Use the ejection tool (aka Needle) or Paperclip. Push the tip all the way into the hole until the tray ejects, and then pull the tray of SIM and Memory card (Micro SD) out.
⚠️ Pay attention! The tool must be inserted into a hole on the edge of the phone's housing. Do not press too hard. It may break the tray eject mechanism.
Step 3. Open the back cover
Using a spudger or a plastic pick, carefully, around the edge, detach the back cover clips, and remove it.
Do not insert the tool deeply or bend it. Otherwise, the housing may be tampered with or damaged.
⚠️ Be careful when opening the cover from the volume and power buttons side. Thin cable and fragile buttons are straightforward to damage.
⚠️ Pay attention to the fingerprint sensor cable.

⚠️ Before! It is not necessary to remove the fingerprint sensor. You can choose another option to do:
1 - unscrew upper screws; Step 5
2 - remove the cover securing the motherboard; Step 6
3 - disconnect the fingerprint sensor connector; Step 8
4 - remove the back cover with the fingerprint sensor.

Disconnect the battery connector as soon as possible.
ℹ️️ The Xiaomi Poco M3 M2010J19CG model has a battery BN62 with 6000 mAh capacity (aka rechargeable battery).

Step 12. Remove the daughterboard
Remove the sub-board. It is glued to the frame with metalized tape, so to facilitate the process, the board can be heated a bit.
ℹ️️ The board contains a charging port (Micro USB), microphone, spring contacts for the speaker, vibration motor, and an antenna unit.
⚠️ It is not necessary to insert the tool under the board when removing the sub-board. Internal components could be damaged.
Step 13. Remove the cameras
Pry up the connectors. After that, remove two rear cameras and one front (selfie) camera.
Step 14. Disconnect the connectors
