Huawei P40 lite disassembled on video, proves easy to take apart

Peter, 13 April 2020

The Huawei P40 lite stars in the following disassembly video, which gives us a glimpse at what’s going on inside the phone. It starts with removing the plastic back cover and unscrewing 18 Phillips screws.

Honor used thermal paste to transfer heat from the motherboard to the metal frame of the phone, which should help the Kirin 810 chipset stay cool. Thermal paste is used on some of the other chips to connect them to their metal shields, which also helps heat dissipation.

Interestingly, there are rubber gaskets around the USB-C port and the 3.5mm headphone jack, even though the Huawei P40 lite isn’t officially water resistant.

As the video shows, disassembly is pretty easy, though if you have to replace the screen, you will have to take the whole phone apart – the ribbon cable for the screen is under the battery, which is under the motherboard, which is itself buried under a couple of layers.
