Engadget has called in famous developer François Simond (better know as Supercurio) to list as many inner components of the Galaxy Nexus as possible. The inner components are far from shocking, but still they can take care of your ever more nerdy needs. A 720p HD display doesn’t control itself after all, does it?

This is the list of things Engadget and Supercurio discovered inside the Galaxy Nexus:
