  • now you are able to put the mainboard (the one and only), display and buttons (it appears that this is one huge part) and the black back/mid frame from each other

  • its easy to remove the speaker/antenna and some plastic parts from the back panel

  • the camera is glued on the board, but connected with an usual camera connector.

  • all EMI shields are brazed onto the bord.
