Samsung Galaxy Nexus receives the iFixit teardown treatment

In the usual iFixit fashion today they've been nice enough to share the details on the innards of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus flagship Android smartphone. Like they always do, today they've tore it down and they give us a look at every little piece inside this new device. Plenty of pictures are available after the break. I'm just sad I don't have one yet while they are shredding it to pieces already.

From that 4.65" screen to the snazzy new 5mp camera and more they show you everything you did, or didn't want to know. Sadly we still haven't seen or heard a peep from Verizon so they are nicely tearing down the international GSM model that has been available for more than a few days already. In case you missed it, we have already been enjoying it and you can too from our Galaxy Nexus hands-on video.

We've seen their teardowns before so I wont go into much detail as all the little bits of information is available at the source link below. After looking over the teardown there is some good news here. The only soldered components are the volume switch and vibrator motor. Meaning almost everything else comes off in some way or another. For those that sadly have already injured their Galaxy Nexus, or if one becomes damaged in the future those seeking to do repairs themselves will be able to -- if they dare. Be sure and checkout the full review by SlashGear of both the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich by clicking here, and here.
