Wow, first I thought you're joking. It's quite interesting to see liquid cooling in such small form factor.

And both versions use liquid cooling (heat-pipe - 0.6mm thick); their use is coming big way

Earlier they were used by NEC (in 2013 phones targeted at female customers), and in 2015 by Sony and MSFT smartphones

I read somewhere that Samsung is supplying two versions of the Galaxy 7: one with the Qualcomm 820 and one with their own Exynos 8890 CPU. The benchmarks I see show comparable performance. I think Samsung actually manufactures them both, but I wonder if the costs are less when they use their own CPU design.

Also, I find it interesting that you don't see Samsung DDR4 memory in a Samsung phone. I've seen DDR4 pricing much less than what is quoted here, so maybe Samsung's costs aren't so far off from the iPhone than what IHS is estimating.
