Is it possible to replace iphone 8 logic board with iphone 8 plus logic board?


iMore Question

I recently bought a second-hand iphone 8 64gb and with two months of regular usage its SIM signal stopped working properly. I can't make or receive calls and 4G doesn't work most of the time either.
I took it to a repair center and while reading the iphone's serial number through a MAC software they told me the logic board had been replaced with an iphone 8 plus logic board, because the serial was different. Is it really possible? What could have happened here?

My first counter-question would be are they different sizes? The next question would be if the hardware can be mixed and matched; my guess is no.
