The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is arguably one of the most beautiful smartphones in recent years. We can all probably agree on this, even though there always will be a group of nay-sayers going against the grain no matter what, out of force of habit, if nothing else. For the majority of smartphone enthusiasts, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a gorgeous piece of technology equipped with a foldable display.

Now, what lies beyond the beautiful exterior design will forever be hidden for most Galaxy Z Flip 3 owners, unless they’re brave enough to perform a disassembly. Thankfully, if you want to have a look inside the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G, you don’t have to tear it down yourself. The internet has got you covered, and the first Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G disassembly video is already live, courtesy of PBKreviews.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 did the honors yesterday, and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G made it on camera in a new disassembly video today. It shows the steps needed to disassemble the new clamshell foldable, and as you’d expect, the process requires a few special tools such as plastic pics and a heat gun.

The Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G uses adhesive for the backplates, the foldable display, and the camera lenses, the latter of which can be easily replaced in case they get scratched.

Inside, though, the internal components are packed closely together with almost no wiggle room. The two batteries are held in place with adhesives and lack prying tabs.

Interestingly enough, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G makes extensive use of graphite pads. It has a large graphite pad stuck to the lower backplate, and a couple more pads can be found on the opposite side, behind the foldable screen.

You can find a handful of other interesting details by checking the full video below, from the removable wireless charging coil and NFC pad to the selfie camera being glued in place, so don’t forget to hit that “play” button.
