(Video) iPhone 8 teardown reveals huge surprises and more camera details

 Just days after the delivery confirmation of most orders of the all new iPhone 8, there have been several reviews of different kinds on the device. there has been acts against guns and fall test now here comes the tear-down of the apple iPhine 8.

The always hotly anticipated iFixit teardown of the iPhone 8 has arrived, and while it doesn’t harbor much in the way of surprises, there are a few tidbits you may want to know about hiding in there. Especially if you like hearing about things like “pixel pitch.”

Basically, the phone is, as you might have expected, very much like an iPhone 7 with a fresh coat of paint (and super-glass). It comes apart much like the 7 did, although there are a few less of Apple’s special screws, replaced by ordinary ones. The back panel, unfortunately, is more difficult to access than ever: iFixit ended up having to slice off the glass with a razor.

The battery of the 8 is slightly smaller than the 7’s: 6.96 mAh versus 7.45 in its predecessor. It shouldn’t make much of a difference, though, if Apple has improved efficiency as it claims. This teardown was of the 8, not the 8 Plus, but TechInsights did a bit of x-raying on the latter and found something that may be slightly interesting to sensor freaks.

They’re both Sony backside-illuminated chips that measure 32.8 square millimeters — but the default, wide-angle camera sensor has a pixel pitch of 1.22 micrometers, while the zoom’s has a smaller 1-micrometer pitch. Lastly, this is the first time Apple has put a “stacked” sensor in their cameras, with pixel wells, signal processing, and memory all in one thin unit.


We’ve already learned that the rear camera is probably the best ever in a phone. This teardown was of the 8, not the 8 Plus, but TechInsights did a bit of x-raying on the latter and found something that may be slightly interesting to sensor freaks.
