Galaxy S9 looks incredible with a see-through back

Avid tinkerer JerryRigEverything has taken to his YouTube channel to share a modification for the Galaxy S9 that’s bound to turn a few heads – but it’s not something you’re going to want to try at home. 

Remember when someone stipped the paint from the back of the Galaxy S8 to showcase the handset’s internals? Well, that was renowned YouTuber JerryRigEverything – and now he’s done the same with the all-new Galaxy S9.

In a six-minute video uploaded to YouTube on March 11, Jerry documents how he dismantled the device – which, as we know from a teardown shared on March 12, is no mean feat – and removed the paint from the sheet of glass on the rear.

The end result looks fantastic, but let’s not forget that iFixit awarded the Galaxy S9 a repairability score of four out of ten, meaning dismantling and reassembling the unit is nowhere near as straightforward as it’s made to look in the video.

For that reason, and that reason alone, we wouldn’t recommend attempting to replicate the process at home – or you could risk turning your brand new Galaxy S9 into a £739 paperweight, and we’re sure you don’t want that.
