Will this screen model fit the new metal case?

Hi Xavier,
Just wanted to check if this model would fit the new metal enclosure or not?

No, the metal case requires the OLED screen (newhaven which is thiner).
The previous LCD one does not fit.

Very easily... but you'll need to cut and solder this header to your display:

Then it can be inserted instead of the other LCD display.
