Acer’s massive Iconia Smart S300 Android superphone gets a good ol’ FCC teardown
PublishedOctober 12, 2011
Acer’s Iconia Smart S300 superphone first emerged early in 2011, sporting a massive 4.8-inch screen with a 1024×480 resolution. The Android 2.3 device rocks a single-core 1GHz MSM8255 SnapDragon processor, 512MB of SDRAM, front (2MP) and rear (8MP) cameras, microSD card support up to 32GB, and support for GSM/WCDMA networks worldwide.
Unfortunately, the Iconia Smart S300 was not released by an US carriers, making it difficult for anyone in the States to get their hands on Acer’s spectacular, if unwieldy superphone.
However, thanks to the FCC, we now get a closer look at the S300, including the device’s innards. FCC photos reveal SanDisk flash memory, along with what appears to be SDRAM from Hynix. We also see a power management chip from Qualcomm, although the device’s MSM processor remains covered in FCC photos.
