June 23, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The iPhone 4 handset has been disassembled completely and the entire process along with its internal parts have been displayed as a picture essay on the iFixit website. The next-generation iPhone has been confirmed to possess a 512 MB RAM, as a result of the teardown.

The teardown has revealed certain changes in the design of the new iPhone. The two screws fitted in the bottom of the screen, when removed, helps in removing the rear case and not the glass in front. The front glass replacement process is described as likely to become a challenging one.

The iPhone 4’s 1420 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery that is revealed when the rear panel is removed, is shown to be slightly large. The phone has also been programmed to select and work on the less-congested network band irrespective of the actual strength of the signal, in an effort to get the best quality signal.

The iPhone 4 teardown also shows the 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, which is reportedly present in Samsung’s Wave S5800 smartphone as well. The front panel glass is also revealed to be made of Gorilla Glass, which is a sheet glass that has been chemically strengthened and is reportedly stiffer and stronger than plastic.

The iPhone 4 teardown shows the position of each of the internal components of the device and also lists their configuration. Check out the iFixit site for the complete picture set.
