Google Nexus S Teardown

iFixit has taken apart the new Google Nexus S. They have given the Nexus S a repairability score of 7 out of 10 due to needing a heat gun to separate the glass from the LCD.

One observation they made was that the curved Nexus S screen has only curved glass and not a curved LCD. iFixit found the Contour Display name a little misleading.

A few observations made show that the Super AMOLED display does away with a digitizer and that capacitive touch sensors are integrated in to the display.

Inside a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird chip was found along with a memory package from Samsung. 16GB of flash from SanDisk was found as well as several other chips.

The device has a 1500mAh battery that provides about 6.7 hours of talk time per charge.
