Ubook X 2023 SSD upgrade (Picture motherboard)

The new Ubook X 2023 comes with a chinese brand “AirDisk” m.2. 2242 SSD size instead 2280.

For open the tablet to replace the SSD or batteries you have first to remove any microSD card inserted in the slot as well as any USB device/cable connected to the ports, then:

  1. Remove the two small screws in the bottom at rear side (beside of POGO pins)
  2. Using a plastic nail tool or a credit card, insert it between the plastic frame and the black bezzel of the screen starting at left-upper corner (close to the power ON/OFF switch) twisting slightly and moving all around the tablet while hearing the “clicks”. Once completed the rear frame can be separated. There are not cables/strips connecting both parts
  3. Disconnect the battery cable
  4. Remove the original SSD and replace with the new one

See picture attached

I hope this helps :wink:


Thanks for the great guide. One question. Was the thermal pad preapplied on the heatsink, or did you ad it? Shame that it isn’t applied on more places, so the heat would be dissipated more evenly thru the backplate :thinking: That would for certain help the battery to avoid heat damage, and thermal throttling of the CPU.

That one was pre applied, you should replace it after a while with something like Arctic. Maybe even on ssd, especially if you upgrade it

Thank you for this i will PIN it so everybody would be able to see the inside , in case of doubts.

Is the ram soldered in?

Yes, it is. You have to decide if take de 8GB or 12GB RAM options since can´t be upgraded unless you have enogh SMD desoldering/soldering skill to replace it.
