New iPhone 4G on the Bench, Reveals Large Battery & Smaller Brains

April 21, 2010, By Alex Ion

If you’ve been browsing the Internet these days and have the slightest interest in mobile phones, you probably know that Gizmodo managed to get their hands on the iPhone 4G (or iPhone HD) and broke the news to the whole world. Well folks, the lucky chaps from Gizmodo put their goggles on and started to tore the new iPhone into pieces to see what’s hiding under the sleek frame.

The thing that impressed us the most is the very large battery that seems to be taking “around 50% of the phone, give or take. Very impressive,” they said, but too bad it’s not a removable battery — I’m sure you would’ve loved that.

After taking all the screws off (some 40-50) the main logic board is revealed– and won’t you know it, this one is about 1/3 the size of the board in the 3GS version. But don’t expect to get to its brains, as Apple put in some safety measures and encased in metal all around. Of course you can take that off, but that means you’re looking at a disabled iPhone, one that you can’t use anymore.

Too bad they couldn’t see if there’s an A4 processor, like in the iPad 🙁

Head on to Gizmodo’s bench and see what else they found out inside the new iPhone 4G.
