How To Open The Back Cover Of Your Realme C12

Before You Begin

Before we dive into the disassembly process, it’s crucial to gather the necessary tools and precautions:


Safety first: Always power off your Realme C12 completely before attempting to open it. This eliminates the risk of electrical shorts or data loss during the process.

  • Tool Time: You’ll need a set of precision screwdrivers, including a Pentalobe screwdriver for the specific screws on your Realme C12. A pry tool, like a spudger, will also be helpful for gently separating components.
  • Prepare the Workspace: Find a clean, well-lit workspace to minimize the risk of losing small parts or damaging your phone. An anti-static mat is ideal to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) that could harm delicate components.
  • Visual Aid: Having a reference video or image guide on hand can be incredibly helpful, especially if you’re unfamiliar with phone disassembly. Search online for “Realme C12 disassembly” or “How to open Realme C12” to find visual references.

    Now that you’re prepared, let’s begin the disassembly process:

    1. Locate the Screws: Identify the back cover screws on your Realme C12. They’re typically located around the edges or bottom of the phone. Depending on your model, these might be Pentalobe screws.
    2. Unscrew Carefully: Use the appropriate precision screwdriver to remove the back cover screws. Place them in a designated container to avoid losing them during reassembly.
    3. Heating Up (Optional): Some phone models utilize adhesive to secure the back cover. In such cases, applying a little heat with a hairdryer (on low heat setting) can help soften the adhesive and make the prying process easier. Be mindful not to overheat the phone, as this can damage internal components.

    Prying and Separation

    Once the screws are removed, it’s time to carefully separate the back cover from the phone frame:

    1. Insert the Prying Tool: Carefully insert a pry tool, like a spudger, along the seam between the back cover and the frame. It’s best to start at a corner to create a small opening.
    2. Slide and Pry with Caution: Once you have a slight gap, gently slide the prying tool around the perimeter of the phone, slowly separating the back cover from the frame. Be mindful of any flex cables connecting the back cover to the motherboard. Avoid applying excessive force, as this can crack the back cover or damage the internal components.
    3. Disconnect Flex Cables (if applicable): Depending on your Realme C12 model, there might be flex cables connecting the back cover components (fingerprint sensor, camera buttons) to the motherboard. Locate the connectors and carefully detach them using a plastic spudger. Remember the placement of these connectors for reassembly later.
