Everyone already knew that Facebook’s latest generation privacy device can’t actually hold the camera or read your personal data, but now a teardown has shed some more light on just how small the Soli is when stacked.

The Sun’s Apex team over at Digital Trends confirmed that the dual layer processor found on the Soli is just a millionth of a millimeter square – roughly one-fourth of the width of a human hair.

That’s smaller than a thousandth of a centimeter, which means that even at its largest size, the Soli wouldn’t be able to manage a full-screen phone’s resolution.

And one bit of good news for users? At that size, the Soli contains a decent enough amount of storage. One BTC was found in the Suled firmware. Even for phone use, that’s a big advance from the older Defenders or HomeGuard devices that required physical ports.

It’s also worth noting that the Soli is not using any extra energy compared to that of your average smartphone camera, as it’s quite efficient in terms of how much energy it consumes. According to the paper on the Teardown Blog, the device uses only 20-30 milliwatts per CPU core, less than your average flagship phone.

However, the current Suled camera is being tested in Aspen during the holidays. Unless it turns out to be significantly better than the camera found on the original Defenders, that leaves us with even smaller storage options as it doesn’t store the camera photo/video data in RAM. Maybe Facebook will develop a new version of the hardware after the holidays.
