This new model was displayed at ZTE’s stall at CES, and showed off smartphone module with replaceable camera, processor, and battery, which can be upgraded to better hardware. The interesting part was that it will be able to work with seperate hardware component for processor, RAM and internal storage, as well as the graphics processor.
This is not a new concept as earlier Dave Hakkens had also shown off the Phonebloks, and Motorola too unveiled a similar concept of a modular smartphone and named it as the Project Ara.
And now with this ZTE’s modular phone project in tow, we are hoping to soon see commercial units of customizable smartphone, which would never run out of trend.
