What does 4G look like? We can't say for sure, but we do know what the inside of a 4G phone looks like. The glorious vandals at gadget repair site iFixit have torn apart the Samsung Galaxy S 4G for a closer look at a 4G phone.
Sadly, 4G in Britain hasn't progressed beyond isolated trials yet, but let's take a look inside the next-generation phone anyway. The S 4G packs a 1GHz processor, 480x800-pixel Super AMOLED display and 5-megapixel camera, with a video-chat camera in the front.
The 4G part is an ST-Ericsson Thor M5730 cellular modem. It's capable of sucking up data from the Internet at 21Mbps over a wireless HSPA+ connection. Realistically, however, real-world speeds won't be anything like that.
HSPA+ is just one of the technologies being bandied about as 4G. Rival technologies include LTE and WiMax, although technically neither of them are actually 4G by the measure of the 4G standards body, the International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector.

iFixit also verified that Samsung uses magnesium instead of aluminium
in the phone's frame, by the trusted scientific method of setting it on
fire. See kids -- science is fun! Magnesium is even lighter than aluminium while still maintaining strength.
