How to determine exact USB connector model?

I want to try replacing a broken USB connector/port on a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime (SM-G361F). Yes I know, it requires microsoldering and rework station and skill and luck. I still want to give it a shot :)

Ordering a replacement USB port from farnell.com, how can I know which model exactly do I need? Is there a better way, than just visually comparing and "guessing"?Where can I get this information in general? How to read USB connector/port model names?

(link to Farnell.com shop with "USB micro B" search query)

Did some hunting and found this part number in an ebay listing: p/n 3722-003700. I've cross-referenced it with other listings and it appears legit.

Good luck with the project!

Thanks for the help! Searching for that part on ebay gave me geniue usb-charger ports for replacements- so I ordered one from there.

I still couldn't find the right part on farnell store though (shipping from farnell is faster for my country). I guess that part number is shop-specific? Ebay has other p/n than Farnell right?

None of the ebay offers includes any other model name or signature than "geniue samsung usb charger port replacement...".

Anyway, I ordered from Ebay which solves my problem- thank you again :)
