Some dainty halberd-spudgering grants us a look at the USB-C port assembly.

Points to Google for putting the USB-C port on its own board. This is a high-wear item, and soldering it directly to the motherboard would make for difficult (and costly) repairs.

Plus, in the absence of a headphone jack, we can expect double the stress on this port, as you'll be using it for media and charging.

This year's fingerprint sensor brings a much cleaner cable job, making this sensor removal a snap. (Get it? 'Cause fingers.)
