Clearly this is only the hardware cost, also it would provide perspective if there are figures regarding competing flagships at this price point.

This is a little bit of an oversimplified analysis... Component costs may have only increased by $40, but we do not have visibility of R&D, Engineering, and Testing costs. These can be quite expensive!

Unfortunately, articles like this one never mention the research and development (R&D) costs required to engineer and release a phone. The costs of the equipment and software required to design such a device, as well as the cost of prototyping and testing said device can run in the billions of dollars. Once you add the expense of paying employees (and third-party companies) to design, test, build, package, market, package, and ship the phone, Samsung is most likely not making nearly as much profit as this article suggests.
