Pixel 6 Professional and Pixel 6 telephones have been put by means of intensive teardowns to disclose their internals and showcase their repairability. The teardowns have been carried out by PBK Evaluations and whereas the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Professional internals are nearly the identical, there are a couple of key variations that the movies spotlight. The 2 telephones are bundled with lots of warmth dissipation and the teardown showcases the mmWave structure as properly. The movies focus primarily on the repairability of the 2 telephones, and each the display screen and fingerprint sensor labored high-quality after alternative.
PBK Evaluations has posted two movies that element the teardown of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Professional. As soon as each the telephones are opened up, they each are lined in a big copper warmth sink. There’s additionally an aluminium mid-plate under for extra warmth dissipation that’s linked to the chips with a thermal tape.

It is usually revealed that mmWave antenna is positioned on the highest fringe of the Pixel 6 for areas and carriers that assist it. For areas the place there isn’t any mmWave, that actual property is crammed with a placeholder metallic block. mmWave is claimed to allow excessive obtain speeds on 5G telephones, however simply placing in a single is questionable. It’s probably to be blocked by the hand when in panorama mode and Qualcomm has even reportedly urged that the sign will function higher if there are over 4 mmWave antennas built-in inside any cellphone. With only one mmWave antenna, positioned in a poor style, it stays to be seen whether or not the Pixel 6 is ready to ever catch quick velocity connectivity, or not.
As for repairability, PBK Evaluations studies that the USB Sort-C port is soldered onto the motherboard making it tough to restore. The video additionally reveals that every thing inside is glued collectively, which means that restore would result in compromise on the telephones’ water resistance. The video particulars that it did not face any points whereas changing the display screen, however the fingerprint sensor alternative required them to run some calibration software program after which the cellphone needed to be manufacturing facility reset.
