This week ZTE is showcaseing its ZTE Eco-Mobius modular smartphone concept at CES 2014 allowing us to see what the company has been creating in their research and development lab.
The ZTE Eco-Mobius modular smartphone concept is currently only a prototype and is not a fully functional smartphone, however it does provide an insight into the direction that smartphones might take over the few years.
The modular smartphone concept enables users to replace the camera, battery, display, and other “core” modules which include the smartphones processor, RAM, internal storage for media and applications and its graphics processor.
The modules then snap together inside a clear outer casing making it easy for users to upgrade sections and components within their smartphone rather than having to upgrade to a new device.
The modular smartphone concept design would also enable users to tailor their smartphone to their exact requirements. For instance if you require more storage and a higher powered processor, but don’t require a high-resolution camera this could all be accommodated.
The Eco-Mobius moduar smartphone concept was announced last year by ZTE, but the company has been cleared to state that they have no intention to develop the phone further and push it through to manufacture at the current time, which is unfortunate.
ZTE also showcased their new smartphone linked smartwatch at CES 2014 this week.
