Samsung Galaxy S 4G Teardown

iFixit has done the usual, and taken apart a Samsung Galaxy S 4G smartphone.

This particular teardown included setting parts of the phone on fire to test and see what materials were used. Specifically, the team were looking for traces of magnesium.

Some interesting points include a higher capacity battery that is 1650mAh. iFixit say this increased battery storage might be a result of the higher power demands these faster phones are making.

512MB or DRAM is set up as a package on package with a 1GHz processor. Other than that, fairly standard chips were found inside which also includes the chip for 4G connectivity. Check out the images below to see a bit more of what goes on inside the device. The first image is of the magnesium being tested for.
