Huawei P30 Pro rear camera component cost revealed


If we would have to pick any single stand-out feature of the Huawei P30 Pro, it would easily be the rear camera module and its jaw-dropping image capture qualities. That’s why it’s easy to see that the handset’s rear cameras including the TOF sensor is the costliest amongst current flagships, as stated by a Cowen investor note obtained by AppleInsider. The note includes an analysis of the bill of materials which shows the costs of Galaxy S10+ and iPhone XS modules as well.

The iPhone’s camera comes at the lowest cost and is $34.50 per device while the Galaxy S10+ costs $44 per device. In comparison, the P30 Pro module (including the TOF sensor) costs $56. Both Samsung and Huawei have spent 1.4 times and 1.9 times respectively more than Apple.

Cowen’s report also mentions the prices of the displays and here is where Apple pays a bit more than Huawei. The S10+ display is worth $125 while the iPhone display is worth $120 and the P30 Pro display is $110. It’s also worth noting that both Apple competitors have relatively newer devices while the iPhone XS is an older competitor which gave Huawei and Samsung time to learn from their competitors.
