Samsung Galaxy S8: official dismantling of the flagship phone
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is a phone with a really interesting design. The Korean company has achieved a new design with almost no frames that attract attention. And it has maintained the good characteristics of the previous model. Today from Samsung itself we have explained how it is built inside. The company has published two images in which we can see all the components of the Samsung Galaxy S8. Let’s take a look.
Samsung Galaxy S8: Screen
We start at the front. Here we have the screen, a curved OLED panel with 18.5: 9 format. A screen that fills 80% of the front of the device. This is covered by a glass Gorilla Glass 5. Also on the front, we have the DDI (Display Driver IC), which serves to reduce energy consumption without reducing image quality. In addition to the pressure sensor, which is installed under the screen of Samsung Galaxy S8.
The front camera is located on the top bezel and features an 8-megapixel sensor and f/1.7 aperture. It is also equipped with facial recognition technology. Right next to it we have the iris scanner and the usual sensors, such as light and proximity.
Samsung Galaxy S8: Processor
In this image of the front of the Samsung Galaxy S8, we also see some internal components. For example, we have the processor (Mobile AP), a chip made in 10nm. We also see the memories, 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and 64 GB UFS of internal storage.
The company has redesigned the PCB (the main board) to minimize the space between the processor and the cooling system. This ensures that the mobile can perform very heavy tasks without heating up.
Finally, we have the slot for the microSD cards at the top and the speaker at the bottom.
Samsung Galaxy S8: Camera
Koreans have also taught us the components of the Samsung Galaxy S8 from the other side. If we look at the image of the back the first thing that catches the eye is the camera. As you know, it is a Dual Pixel sensor with 12 megapixels and aperture f/1.7. Right next to the camera we have the fingerprint scanner and the heart rate sensor.
Much of the back is occupied by the battery. The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a battery of 3,000 mAh and the Galaxy S8 + with a 3.500 mAh. The battery has a system of shock absorbers and rubber to protect it. At the bottom, we have the USB-C connector to charge the mobile and transfer data.
The USB-C port also allows the mobile to connect to DeX Station, an accessory that allows you to use your smartphone as a desktop computer, providing a quick and secure transition.
Samsung Galaxy S8: Bluetooth 5.0
Among the many sensors and chips we have Bluetooth 5.0, making it one of the first phones with this system. This version offers twice the speed of data transfer, increases data transmission capacity by 800% and can cover four times more space than the previous version.
We also have the antenna Wi-Fi, the wireless charging system, the NFC chip and the antennas LTE category 16. These are compatible with LTE networks at 1 Gbps.
Finally, on the lower right side we have the headphone jack. It was speculated for a while with the possibility that the S8 did not include this connector, but finally the company decided to continue with it. A decision that securely support the majority of users.
All components are sealed to protect against water and dust. That’s why the Samsung Galaxy S8 is IP68 certified. That is, it can be submerged for 30 minutes without, in theory, being damaged.
