Meet ARA – Modular Phone Project by Google
What if I tell you that you can assemble your phone? Yes! Google is working on a project called “ARA” and Yes! it runs on your favorite Os Android. ARA is a modular mobile phone contains all the functionality of a smartphone plus six flexible slots for easy swapping. Suppose you’re a photographer – so you could upgrade your camera module. Not just that if one module is broken or not working you could change it easily.
ARA frames allows you to slide any ARA modules into any slot and it works. There is an Application Layer called “Greybus protocol” which allows the ARA modules to communicate with each other and the processor. So Project ARA will give you more control over features as you can customize the modules according to your need.
Developer edition of ARA is coming soon..
