Just a coupe of days ago, news cracked out pertaining to the Google's decision to schedule Developers Conference in April regarding the Project Ara. Now a fresh news has come up to our notice. It looks like the open-source modular smartphone hardware platform, might see the first commercial smartphone from the project in Q1 of 2015.
More interesting is the fact that Time Tech's report suggest that Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group is just a few weeks away from a functioning prototype and is aiming for early 2015 release of the first commercial version. But there is no official confirmation about the device so far.
And the publication also writes that the Project Ara will be comprising of the three devices which will include mini (basic), medium (mainstream) and jumbo (phablet-style).
The main frame or the skeleton of these devices which will house the other modular components, is said to be built by Google while the other components are likely to be manufactured by the third party manufacturers.
For those who don't have a clue about the modular phone, it is very much like the Phonebloks concept where you can assemble a smartphone according to your requirements very much like the way you can assemble your PC's CPU.
The upcoming product of Project Ara is also reportedly said to come with a features like a hot-swappable modules. Which means that if you are in a need of more battery backup as the battery in the phone is already dying, you can simply replace the camera module with a secondary battery and get the necessary power. Now how cool does that sound.
