With the motherboard on ice, we're finally able to tweeze out the dual camera module.
Either Essential accidentally put these camera pop connectors on backwards, or someone had too much fun figuring how to origami them into place.
Nearby, the selfie cam lies on a strip of glue and takes a little more work to extract, bringing the front-facing sensor cable along for the ride.
Surprise! The front-facing camera and earpiece speaker come as a single part. That tiny port lines up directly with the über-slim grille at the top of the phone!
The small flex cable terminates with possibly an AMS TMD3700 color sensor.
