What do you mean by being able to inspect exactly?
According to the Dev Diaries you can now see the resources on a planet before colonizing.
Inspect, view, evaluate. See the planet, tiles and resources before the Colonizing Event screen. But that sound like a yes. Good, that was one annoying 'feature.'
(If you don't know what I mean by the Colonizing Event, it is that screen that comes up when you colonize a planet allowing you to choose one of three options that affect the planet or your empire. The title of that screen says "Colonizing Event.")
