Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon gets torn down and dissected

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon has only been available for consumers for a little more than 24 hours, but that’s not going to stop folks out there from finding out what makes the device tick. Device teardowns are some of the most popular ways to find out what’s inside a device, as sometimes it’s not just enough to hear it from the manufacturer. Thanks this time to ZDNET, we get to see what’s inside the 4G LTE-enabled version of the world’s first device launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

There are some similarities, obviously, but there are also some major differences. You’ll find a smaller microSIM slot that has also been moved from where the slot is seen on the GSM-based model. And there are obviously some major differences in the radios. All of this should be expected, obviously, considering the different technology used to connect the device to the network.

In any event, head on through the source link if you want to get into the full details of the teardown.
