According to a preliminary estimate by teardown specialists at TechInsights, the bill of materials for Apple's 16-Gb version of the iPhone 5 comes at an estimated $167.50. The estimate for Apple's latest marquee phone is about $35 higher than a comparable version of the iPhone 4s.

The preliminary analysis by TechInsights, which is owned by UBM, is based on initial information about the IPhone 5 that was released by Apple in San Francisco on Wednesday (Sept. 12). The IPhone 5, which is scheduled to go on sale Sept. 21, is expected to sell for about $199 for the 16-Gb version.

TechInsight analysts also based their estimates on previous versions of 16-Gb IPhones, including the known features and cost of components for the IPhone 4 and 4S.
