Where can I find these blue capacitors on the U17_RF?

While trying to replace the screen I pried off a blue (what I assume is) capacitor on the U17_RF. I have no idea what this is and where I can find this. The blue capacitors look like all the other blue ones located nearby it.

Does anyone know what these chips are? Any help please? Thank you!

yingwang01 , as you already know that the part itself is U17_rf and it is used in the antenna line as a duplexer for GPS antenna and cellular diversity (top antenna). The blue caps are part of that assembly, SASLE1G58AA0F57, and do not show separately. Since it is a duplexer, those should be filter caps. I would try to bridge the gap where the cap used to be.

Wow Oldturkey! They should give you an award for all the input you contribute! :)

So if i bridge the gap it wont damage or screw up the phone operation in any way?


Looks like those are filter caps, so you should be okay with just bridging that particular component ;-)
