Modular Smartphones

Fonkraft – First Modular Smartphone with 4100 mAh battery (Project Canceled)



Fonkraft Modular Phone

Modular smartphones are in the talk since quite some time, and after there was an official briefing about what is to come in Project Ara, even with the modules showcased for people to know how it works, we are seeing someone else making the first modular smartphone. Dubbed as “Fonkraft”, this should be World’s first crowdsourced modular smartphone.

Update: The project is canceled by Indiegogo, stating that it didn’t meet their “Trust & Safety Standards”. The page is also removed from the website, and those who funded, are getting the refunds. Disappointing news, for those including us, who felt that this could make a real good impact and inspire others, as well as Project Ara to quicken up.

It works exactly the same way Project Ara was intended to work, and this phone looks cool with the modules, though, this isn’t something in the retail market. We are looking at a Indiegogo project, where it all depends on the funding the idea gets.

The components like CPU, battery, camera and screen can all be fixed on a central structure, and easily replaced when there is a need to upgrade or change due to any other reason. There are a few options, based on the specs and inclusions. Although, each of them will have the same 5-inch screen on the front, and they’ll be running Android OS.

Fonkraft Pilot: $99

This has a Dual-core 1.3 GHz CPU, Dual-core GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB storage, along with an 8MP camera, while it comes with a 3100 mAh + 1000 mAh combination. Here, the 5-inch screen has an HD display.

Fonkraft Resolution: $199

Fonkraft Resolution

This comes with a 20MP camera module, and by the looks of it, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, quad-core GPU, 2GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. A 2800 mAh battery module is included as well. Here, the 5-inch screen has a Full HD display.

Fonkrat Hifi: $199

Fonkraft Hifi

A 192kHz HiFi module made out of wood will be an inclusion here, but the camera will be reduced to an 8MP shooter, while the other internals seem to be same as packed in Fonkraft Resolution, except the 2100 mAh battery. Here, the 5-inch screen has a Full HD display.

Fonkraft Elements – $299

Fonkraft Elements

This is the combination of all the modules that come in the package, and the user can define and use the modules. In short, the Fonkraft Elements can be made into Pilot, Resolution or HiFi anytime. That’s how cool the modular smartphone concept is. The Elements package is priced at $299.

Check out the Indiegogo page to know more. They seem to be shipping this in September, if the project is successfully funded. Looking at how there is no competition, huge demand to at least try and see how the modular smartphones work, we might see this being fully funded.
