Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G in early August. The phone went on sale at a price of $1,299 for the 8GB/128GB variant in the United States.

To this end, Counterpoint research specialists went on a quest to find out how much the flagship costs to make. The researchers did this by compiling a list of the phone’s inside components.

The result of the research shows that all the components of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G cost $468 in total. Adding the costs of software development, packaging, accessories, and testing, brings the total cost to $549.

This calculation was carried out based on the Snapdragon version of the phone. This means that the chipset priced is the Snapdragon 865+ and not the Exynos 990 which costs cheaper.

The Counterpoint researchers also came up with a visual representation of what percentage of different companies’ components were used in the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G 128GB. Samsung components take the lead with 50% in the Snapdragon version. This reportedly shoots up to about 70% in the Exynos version.
