Lol I am not sure what industry you work in but I assure you that fixing a unit cost is the first element of any purchase contract. This particular contract may include clauses that allow the manufacturer to raise or renegotiate prices if certain conditions are met, such as inflation or labour costs reaching agreed-to levels, but Samsung would never be given the ability by either Apple or the courts to raise prices arbitrarily. The idea that they could suits the revenge wishes of the Apple-haters, but is so divorced from reality that it shows to what extent they're willing to believe anything so long as it lines up with their prejudices.
