It's time to see what's underneath that Gorilla Glass 5 back.
The folks at iFixit have managed to get their hands on a brand-new Galaxy Note 7, giving us a look at the innards of Samsung's latest flagship. The Note 7 has the same Sony IMX 260 camera sensor as the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, but we're treated to two camera sensors at the front — one for the front camera and the other for the new iris scanner.
Looking at the internal components list, it's easy to see that Samsung didn't change a whole lot when it comes to the hardware on offer from the S7 and S7 edge:
- Samsung K3RG2G20CMMGCJ 4 GB LPDDR4 SDRAM
- Samsung KLUCG4J1CB-B0B1 64 GB Universal Flash Storage 2.0
- Avago AFEM-9040 multiband multimode module
- NXP 67T05 NFC controller
- Qorvo QM78064 high band RF fusion module, TQF6260 front-end module and QM63001A diversity receive module
- Qualcomm WCD9335 audio codec
- Murata FAJ15 front-end module
- Samsung 3420S7 G707A3 Wi-Fi module
- Wacom W9018 touch control IC
- Qualcomm WTR4905 and WTR3925 RF transceivers
With the Note 7 certified IP68 for dust and water resistance, you'll find sealing gaskets for the 3.5mm jack and charging port. As for the edge screen at the front, it doesn't look like you'll be able to fix any display issues by yourself without causing damage to the panel. Other highlights include small copper heat pipes for heat dissipation and a wireless charging coil along with NFC antenna at the back.
