The phone I just tried to fix had two digitizer connectors just like the one in this procedure, but all the replacement parts I can find on ebay and aliexpress etc. which claim to be for XT1601 - XT1609 have just a single connector. Any thoughts about why that would be?

The smaller one is from the power and Volume buttons and needs tobe transfered to the new display if you bought one with Frame (which makes it much easier)

Marko Käppler - Contestar

I had to figure out that out myself. Yes, you will need to transfer the connector from the old frame to the new frame. I should also add, the frame I got had no buttons, so I had to get them from the old phone.
