Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus gets the teardown treatment

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus gets the teardown treatment
The Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus is finally up for sale and while we knew it’s going to be a hair thicker than the international version, we’re still curious to find out whether there have been any other changes on the inside. After all, there were so many delays that Samsung might have even made some changes.

iFixit tore down the Galaxy Nexus earlier when the GSM version became available and gave it a rather average repairability score partly because of the glass being fused to both the display and the frame. Now, the CDMA Verizon version is out and it has both similarities and discrepancies.

The battery on both handsets for example has an NFC chip and is easily replaceable as the back cover pops up, and the screen is similarly assembled. Hit the source link below for a step-by-step guide and all the pictures of the insides of the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

"The battery on both handsets for example has an NFC chip"

This is FALSE!!! The battery only has an NFC ANTENNA, NOT the NFC chip! I don't understand how hard this is to understand. I have seen this repeated over and over and it isn't true.

I registered just to post this. :)

Where did you read it had no nfc chip? According to this articlehttp://www.phonearena.com/news/Google-Wallet-to-be-blocked-by-Verizon-on-Samsung-GALAXY-Nexus_id24378 it does.

Why are you quoting a source I said already got it wrong a few times? Why do you think I posted what I did? Here is iFixit's teardown of the Galaxy Nexus.

From Step 5 :Lo and behold, there's a sweet antenna hiding underneath the battery's shiny wrapper.

From Step 12: According to Chipworks, this two-die package houses an MCU and a PN544 NFC controller.

NO NFC chip on the battery, only the NFC antenna.
