New York City, New York – (StockNewsDesk) – 12/25/2014 — Project Ara is the latest initiative taken by Google to develop an exciting platform for modular smartphones. This platform comes with a different structural frame that can also be called endoskeleton. It is dedicated to hold the smartphone modules according to the choice of the owners. It will include the display, extra battery and camera. It allows the user to replace or swap the module according to their preference. It also helps you to upgrade the individual modules when innovation emerges. The Project Ara is being developed to give a longer life cycle to the handset. It has the potential to reduce electronic waste.
If you are interested in technology, it is tough to keep Google out of the picture. Google has done it yet again and finds themselves in the news. According to Google, the Project Ara is a specific design that can be used by at least 6 billion people all over the world. This vast user range of 6 billion people will include 5 billion of feature phone users and 1 billion of smartphone users. Google is all set to sell the starter kit at $50. The starter kit will include display, frame, low-end CPU, battery and Wi-Fi.
Currently Google is working hard to dissolve the entry barrier for Project Ara. The intention behind this is very clear. Google wants to make it available for the lower level developers so it reaches more people at an affordable cost as there are currently a handful of bigger manufacturers who can only deal with this platform. The easier feature will even allow the user to upgrade their smartphone hardware. It is the first of its kind and it will be more powerful than you can imagine. The Ara smartphone will be available in the market next year.
The Ara smartphone project has two different processors currently in use for the project. One of the processors is the powerful NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip. This chip is popular as it is being used in the Google Nexus 9 tablet. Another processor would be a 64 bit chip from Marvell. The project might have a third one, as well. More details related to this project will soon be available during the conference of Project Ara developers. The conference will be hosted next year, January 2015.
