CES 2014: ZTE gives CES its first look at the Eco-Mobius modular phone

1:11 /

The future of cell phones is made to order with the ZTE Eco-Mobius.

Hello, everybody. I'm Lynn La from CNET, and I'm here in Las Vegas at CES 2014. And right now, we're gonna check out some tech of the future from ZTE, and it's called the Eco-Mobius modular phone. Now, this is a concept device coming out of the company's R&D program in China. And it's basically a way to update your phone component by component. So, you can switch out your, say, 8-megapixel camera lens for a 13-megapixel camera lens and keep the same phone. Another example could be, say, you're going on a road trip and you know you got to play a lot of mobile games. You could switch out your GPU that you don't use every day for more high-end and more powerful GPU. Other examples could be switching out your RAM, your ROM, and even your mobile processor. Now, we've seen this idea from other companies, as well, like Phone Blok and Motorola's Ara project. It's good to see that ZTE is throwing in their-- as well. So, who knows? Maybe this kind of tech isn't that far from the future. Again, I'm Lynn, and you've been checking out ZTE's Eco-Mobius modular phone.
