Sony Xperia 5 II was introduced last month, starting to capture the attention of many users from an early age, thanks to its very compact design and impressive cameras. This is the latest top-of-the-range product from the Japanese manufacturer, and is also its first smartphone to arrive with an AMOLED panel supporting a 120Hz refresh rate.
Now, thanks to the PCB Review channel on YouTube, we have access to the first video teardown of the Xperia 5 II where it ends up being stripped of any secret. It was already known that it would be quite curious, how the manufacturer would have organized the hardware to get such a compact format on this smartphone, but that would not be the only surprise.
When disassembling the main photographic module, it was revealed that contrary to what is usual, its cameras also come covered with a layer of graphite, so that any heat accumulation in this area is dissipated. Usually, this graphite layer is only present in the battery area.
Still to more effectively control the smartphone’s temperature, Sony decided to implement copper tape behind the screen, a small (but valuable) trick that allows the Sony Xperia 5 II to maintain a pleasant temperature in any situation.
