The concept of a dream smartphone or in other words modular smartphones is advancing day by day. even though Motorola has been sold to Lenovo, the project Ara tea is working at full speed. Below is the video demonstrating the work on Project Ara.
The prototype uses electromagnets that hold the modular parts intact. These magnets do not need a constant flow of electricity, in fact these are permanent magnets. The video also shows "Ara Configurator App" using which buyers can theme their device according to their liking. With the help of this app, users can preview the model of the phone with different hardware pieces and exterior designs.
There is no release date mentioned of the release of first modular smartphone but it looks like we will be seeing one very soon.
