Samsung Galaxy S8 is a pricey flagship phone for a reason: it packs several premium hardware under its hood. But what if we can expose these expensive parts for everyone to see?

A YouTuber named JerryRigEverything is popular for “rigging” gadgets and dismantling them to show the internal parts. For his latest video, instead of simply disassembling a device, he did something different: he created a clear back panel for the Samsung Galaxy S8.

The DIY video shows how to make a clear back panel for the Samsung Galaxy S8. Just a warning though: doing so will void the warranty, so caveat emptor!

Removing The Back Glass

The process is very simple but takes patience and careful execution. Samsung Galaxy S8 is a sturdy, well-built device so it cannot be dismantled that easily. So the user must use the necessary tools for this task. In the video, Jerry used a cutter, plastic wedge, and screwdriver. For the removal of the paint in the back panel, he used paint and epoxy remover and a piece of rag.

First, he removed the back glass panel of the phone. He heated the back side with a blow dryer to loosen the adhesive, then used a cutter to slice through the adhesive to remove the panel. (For an in-depth tutorial on Galaxy S8 teardown, watch his other video.)

The next step is to remove the camera frame and the fingerprint scanner stuck on the back panel. Using a cutter, he carefully removed the parts from the glass.

Clearing The Paint And Putting The Panel Back

The back glass is painted on the inside. As Jerry demonstrated, the paint cannot be removed by merely scratching it as it is stuck firmly on the glass. To do this, he used paint remover which can be bought from any local hardware store.

He sprayed the paint remover onto the painted side of the glass. The remover worked like acid that loosened and dissolved the paint. After a few minutes, he scraped off the paint carefully so he wouldn’t scratch the glass.

Afterwards, he removed the cloudy laminate on the glass (the paint sticks to the laminate). He peeled it off and then washed the glass to rinse the chemicals. The result: a solid, clear back glass. He cleaned it with a glass cleaner and left it to dry.

Next, he removed the back plate protecting the screws. To expose more of the parts, he completely removed the wireless charging port. Then he also cut half of the twin loudspeaker.

Finally, he put back the camera frame and fingerprint scanner using a double-sided adhesive tape. He reattached the fingerprint scanner pins using a plastic wedge. He also put tape along the side of the case before snapping the panel back in place.

Voila, a Samsung Galaxy S8 with a transparent back panel to boast its topnotch hardware!

As Samsung scrambles to regain from the continuing Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, the business could be looking forward to its next main smartphone, the Galaxy S8, restore trust in the products of Samsung and to win back customers.

With both of these elements, Samsung appears like it’d be tapping as the secret weapon of the forthcoming smartphone into virtual reality.

This becomes more significant as headsets and more systems, including Sony’s PlayStation VR, are set to be released, pushing on virtual reality farther into the mainstream.

Samsung has been pushing for innovations and cutting edge technology in its main smartphones, like the curved screen that’s been reported will be coming to the next Apple iPhone.

In what’s thought of as a silver lining in the Galaxy Note 7 recall plan, which was originated by Samsung due to the episodes of exploding batteries, the business could be looking at an earlier launching for the Galaxy S8 to handle the disaster.

Rather than attempting to regain the lost revenue of the Galaxy Note 7, analysts say that Samsung should focus on getting out the Galaxy S8 into the marketplace when possible in order to cancel the negative impact of the recall plan that is international.

If Samsung is planning to do thus, such a gigantic move on its part for the business’s next main smartphone would be an essential, although that remains to be seen.
