First Samsung Galaxy S7 Teardown Hits The Web

Samsung unveiled its Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge at MWC. Barely a day has passed and people have already started to teardown the flagships.

The teardown comes from the Russians via who managed to tear the S7 and got a good look inside the device.

Some of the information revealed by the Russian site is the same as what Samsung told us yesterday.

However, some of the information has been exclusively revealed by the mentioned forum.

Like the predecessor, the Galaxy S7 is dismantled from the back. This implies that replacing the display is hard, while replacing the battery is very easy.

The Gorilla Glass panel is glued to the frame. The same glue is what provides waterproofing.

So if you DIY your handset, you will end up converting your Smartphone into a non-waterproof device.

As for the microSD card slot and SIM both have a gasket. The Russian forum also pointed out the use of a heat pipe to cool the Exynos 8890.

Even if the chipset got a little warm during the test, the temperature level was still under control.

As for the volume and power buttons, they got the most praise for being reliable and durable.

Layer by layer unveiling also showed various chips. Extra praise was also given to various components which are easily removable and are not directly soldered to the main board.
