Can anyone tell me how to release this type of cable connector

I'm replacing the battery on my Samsung Ativ Book 9 Lite (I've posted this under Plus because Lite didn't appear as an action).

I need to disconnect the cable connector - would be very grateful if someone could let me know how to do it. There's a photo of the connector here:

It's very small - just over 1cm wide - and there doesn't appear to be a flap to lift as there is with frictionless connectors.

Look forward to hearing from anyone who can help with this. I've searched Youtube videos and websites but can't find any with advice on t his type of connector. I obviously don't want to force it and break it.

Is this a good question?

You have to pull it upwards away from the motherboard. I can not see if there seams to be any hocks to bend to the side. If there is then push them to the side and afterwards just lift the connector.

Many thanks Claes! There are two very small pins on each side - you can see them in the photo - which look as though they out to be locks but I can't move them in any direction. I'll take another look. Thanks again.

Usually if pins are supossed to be moved they should move abit if you push them. If the do not move then I would say it is just to lift the connector. It looks rather the same as on my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1

Look at this guide to see how it is removed.

Thanks again. It's also a Samsung battery - from a Samsung Ativ Lite 9 laptop. There's a picture of the plug that fits into it here https://goo.gl/photos/2XaZazhewjt6ULKv8 I'll take a look at your link now.

Thanks for the photo, yeah looks like mine the you have to lift it up. The connector can stick a bit.

I've tried to lift i t and it's not separating - I don't want to pull it too hard. Would be grateful if you could take a look at this short video, as you can see when I lift it the board is lifting too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAiX6lr_...
