  • The Xiaomi 12S Ultra reportedly costs $516 to make.
  • Xiaomi’s device launched in China for ~$890.
  • This doesn’t reflect other costs associated with a smartphone though.

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is the company’s premium flagship for 2022, offering plenty of features and being part of the first wave of Leica-branded Xiaomi smartphones. The phone is only available in China for 5,999 yuan (~$890), but it looks like we now have an idea of how much it costs to make.

Counterpoint Research put together a bill of materials analysis for the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, claiming that the base 8GB/256GB model costs $516 to make. The tracking firm says processing, display, and camera sub-systems accounted for almost two-thirds of the cost.
