is this the smallest high end board we’ve seen in a phone?
did you just know that off the top of your head? that's super impressive
Honestly, this thing is absolutely disgusting in its waste of internal volume. So many missed opportunities. They could have *at least* done what Apple does with available space and filled it up with speakers.
I mean, I actually just like using the shots for easy comparison across devices.
no chance you guys could add a a non angled shot here? maybe you took one, but for some reason didn’t publish it?
wow, that board is absurdly small. They're just an integrated modem, and an eSIM away from getting it even smaller.
also, display assembly thickness comparisons against the XS. With 3D Touch gone, that could be very interesting.
would love to see a straight on shot of the phone with the screen off. (without any angles) Would also like to a teardown of the 11 Pro, which is likely more impressive density wise. I also hope you'll continue to pray open their stacked boards.
Really impressive work. Love that another company has finally started using stacked boards. Thanks for the teardown!
Will you guys do the Note 10 as well? I'm interested in seeing whether they've accomplished a density similar to the X.
Yeah, this is important. You can sort of see it here, but it’s covered up by some type of grill.
