The Google Pixel 3 XL launched recently we have seen a number of videos of the handset and now the guys from iFixit have taken one apart to find out what is inside.
It was discovered that the new Pixel 3 XL uses an AMOLED display panel from Samsung, the previous handset had one from LG.
Dismembering the Google Pixel 3 XL gave us quite a fright. The display-first design we saw in the Pixel 2 has unexpectedly disappeared! But what really shocked us was discovering the all-new Samsung AMOLED panel. (Jury’s out on whether Google severed their display relationship with LG, or if they’re just double-sourcing their screens.) Along with this new display, it seems like the Pixel has been hanging out with the troublemaking Galaxy line, leaving it with familiar-looking antenna assemblies, a stubborn battery, and a tough-to-replace display.
iFixit scores devices on a scale of 1 to 10 for repairability, 1 means it is very difficult to repair and 10 means it is easy to repair.
The new Pixel 3 XL managed to score just 4 out of 10 on the iFixit repair index, this means that the handset is fairly hard to repair. Head on over to iFixit at the link below for full details on the Pixel 3 XL teardown.
