Nokia 8 teardown reveals a bigger heat pipe and complex repairability process

Nokia 8, the first flagship smartphone from HMD Global has already been through JerryRigEverything's burn and bend test. Now the smartphone has received a detailed teardown revealing its advanced heat sink copper pipe and decent repairability of the device. The new teardown video details how to replace the screen and battery of the device, in case you need to at any point in time.

The video shows that the Nokia 8 features a sturdy build thanks to the aluminium unibody casing and it is not the easiest smartphone to repair. The screen is glued down to the assembly and most of the components under the hood are held with the help of screws and one standoff screw. There are 30 screws of different sizes in total and it is advisable to keep them properly.

The interesting part is the copper heat pipe, which Zack claims is pretty big and does go over the chipset. He notes that the chipset is covered with thermal paste and transfer heat to the aluminium body of the device. The heat is then transferred through the aluminium to the copper pipe. The configuration seems weird but the heat dissipation has been found to be effective enough to make sure the smartphone never got hot to touch.

To recall, the Nokia 8 is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The smartphone features a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, dual 13MP rear cameras, a 13MP front camera and 3090mAh battery. The smartphone is not the easiest to repair when compared to Nokia 6 but it has been found to offer an effective heat pipe and good build quality.
