And then, the resolution doesn't really make a difference in price (some cents) and things like screen and fingerprint sensor are also there on any other smartphone.
The majority of the price is the want of money by the western companies like Samsung, Apple, Sony, HTC, Google.... the developement of the OS (where Apple invests money with it's 5 years of support) and of course the research and development. That's why companies without innovation like OnePlus simply can take the existing parts, refine them a little bit and then sell a phone almost as good or even better than those Samsung and Apple flagships for half the price

No 4K, not even now that VR is huge (Sony had that 1.5 year ago)
Low Ram last year whilst all chinese makers had 6GB models.
Snapdragon processor which is punished by Kirin and Apple A SoCs
Even in things she used to lead (ability to adapt a huge battery on their phones' back) is left behind.
Samsung is as overpriced as Apple these days ... only with worse performance and camera ... good riddance Samsung I say.
Who in this day and age still expects Samsung's phones nevermind their flagships to be cheap? Samsung phones stopped being cheap generations ago. Also, if that's a rumour on the S8's price tag, I shudder to think how much the iPhone 8 will cost.

I can already tell you the main features: No home button, bigger and better screen with force touch, better camera (possibly duo), better processor and battery life, quicker charging, water proof. done.

And superamoled panel which definitely should cost more than iphone ips panel. Plus, the curved screen(gaining more popularity among chinese brand too). The QHD resolution compare to iphone measely 750p resolution worth the overprice-ness. The heart rate monitor exclusively used by samsung only add to the cost. Embedded fingerprint sensor and iris scanner too add more to the price. Samsung even introduce first ever stereo speaker for S series. So, comparing all the hardware with iphone 7 you cant really call s8 overpriced. I would be surprised if the sell all of that under $700. This would destroy flagships market. Other manufacturer would be pressured to at least have all of these premium hardware in their flagship phone and put the price tag below $600. Can you really put all this hardware in one phone and sell it for $600? I dont think so. The chinese brand will be pressured too much if samsung did that.
mixa, 17 Jan 2017This pricing has an explosive potential!Get your coat, don't take stand up comedy as a career option. Stick to the day job buddy.
I guess the word rumor means nothing to anyone in the comments

You use SD card to store media not to stream or record videos.
On cheap 64GB card that cost me less than 25euro I have the same "performance" in sending HD videos and the same performance in games when I put data on that sd card instead of internal memory.
Where do you people get such weird informations? Of course when you buy chinese/slow card you will have problem, that why, just like with phones, you need to spend those damn 5min thinking what to buy.
