Whether you’re a phone fan or a gamer, you’d understandably be pretty excited to get your hands on a SonyEricsson Xperia Play “PlayStation Phone” in advance of its release: brag to your friends, maybe even try to flip it on eBay, sure. Chinese site TGBUS decided to go in another direction, and has taken a screwdriver to its Xperia Play, showing us the first complete dissection of the Android smartphone.
To be fair, the TGBUS guys already have had their fun showing off the phone, and have so cleanly and precisely disassembled their Xperia Play that the phone should be perfectly fine once they put it back together. All the same, we’d likely be shaking too much to hold the screwdriver securely.
For close-ups on the phone’s camera sensor, RAM chip, cellular modem, touchscreen controller, and all the rest of the components that make up the Play, check out the full gallery of tear-down pictures available at TGBUS.
In other Xperia Play news, a video has surfaced showing original PlayStation games running on the smartphone. While this is just the work of an emulator, consider it a tease as to the sort of content we could be seeing once the Play is finally released.
