Following the Samsung Galaxy S3’s availability  in the European market, Chipworks and iFixit did a little “reverse engineering” on the device as it check out the internal components of the latest Samsung smartphone.

The de-construction of the Samsung Galaxy S3 also revealed that the device features a 2100mAh battery, which is significantly bigger compared to the first Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the Apple iPhone 4S although it was smaller than the3300mAh battery of the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx.

The teardown of the Samsung Galaxy S3 also showed that the display and the glass are fused together. Although this will increase the cost whenever it will be necessary to replace the display of the device, it uses the Corning Gorilla Glass 2 which increases its resistance from damage even as it maintains its slim design.

Another revelation from the teardown showed that the sensor on the 8MP camera of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is similar to the one used on the Apple iPhone 4S. However it remains to be seen if the Android-powered smartphone will offer similar image quality as the current version of the iPhone.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 also features a 1.9MP camera in front, which is better compared to the VGA camera that is currently being used on the iPhone 4S.

For the moment iFixit has not given the Samsung Galaxy S3 a ‘repairability score’ although this may be made available in the future.

Recent reports have indicated that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be released into the US market before the end of the month. So consumers who are not keen on importing the international version of the smartphone, which will be incompatible to the 4G LTE networks of US carriers, will just have to wait for a little while longer before they can finally get their hands on this much-anticipated Samsung smartphone.
