Project Ara Modular Phone Features Hit the Net

    Despite the fact that work on the modular Project Ara phone has been ongoing for a long time , there is still little known about this project. Yes, we know that there is a basic platform to which module elements such as a display, a camera and other components are attached. But what are the real features of the gadget?

    Little was known about this until now. Someone was able to verify the characteristics of Project Ara using a benchmark, and posted the results on the Web. Of course, it is likely that all this is fake, but let's try to believe this information. So what do we have inside?

    Yes, the fact that some device was testedusing GFXBench long before the appearance of the device on the market can be surprising. But GFXBench’s base previously included devices that never entered the market.

    In general, there is nothing particularly strange in the current results, the device’s capabilities are not fantastic. It is worth remembering that these are the characteristics of a system with a specific set of modules. If they, modules, are replaced, the characteristics will be different. Therefore, the device is called modular.

    Here we see a display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and Android 6.0 as the OS. But there is some oddity. For example, the diagonal of the display here is ... 13.8 inches, and the memory is 10 and (not or, mind you) 25 GB. Two different modules? It looks like someone was testing an experimental board.

    There are all the usual elements - sensors, wireless equipment, front and rear cameras, accelerometer, gyroscope, light sensor, pedometer, barometer, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, SIM card.

    Only registered users can participate in the survey. Please come in.
