Google's Project Ara is shaping up to be a really cool look at the future of Android. These modular phones have components, like cameras and processors, that you can swap out to customize your device.
Smartphone maker Yezz is the first company outside of Google to build a Project Ara phone. Let's take a look at it.
You get to pick which kind of processor, storage and battery the phone has by picking from the available components.
Everything is held together with the phone's aluminum case.
All of the components of the phone are interchangeable. Here, we see a screen that you can slide onto the front of the module.
A big selling point of the Project Ara phones is that you can decide which components go where. The camera doesn't need to be at the top, nor does the headphone jack need to be at the bottom.
You can carry around more components than will fit in the phone so that you can swap in when you need them. That means you could add an extra battery in place of the camera when you need more juice.
All the familiar features are available with the Yezz Project Ara phone, like a headphone jack.
Each of the slide-in pieces can also be customized with different colors or designs that you pick, like a favorite photo.
The modular design easily allows for accessories, like this game pad. You can swap out another piece of the phone when you want to use it.
With all of the pieces attached, the phone isn't too much bigger than any other smartphone on the market.
This is Google's Project Ara prototype.
Check out what Google's Project Ara phone looks like all put together.
The Yezz phone won't look too different when it goes to market.
