The Mate 10 Pro's valuables are well protected, and covered with a large metal shield.

Proceeding with our teardown, we remove one of the many liquid indicators and all the Phillips screws we can find, as well as a small metal shield covering the flex connection for the fingerprint sensor.

The screws seem to be some kind of aluminum alloy—they don't attract much to any of our driver bits, nor to the magnetic mat.

With everything duly unscrewed, we gleefully rub our hands in anticipation of what we'll find. Next to come out: the large shield holding the dual-LED flash, which protects all flex connections and contacts on the motherboard.
