The vivo NEX Dual Display is a smartphone that carriers the best implementation of the dual displays on the market. Though the smartphone looks marvelous, it’s difficult to repair. The process of disassembly on the NEX Dual Display is tricky, and here’s a quick overview.
The disassembly is tricky, but you don’t need special tools to tear down the handset. A regular set of Philips and Torx screwdrivers will be sufficient along with a spudger. The screen sticks tightly with the help of glue, so you need a heat gun to get yourself into the internals of the smartphone.
The back panel of the smartphone is a rather tricky task. The secondary display sticks tightly with the frame, and it holds the motherboard with ribbon cables. The motherboard itself is pretty busy as it attaches a screen along with camera modules. Also, it hooks the antennas and other miscellaneous components.
The camera arrangement on the vivo NEX Dual Display is interesting. The handset bears a 2MP camera on the left-hand side with f/1.8 aperture. Well, this is a depth camera with a large 2.9µm pixels. The primary camera on the handset rests in the middle and it is a 12MP main shooter (f/1.8, 1.4µm), while on the right is the 3D ToF camera.
One cannot remove the screen without disassembling the camera modules from the smartphone. The screen requires a heat gun to separate the display panels.
All this shows that the vivo NEX Dual Display is a rather complicated smartphone to dismantle and assemble. What do you think? Do let us know in the comments section below.
