Samsung does its own Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge teardown

Samsung offers another look at the inside of its new phones.

While iFixit is quick to tear apart new devices to gauge repairability, Samsung has its own look inside the new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The company offers a breakdown of the components that make up the two handsets rather than a step-by-step process. However, it does include a bit of an explanation on that cooling heat pipe. iFixit noted that the part was more like a "copper twig," and Samsung says the pipe condenses vapor to liquid in order to keep the temperature down. The feature is meant to lend a hand with processor-heavy tasks, like gaming, dissipating heat with that pipe and a thin thermal spreader. There's a close-up look at the rest of the device as well, if you're after a different perspective than the teardown earlier in the week.

Samsung also debuted a new version of its "Over the Horizon" jingle for this year's Galaxy line. The company tapped jazz/funk band Dirty Loops for the remake, which certainly gives the tune a new spin. In an attempt to get the song stuck in your head, the Samsung theme has lyrics for the first time as well. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners can opt for this to be their ringtone or alarm and the full version of the song will be available in the Music app. For now, you can enjoy it here:
