Samsung takes us on an inside tour of Galaxy S8 and S8+: see what it's made of

Samsung has released an official teardown of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, its flagship phones and the first ones with the new 'infinity' bezel-less display.

In this post, Samsung shows what are the key components of the Galaxy S8 and where they are located.

Samsung shows key components like the heat pipe that helps cool the powerful Snapdragon 835 system chip. You can also see the positioning of the processor itself, the memory location and other curious details like the NFC / MST / Wireless charging connectors at the central back part of the phone. Another interesting detail that this post shows is the pressure sensor, an innovation that comes with the Galaxy S8 and that provides that tactile feedback when you press the virtual home key, so that it feels like pressing a real, physical button.

For this and all details around interesting Galaxy S8 components, check out the pictures below and the teardown at the source link.

Yes I know, but iFixit's actually teaches you on how to disassemble the device, and gives a bit more detail.

Indeed, we have seen it countless number of times where companies that made there own product are less competent than outsiders to tear down there products. Latest big example : Note 7.

But Samsung doesn't have to tear down the product. They simply would use photos of the photos of the parts. Just because they put them together, doesn't mean its any easier for them to take them apart.

The S8 Plus is made of 90% awesomeness, and 10% bad assness.

100% beast!!!!! Sounds like you aren't having nay buyers regret. Damn good replacement for the note 7, until the Note 8 is available! We are loving ours too. Best S I've ever own. The only 2 I've used were S3 and S6 edge/edge+. I loved my S6 edge 128 even more than the edge+. But the S8+ is certainly gotten me past missing my Note 7 a bit.
