Google Nexus Q gets the iFixit teardown treatment

July 5, 2012

You’ve already seen the official Google pictures of the little bits and pieces that made up the Nexus Q. Now, the folks at iFixit have done their own disassembling of the glowing orb, and you get to experience the tearing down process of Google’s social media streaming player step by step.

But first, there’s more to the Nexus Q than just its fortune-telling ability, as the device also packs the following specs:

  • Dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor with SGX540 GPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB internal storage
  • 32 RGB perimeter and 1 RGB mute indicator LED
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
iFixit: Nexus Q mainboard

According to iFixit, the Nexus Q has more circular parts than any other devices that they’ve torn down in the past. We guess it’s the main theme of the Q. The device weighs 923 grams, with the base being the biggest contributor thanks to its hefty 423 grams weight. Overall, the Nexus Q is given a Repairability Score of 8/10, which is just a notch better than the 7/10 score that the Nexus 7 got.

If you want to see layers and layers of rings of awesomeness inside the Nexus Q, hit the link below for the complete high-resolution pictures and guides. Bearing in mind that these are professional folks using professional tools, we don’t recommend you trying dissect your very own $299 Nexus Q.
