The higher overall BOM price for the iPhone 8 Plus cannot be attached to a sole feature or area. The higher price is the outcome of sluggish yearly component price erosion attached in with extra aspects, claimed senior director of cost benchmarking services, Andrew Rassweiler, to the media in an interview. From a break up point of view, the largest price boosters might be new wireless charging elements and the elevated content of NAND flash memory.
Similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 8 Plus sports a Full HD 5.5-inch display, a hardened glass and an aluminum frame. This year’s variant sports features such as wireless charging, hence the uni-body design of aluminum was discarded for a more conventional glass back.
