Analysts say that Samsung could pull $ 4 billion more from the iPhone than the Galaxy S8.
Samsung actually has an interest in the iPhone X is a great success. According to the Wall Street Journal, the company makes about $ 110 from each phone sold, which all believe could translate into billions more dollars than the company has yet manufactured in its latest lighthouse, the Galaxy S8.
To be clear, all this money will go to Samsung Group, the conglomerate, as opposed to specifically the mobile division of the company. Why unexpected gain? Samsung has made the OLED screen, NAND flash and DRAM chips on the iPhone. At the moment, it is the only company able to manufacture these items in the volume that Apple needs, which means that Apple must buy Samsung parts.
If the iPhone X is sold as analysts think, this means that Samsung is making billions of dollars of competition. In fact, the magazine reports that an analyst thinks Samsung will probably win $ 4 billion more by selling shares to Apple than by selling its own handset.
“These are two of the world’s largest companies deeply hip and directly competitive,” said David Yoffie, a professor at Harvard Business School who studied Apple and sits on the board of Intel Corp .. “This in fact stand out compared to almost any relationship you can imagine. ”
