the market are practically the same. To be honest, apart from the ridiculously huge specifications OEMs
keep putting on flagships each year, nothing exciting
has been happening in the mobile market. It is beginning to get boring but Google may be bringing a new game changer,
that with the release of the first Project Ara phone

Google’s modular phone may be a game changer as it
looks like nothing we’ve seen before. This is a
customizable device that lets you arrange the
modules the way you like. You can as well choose the
modules you want and as time goes on, modules
performing specific functions will be developed.
Modules such as cameras, sensors, speakers can be
arranged by users.

Google has already partnered with Panasonic,
Toshiba, Micron and Sony. According to Blaise
Bertrand, Project Ara’s head of creative, the device
will be light, thin and beautiful. He further said here
modules can solve specific users need and cited the
example of a diabetic patient that needs a glucometer.
iHealth’s version of a glucometer can be attached to
the phone. He said:
“ Everything in a glucometer, besides
a few sensors, is in a phone.
The developer version of Project Ara will be
available in the fourth quarter of the year but the
device won’t be commercially available till next year.
Pricing hasn’t been revealed yet.
Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
