The Galaxy Note 8 display is also Samsung’s largest on a premium device, beating out only the Galaxy S8+, which features a 6.2-inch display. The device features Samsung’s infinity display design, which includes an 18:9:5 aspect ratio and an on screen home button.

Samsung is well known for having quality displays. With each premium device release, bills of materials often show that Samsung’s displays are typically the most expensive components on their devices. Analysts have not yet revealed their cost teardowns for the Galaxy Note 8; however, the Galaxy S8 costs Samsung approximately $308 to produce, with about $85 of that being spent on the display and touchscreen alone. Considering the Galaxy S8 is considerably smaller in size than the Galaxy Note 8, it is safe to say that producing the display for the newer device would be even more expensive.
