There are countless reviews and articles about the Galaxy S6 from Samsung, but the teardown of the latest flagship smartphone from Samsung hasn't been revealed, until now.


We have a teardown thanks to Chipworks, which ripped the part the handset to take a close look at the ICs (integrated circuit) on the device. We get an up-close-and-personal look at the 14nm FinFET-based Exynos 7420 processor, which is about 78 mm^2 - tiny in comparison to the 20nm-based Exynos 5433 which comes in at 113 mm^2.
