Day 121 — Modular phone
Upgrade your phone like a PC.
Imagine a day where we can upgrade the same phone with better cameras when travelling, longer battery life on daily basis, stereo speakers while watching and playing. Imagine selling specific parts online. Imaging saving money and being more efficient.
This is the goal of modular phones. Back in 2012 Google’s Project Ara had investigated and 4 years later it is not yet ready for market release.
Yesterday, LG G5 was released with the same concept as Ara. It’s not as modular but heading in this direction is paving the way for modular phones in the future.
