iFixit likes to take a look inside of the latest smartphones and laptops, however, that’s not all they do.
Today they took a look inside of the latest version of Amazon’s home personal assistant, the Amazon Echo Show and what they found is actually pretty surprising,
Starting with the build of the Echo Show, iFixit found that it looks pretty similar to one of those CRT monitors or a rear-projection TV that we all got rid of years ago, which is pretty surprising since the internals of the device also reveal quite a lot of empty space hanging around. We can’t help but think that they could have optimised this a little for a thinner build.
The internals is also pretty interesting, including an Atom X5-Z8350 chip, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of embedded flash memory.
Of course, we also already know that it includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.
They also found that it uses a 7-inch touchscreen display with 1024 × 600 resolution, but they weren’t able to determine if this is simply borrowed from the Amazon Fire, which many people have presumed.
Interestingly, the Echo Show gets 21W of power, that’s a lot for a home assistant. To end it all, iFixit gave the Echo Show a repairability score of 4 out of 10, which means that it will be moderately difficult to repair but not impossible.
