iPhone X Teardown: Welcome to the Future of Smartphones

November 3, 2017

Today, Nov. 3, is an iPhone launch day, which means it’s once again time for a product teardown from the folks over at iFixit. Yes, the iPhone X teardown is here.

As it always does, iFixit has uncovered all of the important parts on the new handset, including the new TrueDepth camera system, two-cell battery pack, Qi-based inductive charging coil, and more.

Among the highlights:

  • The iPhone X logic board is 70 percent of the size of the iPhone 8 logic board.
  • The 5.8-inch handset has an all-new L-shaped two-cell battery pack rated at 2,716mAH. This is slightly larger than the iPhone 8 Plus battery.
  • Every piece that makes up the TrueDepth camera is on display, including the IR dot projector and flood illuminator. These are the parts which slowed production on the phone.

First announced on Sept. 12, the iPhone X officially arrives in 55 countries and territories today.
