Although there are in the market cell phones for all tastes, are those of high range those with the most advanced components, so they are also the ones that cost the most. But Have you ever wondered how much it is really worth making?
According to a recent report, one of these mobile phones can be sold almost three times more expensive than it costs to manufacture it, attending to the cost of all the components that integrate these devices, from the battery or the camera to the operating system that allows the applications to work.

So for example, make a single Huawei P30 Pro it costs on average about 349.40 dollars and its final market price is around 915 dollars while making a iPhone XR cost 346 dollars and it sell in 899 dollars.
To know the cost of manufacturing, the news agency Efe obtained the data from the tech consultancy TechInsights, which dismantled both models and calculated the sale price by breaking down its components.
In any case, the experts consulted warn that the net profit margin of manufacturing a high-end mobile may not be as high, because these calculations do not include labor or other indirect costs.
Thus, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) considers the average profit margin that these two companies obtained by the manufacture of their high-end mobiles is usually around 40%.
Thus, these are practically identical figures that reveal that, at least as far as the components are concerned, manufacturing a high-end mobile phone will it costs practically the same to both companies.
The most expensive of the Huawei P30 Pro are the cameras and parts that enable the image. For its part, the cameras of the iPhone XR cost around half, although it only has two built-in, the rear and the front. The most expensive component of the California mobile is the application processor, which costs $ 50.42.
Adding all its smartphone models, only in the first half of the year Huawei sold around 117.8 million mobiles worldwide, which means that it has sold more than seven devices per second, according to IDC consulting data.
The same source reveals that in the same period between January and June last Apple placed in the market IPhone 70.2 million in the global market, that is, more than four units per second.
