Google Project Ara is coming this fall
Google Ara was a modular phone project but unlike LG G5, you could change many ( also important ) parts of the phone. After many delays, Google finally announced that they will start to send Project Ara this fall.
However, this only concerns developers so if you are a consumer and want to use Project Ara, then still waiting is your only option.
Anyway, let’s talk about specs. As it is completely modular, we cannot give every spec of the phone. However, you are not able to swap out the significant parts such as the screen, battery or System On Board chipset, at least not in the first Ara.
The real question was how to swap out the parts. The latest trailer and announcement answer that question. Every module ( 6 of them on the back ) is connected to the body via the same connector which enables software to control the modules. That means there will be buttons to swap out the parts within the software, and when you press “eject speaker”, the speaker module will be ejected. However, you can also eject manually.
Right now, Google is working with eight companies including Panasonic, TDK, iHealth, E Ink, Toshiba, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, and Samsung, but more companies will start to make Project Ara modules soon.
