Google Nexus One Teardown

iFixit managed to quickly get their hands on the new phone from Google [GOOG] called the Nexus One that was announced and put on sale yesterday.

The Google Nexus One has a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor inside and has a very nice 3.7 inch 480 x 800 WVGA AMOLED screen that has capacitive touch. Google describe the phone as being a “superphone” due to a few features not currently found on other Android phones.

As always, iFixit were very quick to break apart the $530 phone to see what was inside. Tools required to get the phone apart included the iPod Opening Tools, a T4 Torx Screwdriver and a Philips #00 Screwdriver.

To start off with the back cover was very easily removed to reveal the battery compartment along with the LED flash, 5 megapixel camera and an external speaker. Of course the warranty VOID if removed sticker could be found which iFixit pay no attention to. After removing a few screws and using the iPod opening kit the Nexus One came apart where the rest of the tead down occurs to reveal an 802.11n wireless chip along with other goodies.

Full details of the teardown can be found at iFixit.
