236$ BOM and the phone is sold for ~600$. Theres a lot of room for other Asian vendors, to simply compete on price. I feel in another 3-5 years ASP of a top smartphone like this will drop to 300$. Already Nexus 4 and Xiaomi(top brand in china) are being sold for ~300$

Samsung CE is paying 50% more for an Soc from its own group, than it is from a 3rd party ? Question is, why bother ?

Better question is at vertically integrated company, what is true BOM cost when supplying to yourself?

Regarding the broken link, remove the trailing period to make it work.

There is also the dealer / major distributor margin that must be factored in to the $600 list price tag. My guess is that Samsung will probably see a healthy margin over the scrubbed BOM/COGS but it won't be 150%. MP Divakar

236$ BOM and the phone is sold for ~600$. Who will account for all the R&D, marketing, distribution costs?? Surely, after all the court battles Sammy is no longer going to rely on just mimicking features. I agree that 600 is a tad too much but people are happy to pay then why not? Do Appl have exclusive rights to be the only rip-off allowed in this world?
