The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the latest high-end smartphone from the South Korean tech giant, and with it being the latest device and it being part of the Galaxy Note series of phablets, it will cost you a pretty penny to take one home. That being said, have you ever wondered how much it costs for Samsung to build a single Galaxy Note 3 device? Well according to a teardown report, which is hardly official by the way, it has been estimated that the Galaxy Note 3 costs about $240 to make, meaning that for every Galaxy Note 3 sold, Samsung is pocketing a fairly large amount.
The $240 estimated costs is about $20 higher than the Galaxy Note 2. This has been attributed to the Galaxy Note 3’s faster processor, higher RAM, and better display. In any case like we said, these numbers aren’t exactly official, not to mention there is a possibility that Samsung could be getting a bulk discount on some components as well, possibly driving the prices even lower than the estimation. Either way despite what Samsung is charging for every Galaxy Note 3, we’re sure there are plenty of customers out there who are more than happy to pay the premium to own it. What do you guys think? Are you a little put off now that you know how much Samsung is pocketing with every device sold?
