I have heard that S3 would include a wireless charging function, but on the pictures I do not see any clue about a receiver coil embedded behind the battery(or maybe in the battery itself). Any confirmation of such function?
Interesting tear-down! If you don't want to scroll through 21 pages - and even on a moderately fast link this gets really tedious, click on the [=|print] icon at the bottom of any page, and you get it all on one page - scroll to read or print this to read afterwards!
One question, do you have to request permission to Samsung or any of the phone's manufacturer to make a Teardown? How about the BOM you present... how do you get it? is it just by identifying the found chips in the boards through the teardown?
It's good to see a teardown since this way we can know who are the chips more common in the phones nowadays.
And guys, why such a big fuzz about the 21 pages. Seeing 19 pictures isn't that big of a deal.
Just to put this out there - I'm not going to load 21 pages of advertisements to look at a few pictures. Had the article extended beyond a few pages, I wouldn't have read it at all. These are the kinds of things that have caused me to permanently abandon other websites in the past. Something to keep in mind for the future.
