iFixIt is back at it with another one of their smartphone maulings known as “teardowns.” The Nexus 5Xis the hottest new thing on the block so we aren’t surprised they got their hands on it to take it to town.
And for those who will eventually crack into this thing for one reason or another, it may even be possible to enhance its functionality. One blogger at PhoneRepair has cracked their Nexus 5X open and started testing a Qi wireless charging receiver inside the device.
He says it works and charges more slowly than normal, but wasn’t sure if this was due to the pad he was using. Fully functional or not, hacking a wireless charging receiver into the Nexus 5X is super cool and would probably be pretty convenient regardless, as the latest Nexus phones opted not to include the feature as standard. Be sure to check the process out in the video above.
