[* black] Fairphone decided to forgo the nifty [guide|52523|display lock mechanism|stepid=115063|new_window=true] in the previous iteration and went with standard Phillips #00 screws instead.
[* icon_note] A tiny screwdriver is provided, which is nice, though we admit we still prefer our larger handle from the [product|IF145-299-4|Mako Driver Kit|new_window=true] for a bit more comfort.
[* red] With the screws gone, we unsnap the display unit from the frame to find the same pogo pin connector with its breakout board below [guide|52523|as in the previous iteration|stepid=115063|new_window=true].
