Yup, you read that right. Google has announced a Modular Phone system and it’s coming this fall for developers. But that begs the question, what is a modular phone? Here’s an example. Like taking photos but your phone’s camera is sub par? Get a new one! want more battery life and don’t really use your phone for pictures? get a bigger battery! That’s the concept behind this new cool device. You can even change out the screen on this guy.
The idea originally came out back in 2014 and has been in development since then. Google is open to new idea and is letting developers get their hands on it this fall to help create new add ons for the phone. If anyone is interested, click here. The possibilites for this phone are pretty big. On the page you can already see pretty creative modules that have been added to these phones and with this project open to the public, it will only get better with time.
