It's no secret that Samsung's curvy Galaxy S6 Edge costs a pretty penny, but there's now a good explanation as to why. IHS estimates that the raw price of assembly for a 64GB Verizon model is $290. That's more expensive to make than not just the Galaxy S5 ($256 when new), but also the 128GB iPhone 6 Plus ($263) -- if true, Samsung is giving up a lot of profit to make this exotic hardware affordable. The bendy AMOLED screen is unsurprisingly the costliest element here with an estimated $85 price, although the Exynos 7 processor ($30), 3GB of DDR4 memory ($27) and flash storage ($25) certainly aren't cheap.
