Question about a full display I am buying

Hello guys, I am buying a new display for my iPhone 5s but I have a question: look at the picture attached, what is that thing, in the red circle, for? I had never seen that before, not in the one iFixit sells; the one I am buying is not from iFixit.

They are testing points used in factory. They are supposed be cut off.

@benjamen50 so... what do I do if I get that testing points? Thanks!


@Carlos Cut as shown here:


@benjamen50 do I have to cut it? or I can leave it there?


Better if you cut it. I think leaving it there may cause issues.


if it were me, I'd throw a piece of black tape over it. But I have never seen that before....

Or if I did, I didn't notice it.
