Estimates for the Galaxy S21 BoM
The Galaxy S21 and S21 + are designed to be cost-oriented. Your bill of materials costs have apparently decreased by 12 to 13 percent compared to the Galaxy S20 and S20 +. Both phones have lower density displays and the Galaxy S21 + also has less RAM. The new series also dropped its predecessor’s time-of-flight (ToF) unit, which is what consumers do Unlike last year’s models, the new phones don’t come with chargers and headphones, which saves the company money.
