The good folks over at iFixit have been ripping apart a Samsung Galaxy S9 and a Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, revealing a few hidden secrets about the brand new flagship phones.

That includes front and back replacements, including cracked and broken screens. Most repairs will be done within two hours or less, Samsung says.

According to Samsung, "walk-ins are always welcome" and uBreakiFix will offer "same-day repairs" for most issues. Samsung says that these uBreakiFix centers will be able to offer same-day fix service in most cases.
