    Some very interesting infomation has surfaced from a Techinsights teardown of the MI 10.

    They have produced a chart showing the estimated costs of all the components used in the 12/256 Gb version of the MI 10.

    Unfortunately it does not match each price to a component, but at least the most prominent components should be obvious.

    The estimated build cost of the MI 10 comes to $440.
    So with this as a rough guide we can see who is actually doing what when it comes to margins.

    would be nice to know what exactly the various cost segments stand for...

    The source article isn't helpful either...

    True, hopefully on their usual revisit on the subject they will add more details.

    I did a bit more digging and if you register you can get a more detailed report here.
    I might do it tomorrow.
