Before we dive in blindly, let's get some 10-ray X-ray recon from our friends at Creative Electron.
Here's what we found:
Not one, but two battery cells. That's a first in an iPhone!
A super-tiny logic board footprint. Based on the overlaid solder points, it looks like there are two stacked layers.
To make room for the extra front-facing sensors, the earpiece speaker has been shifted down quite a bit.
There's a mysterious chip between the Taptic Engine and lower speaker—we're curious to see what's down there!
