The Blackberry Priv screen is reportedly very easy to remove and replace. Since its launch, teardown videos have already surfaced online.

It must be noted that although it does not take a genius to remove the Priv's screen display, its internals are very tricky to take apart, as Tech Times points out. The Priv's teardown video revealed that its entire screen feature can be removed in just a matter of five minutes.

First, the glue that held the sides of the smartphone's screen together was heated. Afterwards, a card was used to lift and remove the display. As seen in the video - which has now become trending - there is no need to remove the unit's other parts, such as its motherboard, battery unit or back cover.

It was the experts at Karalux Vietnam who managed to meticulously tear down the Priv and find out what is making the Canadian tech giant's new smartphone tick. As it would turn out, it takes a lot more effort to take apart the Priv, as compared to what is usually necessary when taking apart other smartphone models. The Blackberry Passport was reportedly relatively easy to disassemble, after all.

The Blackberry Priv - which has been marketed to be the company's make or break device for its smartphone business - boasts of a 5.4-inch screen display with a 1,440 x 2,560 pixels resolution with a 541 ppi. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 808 chipset, an Octa-Core 1.6 GHz CPU, and an Adreno 418 GPU. It is also expected to have 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and a 2 TB-capacity Micro SD card slot. This particular feature could come in very handy for consumers who are looking for a device that readily has lots of storage space.
