To build a perfect smartphone you want two things. Of course, you want a great phone, but it must have an affordable price as well. It’s very hard for manufacturers to make a great device that is cheap because the best components are usually very expensive.
Samsung is one of those companies that always has been making expensive, premium handsets. The company’s upcoming Galaxy S8 will probably be an expensive phone as well. In fact, reports have claimed that the S8 device will be more expensive to build than previous Galaxy S smartphones. One of the biggest reasons is that the S8 is rumoured to get a 256GB storage version.
The build cost may be expensive, but this doesn’t mean that the price of the S8 will be higher than usual. After the Note 7 scandal, Samsung’s economy has not been doing very well. If they were to make the price of the Galaxy S8 high, lots of consumers could maybe buy another phone instead. Do you want a phone with 256GB of storage? Would you buy the S8 even if the price tag increases?
