Speaking of Galaxy S8, the Korean smartphone manufacturer’s spokesperson named ‘@ Blue Blue V’ on Weibo said:
Galaxy S8 hardware BOM cost more than the price of Xiaomi Mi 6
To be clear, his statement indicates that the cost of Galaxy S8 hardware should be more than 2,500 yuan ($363). Features such as the presence of heart rate sensor, an iris scanner, and waterproof chassis further supports this assertion. Still, considering the price of S8 hardware only to be equal to Xiaomi Mi 6 total price seems to be a complete lie. If it’s true then how come Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t top in performance. Why Xiaomi Mi 6 incorporates an overclocked SoC and 6GB dual channel RAM for a cheaper price? We hope that he better has something to support his argument.
