customers.
In comparison: The iPhone XS Max costs $ 453.00 (399 euros) at a retail price of € 1,249 with 64 GB of internal memory. Apple's margin is even higher despite the higher price of the items. The predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, costs $ 379 (334 euros). Compared to the Galaxy S10 Plus but with less memory, RAM and cameras. The price for the smartphone has therefore increased for Samsung and the costs are passed on directly to the customers.
