E Dismantling: In-depth analysis of Huawei P40 material cost, domestic components account for more than half

The main control IC part of Huawei mobile phones has always been dominated by HiSilicon chips. According to the internal information of mobile phones we disassembled in the past, including power management, power amplifier and other HiSilicon chips, these models are almost universal in Huawei mobile phones. When analyzing the Honor 30S, we pointed out that the advantage of self-developed chips is that the cost is controllable, and it is not easy to be stuck under the external factors of force majeure. Of course, the large shipment of Huawei mobile phones is also one of the prerequisites.

As Huawei’s flagship mobile phone focusing on imaging, the new-generation P40 series main camera adopts Sony’s newly customized IMX700 sensor, with a 1/1.28-inch outsole COMS, 50 million pixels, 23mm focal length and F1.9 aperture. The RYYB arrangement further increases the light input by 40% and improves the level of night shooting.

However, the dismantled P40 and the other two mobile phones in this series are relatively uniform only in the configuration of the main camera, and there are many gaps in the ultra-wide-angle and telephoto lenses. The P40 Pro+ also has one more ultra-telephoto lens. . It is worth mentioning that the main camera of the P40 does not support optical image stabilization.

Among the 1815 components of Huawei P40, Japan provides 1550 components, accounting for 85.4% of the total, with the highest number of components and 23.5% of the cost. The main areas are camera sensors and flash memory;

China provides 205 components, accounting for 11.3% of the total, accounting for 62.3% of the cost, and the cost is the highest, the main areas are IC and screen;

The United States provides 50 components, accounting for 2.7% of the total, and the cost accounts for 7.1%, and the main area is IC;

South Korea provides 1 component, accounting for 0.05% of the total, and the cost accounts for 6.2, and the main area is memory;

Other countries and regions provided 8 components, accounting for 0.4% of the total, and the cost accounted for 0.7%, and the assembly cost was $3.8.

We have sorted out the top five components of Huawei P40 in terms of cost. Several core components inside the mobile phone are all on the list. Some domestic components of the main control IC of the P40 account for a high proportion and are expensive: the screen and SoC are all domestic components, so the cost accounts for relatively high. Since the front and rear lens modules are all made by Sony except for OmniVision, and the ROM is made by Toshiba, the cost of Japanese components is the second, but it only accounts for more than 20%. Under Huawei’s de-beautification, what we see is a diversified supply chain system.

We estimate that the overall cost of Huawei P40 is about US$305.88 (including assembly fees), or about RMB 2186.80, of which the cost of the main control IC is about US$160.05, accounting for 52.47%. The price of 6GB+128GB on the P40 official website is 4188 yuan, and the price-to-cost ratio is about 1.9. The larger the number, the higher the relative profit. For comparison, the price-to-cost ratio of Xiaomi Mi 10 is 1.48.

From the overall point of view of the Huawei P40 series, if there are certain requirements for the image, then the P40 Pro is undoubtedly the best choice. Compared with the other two mobile phones, the P40 is still more castrated, but its advantage is also in 6 .1 inch plus 175g weight, it is a good choice for users who prefer small screen.
