Can't find GearVR External Accelerometer, Gyroscope
Can someone, anyone, do a proper teardown of Samsung GearVR Consumer Edition V1 (CV1), released November 2015? There is NO GearVR teardown on ifixit! The only teardown I could find online was a half-finished teardown for a GearVR Innovator Edition on slashgear. I'm looking for the external accelerometer and external gyroscope in the GearVR, can't find them?! Thanks so much!
So there is no official teardown for Samsung / Oculus GearVR Consumer Edition V1 (CV1). There is this debate whether or not there are external accelerometer and gyroscope in this version of the GearVR. Now GearVR CV1 is only compatible with S6 or better phones, which all have high quality 9-axis MEMs sensors in them (3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis magnetometer / compass), so I don't see a need for external accelerometer and gyroscope. But for the life of me I can't find an external motion sensor / MEMs / IMU in the GearVR. I took pictures of all the ICs I could find in the GearVR, I could only find 4.
Besides these 4 chips, there are the 2 USB ports (one to connect to the phone and one for passthrough) and the proximity sensor. I would be so grateful if anyone out there would do a proper teardown and in the process point out where the external sensors are for acceleration and gyration. Or come to the same conclusion that there doesn't appear to be an external motion sensor / MEMs / IMU in the GearVR CV1.

Is this a good question?
