Samsung Galaxy S21 gets the teardown treatment ahead of release

Samsung's Galaxy S21 series is scheduled to go on sale across the world later this month. Before that though, the first teardown of Samsung's flagship phone of 2021 has hit the internet. More specifically, the cheapest trio of the Galaxy S21 series -- the Galaxy S21 5G -- has been given the teardown treatment revealing its internals.

 

Unlike the Galaxy S21 Plus and the Ultra, the regular S21 variant features a plastic back. However, the removal process for the back remains the same -- using a heat tool to soften the adhesive and then prying it open. One interesting change in the Galaxy S21 is the addition of foam balls for the stereo speaker system which helps in increasing its loudness and fullness. Samsung is also using a multi-layer board to maximize internal space.

 

 

Similar to the Galaxy Note20 series from last year, the firm is using a 3D graphite layer sheet for cooling the Snapdragon chipset. Samsung used a different cooling solution for the Exynos-variant of the Galaxy Note20 Ultra last year. It is unclear if the company is doing the same this time around as well.

 

While complex, it looks like most of the Galaxy S21 components are easily replaceable. The device got a repairability score of 7.5 out of 10 from PBKReviews meaning that most common repairs for the device should be fairly easy.

This should be imitated by all intelligent phones designs. Specially IPhone, Pixel and others.
