Samsung Galaxy S III gets the teardown treatment

Rumor, leak, speculation, pre-announcement, announcement, release, root, recovery, custom ROM, waiting for new software releases, replacement.

For major phones, a teardown from the dedicated folks at iFixIt has also become pretty commonplace, and the latest to get the treatment is the Galaxy S III.

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.

DROID RAZR torn down by iFixIt and Motorola

Have you been wondering how Motorola crammed so much high-end hardware into the DROID RAZR's slim frame, especially considering its beefy battery and LTE radio? Well so have the folks at iFixIt, only they have the expertise to tear apart that Kevlar case without destroying the goodies within. They've done their customary teardown, albeit with some non-standard tools - I'm told on good authority that that wicked little tool below is a Japanese carpentry saw called a dozuki.

Acer Iconia Smart S300 4.8″ smartphone clears the FCC, gets a teardown

The Acer Iconia Smart has just cleared the FCC and is headed our way soon. Spotted at the FCC getting a little teardown we now get to see a few of the internals of this huge 4.8" phone-tablet hybrid from Acer. It was first announced back in February and we even have some hands-on video from MWC2011 of the device, it's a unique smartphone that is for sure. Back in May it was delayed and the last we heard it was slated for a September release. At least it's finally hitting the FCC, we can expect a release shortly I'm assuming.
