It Cost Apple $412.75 to Make the iPhone X (iPhone 10)

   
    The costs of components used in making the iPhone X has been revealed and it's estimated at $412.75 according to industry insiders in China. The phone which is also called iPhone 10 will sale for $1000 starting from September. This means Apple will make about 60% gain on each iPhone X sold.

IPHONE X PRODUCTION COST IN DETAILS

✔️ The most expensive component is the 5.8” OLED panel manufactured by Samsung. It’s price is $80 per unit which is way higher than any other part.

✔️ The NAND memory, acquired from Toshiba is $45 for 256 GB.

✔️ The 3 GB RAM is half - only $24.

✔ Apple announced the A11 Bionic chipset, which is built by TSMC on their 10 nm process technology. One chipset costs $26 while the modem that is plastered on it is provided by Qualcomm and is $18 more.

✔️ The 3D sensor is also in the expensive category - it is $25. It is packed behind the glass on the front panel which is another $18.


Note that the $412.75 price does not include the actual manufacturing, logistics and most importantly R&D costs. So don't get it twisted as the total production and other expenses could rise up to $590

The Apple iPhone X can be pre-ordered on October 27 and shipping starts on November 3.

  7. Samsung Says Their Foldable Smartphone is Coming… in 2018

    The battle for smartphone innovation continues. Last week, ahead of the anticipated unveiling of the new iPhone X, Samsung announced plans for a foldable smartphone.

    Samsung first showcased a flexible display prototype called Youm in 2013. Since there, rumors of an announcement of the Samsung Galaxy X have circulated.
    This week, however, the brand officially unveiled its plans for the release of its first foldable smartphone.

    Samsung’s president of mobile business, Koh Dong-jin, said the company is eyeing a 2018 release for upcoming smartphone.

    However, he said there are several hurdles they have to overcome, leaving room to push back the release if the problems have not been resolved.
    “As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year,” he told reporters. “When we can overcome some problems for sure, we will launch the product.”

    Dong-jin did not ellaborate on the problems, but experts said mass-producing a foldable phone with top industry features will take time to develop.

    Furthermore, he said Samsung is working with audio brand Harman to develop an artificial intelligence-enabled speaker that allows users to speak in order to execute commands like playing music.

    Further details are currently unknown. Stay tuned…

  8. New AirPods with a case for wireless charging

    Apple briefly talked about the new version AirPods at today’s presentation in the theater of Steve Jobs.The company mentioned that the updated headphones model comes with a cover that supports the Qi wireless charging standard.
    In fact, Apple is preparing its own wireless charging pad, which should appear in 2018, and supports multiple devices. The user will only need to put it on your iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3 and headphones AirPods, that they were charged simultaneously.
    The company has not said whether these AirPods equipped with a chip Apple W2, but the likelihood of such a solution is high, considering that the new Apple TV 4K got this processor.

  9. List of iPhone, iPad and iPhod Touch models supporting iOS 11

    September 19, after many months of beta testing, Apple will release a public version of iOS 11. Updating the mobile operating system promises not only a lot of new features but, like every new major version of iOS, the termination of support for some older devices.

    If you want to know if your iPhone or iPad is compatible with iOS 11, this article will satisfy your curiosity.

    Devices not supported by iOS 11
    With the release of iOS 11, Apple will refuse to support 32-bit applications. This means that models of the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, based on 32-bit chipsets, will also not be supported. Therefore, the following devices will not be able to install the new version of iOS:
    *.iPhone 5
    *.iPhone 5c
    *.iPad 3
    *.iPad 4
    IOS 11 compatible devices
    All other devices on iOS that were supported on iOS 10 are compatible with iOS 11. Among them:
    *.iPhone X
    *.iPhone 8
    *.iPhone 8 Plus
    *.iPhone 7
    *.iPhone 7 Plus
    *.iPhone 6s
    *.iPhone 6s Plus
    *.iPhone 6
    *.iPhone 6 Plus
    *.iPhone SE
    *.iPhone 5s
    *.6th generation iPod Touch
    iPad:
    *.New 9.7-inch iPad
    *.12.9-inch iPad Pro
    *.9.7-inch iPad Pro
    *.iPad Air 2
    *.iPad Air
    *.iPad mini 4
    *.iPad mini 3
    *.iPad mini 2
    *.iPad 5
    The new system of electronic payments Apple Pay Cash will be supported only by the following devices in the US:
    *.iPhone X
    *.iPhone 8
    *.iPhone 8 Plus
    *.iPhone SE
    *.iPhone 6
    *.iPhone 6s
    *.iPhone 7
    *.iPhone 6 Plus
    *.iPhone 6s Plus
    *.iPhone 7 Plus
    *.iPad 5
    *.iPad Pro
    *.iPad Air 2
    *.iPad mini 3
    Ending support for 32-bit devices goes without saying, given the abandonment of 32-bit applications for iOS.

    One of the biggest innovations in iOS 11, the ARKit Augmented Reality toolkit, will be available only on the iPhone and iPad with the A9 or A10 chipset.
    *.iPhone X
    *.iPhone 8
    *.iPhone 8 Plus
    *.iPhone SE
    *.iPhone 6s
    *.iPhone 6s Plus
    *.iPhone 7
    *.iPhone 7 Plus
    *.iPad Pro (All three variants and models)
    *.New 9.7-inch iPad (2017)
    Older iPhone and iPad models based on A8 and other chipsets will not support ARKit, so their owners will not be able to enjoy the delights of augmented reality. Perhaps it’s worth upgrading your device for the sake of ARKit applications

  15. 3 reasons why Android is better than iOS

    Debating between Android and iOS? The debate ends here. If you are ready to buy a new smartphone or other devices, Android is the premier option to go with. These are a few reasons you will love what you get with Android, more so than is the case with iOS.

    1.Price–
    From the actual cost of the smartphones and devices, to cost of apps, you will save quite a bit of money with Android. As a matter of fact, most of their apps are free. Further, if you go through a contract provider, you can find many which allow you to pay off the price of your new device over several months or years, without incurring interest. So you pay much less over the lifetime of ownership with these devices.

    2.Customisation–
    If you want to put apps in different locations, run on different software programs, install ROM, or install new hardware programs, go ahead and do so. With iOS you are extremely limited, and can only use their programs/software. With Android, what you see is what you get, and what you prefer, is fully customisable. So go ahead and choose what you like, how you want to see/use it, and virtually set up your devices any way you deem fit as a user.

    3.You choose your OS–
    Yes, you can add ROM and other expandable features. But with Android, you can even install the OS of choice. Form Sailfish to Firefox, the choice is yours. Simply install, add up the updates when prompted to do so, and you are ready to browse on any platform you like best.

    Android offers more, gives you control of the reigns, and offers far more reasonable pricing. So why not give one of their devices a shot if you are an iOS user, and ready for something new?

  18. These high frequency, Massive MIMO antenna arrays will require beamforming and/or bream tracking in order to maximise data efficiency to the user. By this we mean the antenna will send a focused stream of data to users rather than current omnidirectional broadcasts. This is done by triangulating the location of the user and using intelligent algorithms to fire data back along an optimal path. Clearly this is more involved and expensive than current technologies, but will greatly increase bandwidth efficiency and allow for the use of very high frequency bands. However, research is still ongoing and final specifications for these high frequency antenna technologies are yet to be finalized.

    ReplyDelete
  19. These short range stations will likely be constructed from densely packed antenna arrays, which is incidentally exactly what’s needed for increased capacity. Furthermore, larger antenna arrays have already been shown to boost the range of even very high frequency implementations. A 2016 NTT DOCOMO study presented at the Brooklyn 5G Summit suggests that a 77 X 77 antenna array of 6,000 elements can exceed a kilometer in distance at 3.5 GHz and can even cover over 800 meters at 30 GHz. Even so, this would require potentially 40 to 50 base stations to provide the same area coverage as 8 to 10 4G stations, although speeds will be much higher.

  20. To make this financially viable for carriers, existing 4G LTE bands will likely remain as they are for the foreseeable future. 5G NR developments and new radio frequencies are instead going to be developed primarily to make use of currently unused cmWave and mmWave frequencies.

  22. In practical terms, this means making use of existing 4G LTE bands and incorporating 5G New Radio(NR) technologies over time, and combining the two by evolving existing carrier aggregation and larger multi-antenna technologies. 5G NR will support not only a range of new use cases, such as mass IoT, but also diverse spectrum as well. The idea is to enable seamless transitions between and simultaneous connections to available bands across long distance, small cell, mmWave, and Wi-Fi frequencies.

    ReplyDelete
  23. To help sidestep this problem, 5G is looking to a wide range of spectrum options, including new very high frequency bandwidth above 6 GHz and making use of unlicensed bands to increase capacity. The downside of this approach is that these high frequencies don’t travel very far or penetrate walls as well as low frequencies bands, which are in short supply. Therefore, future 5G networks are going to look more patchworked than today’s networks, combining short, medium, and long distance coverage to increase capacity.

  24. Finding the spectrum
    Broadly speaking, licensed spectrum is still a precious commodity for carriers, and at the moment there doesn’t appear to be enough to go around to reach the lofty specifications sought after by the evolving 5G standard.

  25. What is 5G and when is it arriving?

    5G – a technological overview
    Before delving into the details, here’s a quick recap of what’s expected with the arrival of 5G in the coming years. Peak network data rates will reach 20 Gbps download and 10 Gbps, a 20x improvement over IMT-Advanced 4G. However us users will likely see our data rates hover somewhere above 100 Mbps, up from a typical 10 Mbps with 4G.
    If that doesn’t seem like a massive speed boost compared with some of today’s fastest networks, remember that we’re already well into the introduction of LTE-Advanced, which is helping to bridge the gap with tomorrow’s 5G networks. In fact, 5G being designed to integrate with LTE connections in a few interesting ways. Some 5G features may even be implemented as LTE-Advanced Proextensions before the full 5G rollout, including the use of 256QAM, Massive MIMO, and LTE-Unlicensed spectrum.
    Other 5G improvements are expected to include mobility support up to 500 km/h, 1 ms user plane latency, support for 1 million devices per square kilometer, and bandwidth of up to 1 GHz available from multiple radio carriers. As for timescale, the first 5G specification will be completed in early 2018, enabling the first standards-based networks to be deployed sometime between 2019 and 2020.

  26. 4G LTE is already providing millions of customers with super fast data, but with more and more carriers looking to flip the switch on even nippier 1 Gbps networksand phones boasting faster modems, it’s tough not to wonder if we’re closing in on next-generation 5G networks soon. Unfortunately, we’re all used to hearing that there are still some technical hurdles to overcome and plenty of infrastructure investments left to be made until consumers start receiving their first 5G signals, but the date is closing in.
    If you’ve been wondering at what stage all of this new technology is at and just how far away we still are from 5G, 5G Americas, an industry trade association and voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas, has recently published a paper looking specifically at how the industry is steadily advancing.

  28. Wrap Up

    While a lot of this still might sound like a way off, some of today’s smartphones are already actually ready to go with a number of these technologies. Carrier aggregation and LTE-Advanced has been around for a while now, and Qualcomm’s existing X12 and X16 modems inside a range of Snapdragon mobile platforms already support LTE-U. The company is preparing to sell its multi-mode 4G/5G X50 modemto partners in the coming months too, and ARM has its Cortex-R8 CPUtargeted at others companies who are looking to design their own modems.

  29. The difference with LWIP technology is that LWA aggregates LTE and Wi-Fi at the packet data layer, while LWIP aggregates or switches between LTE and Wi-Fi links only at the IP layer. So with LWA, data can be split at the smallest level for all applications, which greatly increases throughput. LWIP has to toggle IPs for each application but works well with legacy Wi-Fi hardware. Currently LWA doesn’t support uplink, but this will change

    ReplyDelete
  30. In this case, the LTE signal isn’t competing with Wi-Fi, instead the phone connects to traditional lower frequency LTE bands and common Wi-Fi hotspots simultaneously, and aggregates data across both. The upside is that it’s much more cost effective and simplifies deployment for carriers. LWA deployment also doesn’t risk clogging up Wi-Fi frequency with new LTE implementations.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The other option is to piggyback on existing Wi-Fi networks, rather than having to deploy new LTE cell technologies into the unlicensed spectrum. LTE-WLAN Aggregation (LWA) was also standardized as part of the the 3GPP’s Release-13, and enables seamless usage of both LTE and Wi-Fi networks at the same.

    ReplyDelete
  32. LAA is essentially the standardized version of LTE-U governed by 3GPP. The big difference between the two is that LAA mandates a “listen-before-talk” capability, which scans local Wi-Fi usage and automatically picks a 5 GHz channel clear of WiFi users, at the cost of some system latency. Failing that, the technology shares the same channel but LAA data is given a lower priority than other Wi-Fi users to fairly share data. Listen-before-talk is a requirement for unlicensed operation in Europe and Japan, but isn’t enshrined in regulation in the USA, Korea, or India, hence why those countries are focusing on LTE-U instead. The upcoming Enhanced LAA (eLLA) specification in Release 14 will enable uplink use of unlicensed spectrum too.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The big question raised with unlicensed spectrum is how will this affect regular Wi-Fi users? Won’t their home connection quality suffer from high congestion and phone users clogging up broadband data? Using unlicensed spectrum certainly isn’t the definitive answer to the capacity problem, and care is being take to to ensure that current infrastructure doesn’t buckle with LAA.

    ReplyDelete
  34. LTE-U is being spearheaded by Qualcomm and its partners. Essentially, the principle is have LTE bands operating within the same frequency range as common Wi-Fi signals. However, due to the regulations set by the FCC, LTE-U devices must meet the same power limitations as the Wi-Fi devices that exist today, limiting their range. Even so, adding LTE bands into the Wi-Fi spectrum is one way to provide additional capacity.

    ReplyDelete
  35. We won’t necessarily even have to wait until 5G technologies begin appearing around 2020 to start seeing the benefits of unlicensed spectrum. Smartphone processor packages are already increasing support for LTE-U, and the most recent 3GPP Release 13 outlined License Assisted Access (LAA) specifications and support for LWA/LWIP. In the US, T-Mobile already has its own LTE-U service up and running in Bellevue, WA; Brooklyn, NY; Dearborn, MI; Las Vegas, NV; Richardson, TX; and Simi Valley, CA.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Unlicensed Spectrum
    Along with new capacity from wireless cell towers, superfast 5G speeds in built up areas will likely require the use of small cell Wi-Fi aggregation back by fibre broadband in order to deal with the sheer number of users. To do this, 5G will combine aggregated LTE and 5G signals with additional data transmitted in the unlicensed spectrum. The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands are commonly used by today’s WiFi routers, with the 3.5 GHz band available to add further spectrum in the future. The FCC is also in the process of opening up the 3550 to 3700 MHz CBRS band for future use with these small cells.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The 3GPP is currently standardizing 5G frequencies in Release 15, which is expected to complete the non-standalone version of 5G in March 2018.

    ReplyDelete
  38. We’re likely to see additional repurposing of low frequency spectrum over the coming years, which will be used to expand 4G and 5G long distance coverage. As TV and radio customers move to consuming more data digitally and over the internet, the need for dedicated analog spectrum is diminishing and it makes sense to repurpose this for faster 5G data.

    ReplyDelete
  39. There’s going to more to the 5G standard than just high frequency spectrum though. Increasing coverage and bandwidth over long distances with lower frequency spectrum is just as important, not just for consumers, but for IoT and other connected markets too. In the US this year, the FCC held an auction of low-band 600 MHz spectrum previously used for TV broadcast, which T-Mobile bought 45 percent of.

    ReplyDelete
  40. With a growing consumer base, new convenience innovations for consumers, and even a financial incentive for businesses offering “free” wireless power, it’s more likely than ever that wireless charging will finally enter the mainstream. It could be well on its way to ubiquity.

  41. The new Pixels… They’re coming, folks!

    Google just officially confirmed that the new Pixels will be launched on October 4. We suspected it ( that massive billboard that Google put up definitely helped), but now we have official word in the form of the video teaser above and a sign-up pagethat tells us to stay tuned for more on October 4.
    Incidentally or not, October 4 will be the one-year anniversary of the launch of the Pixel and Pixel XL, Google’s first smartphones developed under its own brand.
    Neither the video or the sign-up page mention Pixel by name, but the source code of the website includes a reference to “pixel-teaser”
    The tag line of the teaser campaign for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is “Funny you should ask…” Like last year, Google is using the familiar image of its search box to transfer some of its brand cachet to its smartphones.
    The video shows a series of questions that are typed in the search box, starting with “What’s wrong with my phone’s battery?” and followed by “Why is my phone always out of storage?” and “Why does my phone take so many blurry photos?”
    These appear to be strong hints at some of the selling phones of the Pixel and Pixel 2 XL – battery, camera, and storage space. We’re particularly excited about the first – battery life is the one weakness of modern smartphones, and we’d love to see Google using its best-in-class engineering resources to alleviate the problem.
