It is quite difficult to separate the screen from the phone body. We utilize the hot air gun, a card, and a sucker to remove the screen.

Don’t directly remove the screen since the screen is connected to phone body via ribbon wire and the BTB port is covered by the shield. Therefore, disconnect the ribbon wire before removing the screen.

After removing the screen, the metal plate in the middle can be seen. The metal plate is used to strengthen the structure and fix the components below it. Nowadays, the smartphone like the Nokia 7 Plus with such design is rare to see. Lots of screws are found on the metal plate.

The Nokia 7 Plus has excellent workmanship. The phone remains the 3.5mm earphone port with independent design, and such design is rare to see. Most of the back of the motherboard is covered by the shield. For the part which fails to be fixed by the shield on the back of the motherboard, Nokia has used the screw to fix them. For example, the vice board is connected to the motherboard via FPC which is fixed by the screw.
