See what's inside the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL in new videos
The recently revealed Lumia 950 smartphone from Microsoft may not be on sale yet, but it looks like a company managed to get a hold of one of its units, and proceeded to tear it apart to see what's inside.
The Poland-based Kapion LAB posted up videos showing their tear down work on YouTube, along with another video that shows how to reassemble some of its parts. Both videos offer good views of the Lumia 950 XL's camera, battery, boards and more. Of course, while these videos are cool to watch from an educational perspective, it should be noted that owners of the Lumia 950 XL who decide to disassemble or reassemble their phone will void their warranty.
Thanks to Philipp for the tip!

If he wants to play, let him show some support.
And for our friend who says no one wanted it! Then why is it the fastest selling Windows Phone in the US.
You really must not want one. You only bought 6.
And support for Windows from T-Mobile? Where's the Denim update for the 635, or even 8.1 update 2.
If you treat the low and midline phones you have like trash, why would someone trust you with a flagship?
If John Legere is serious about listening to customers, listen to them all. Lip service doesn't work long.
My mistake, they haven't put out the Denim update yet. It's only been out a year. "Coming Soon"?
I like T-Mobile, unfortunately they're just not interested in either Windows phones, or dealing with Microsoft. To their credit, Microsoft apparently hasn't given T-Mobile much support for the Windows phones they did have.
Ok, AT&T got first dibs on the 950. They do have (including Cricket &WalMart) 50% of the US Windows Phone market share. T-Mobile along with MetroPCS (and WalMart) have 20%.
What needs to happen is for Nadella and Legere get together and discuss this. It ain't gonna happen over Twitter.
We all have visited carrier stores to find out we knew more about Windows phones than anyone there. And by the way, from a MetroPCS store rep yesterday, "We don't have those anymore" when asked about the 640.
Microsoft's approach will be slow and deliberate. It'll be interesting to see if it really happens.
November should be interesting.
1. Very easy to assemble and dissemble.
2. Instead of liquid cooling, thermal paste with copper cooler is used. Miniature version of laptop cooler. Which is cool. So liquid cooling was marketing mumbo jumbo!? Anyway, First Mobile phone with cooling system of my knowledge.
3. Less connector, less hassle for DIY job.
4. Interestingly Dual sim variant was not introduced on the event. But any one can make dual variant just by changing the back cover and buying a sim socket from third party.
Give us these extra interesting devices asap.
Its hard to keep patience for a patient :p
