Deep Dive Teardown of the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G SM-A146P/DSN Smartphone
In the table below, there is a comparison of the Samsung Galaxy A13 SM-A135F/DS, Samsung Galaxy A32 5G SM-A326U and Samsung Galaxy A42 5G SM-A426U. The phone costs $247.00 and the total cost of the camera subsystem is around $38.08. The cost of individual cameras oscillates around:
- 13 MP = $11.69
- 2 MP =~ $3.65 (each)
- 50 MP = $19.09
Considering the above, it can be said that the cameras are a cheap element of the phone, which reduces production costs. The Samsung A14 has a 13 MP front camera and if we compare the price of the rear camera in this device, which has a 50 MP matrix, it’s evident that the price differs significantly in favor of the camera with fewer megapixels, i.e., the front camera is cheaper. This difference is because the cost of the IC is cheaper and cameras with a larger matrix usually have autofocus which also generates additional costs. The use of a camera with a smaller matrix reduces the cost of the entire device because such a camera is cheaper to produce due to a cheaper matrix and fewer elements used.
