According to the reverse engineering company, the iPhone 13 Pro comes with LPDDR4X (6GB) RAM instead of the newer LPDDR5 variant. The iPhone 13 and 13 Pro appear to be using the same GPU at first glance. Apple said the standard models have a 4-core GPU and the Pros come with a 5-core GPU.
The iPhone 13 has a 1.7 µm wide camera, which means it has larger pixels than the iPhone 12 which has 1.4 µm pixels. The Pro model has a wide camera with 1.9 µm pixels, compared to 1.4 µm pixels of its predecessor.

IPhone 13 Pro sells for 1.9 times its build cost
The iPhone 13 Pro has been equipped with a more expensive chip, NAND memory and display subsystem, and the cost
of the main case has also increased, which is why it is apparently more expensive. to manufacture than the iPhone 12 Pro. To be precise, the materials and components needed to make the iPhone 13 Pro cost $ 570. This estimate likely does not include other costs such as software, intellectual property, labor, and shipping.
Apple sells the phone for $ 1,099. This means that the retail price is 1.9 times the cost of construction. For the iPhone 12 Pro, the item cost was $ 548.
The items needed to make the 256GB Galaxy S21 Plus cost $ 508. It has 8 GB of RAM and costs $ 1,049. The final price is just over double the cost of the items.
Based on the information available, Samsung appears to be raking in roughly the same amount of dough as Apple, when it comes to unit sales. Although this strategy works for Apple and the iPhone 13 is apparently on track to be this year’s one best smartphone, Samsung should ideally reconsider it.
