Market research firm, IHS iSuppli has estimated the cost of building the iPhone 5 with 16 GB at around $200, more expensive than the 4S was at launch, NBC News has reported. The most expensive single item in the iPhone 5's bill of materials is the screen, according to iSuppli; by integrating the touch panel and increasing the size to 4" from 3.5", the cost for that one component jumps to an estimated $44. The new LTE-capable wireless chip is the next-most-expensive piece, costing around $34, significantly more than the 4S's more limited chipset.
