PS Vita Gutted – Reveals Complex Back Panel Config

Posted by at 10:57 am on December 19, 2011

Following the huge Japanese launch of the PS Vita this week, it was inevitable that teardowns would follow. The first has come from Tech-On, which has gutted the innards of the ARM-based quad-core handheld gaming powerhouse. In addition to the silicon, the pictures (embedded below) also highlight the complexity of the device also apparent in the rear panel.

The PS Vita is held together by just eight screws in the external casing that are relatively easily removed with two hidden under a cover making an otherwise straightforward process slightly more fiddly.

Within, or attached to the rear panel, are variously the PS Vita’s rear touch panel, four antenna modules (two for 3G and two more for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS), a loudspeaker, and a 2,210mAh battery.

The front is section is comprised of three PCBs (printed circuit boards) that are attached to each other by pink and blue screws. The Samsung-manufactured OLED display is separated from the front cover with some screws.
