Shift5+ Modular Mobile phone

Posted in Android Application, Mobile/Tablet, and windows app

Small German phone manufacturer Shift has announced that it has quite the interesting offering coming next year in the Shift5+. The smartphone will pack the buyer’s choice of either Windows 10 Mobile or Android 5.1, and will come with modular parts inside.

Shift brand will be opening pre-order this December. By then, specs are expected to be finalized but so far, we heard the smartphone will boast of the following: a 5-inch IPS display, 32GB built-in memory, 2GB RAM, Snapdragon quad processor or oct-core CPU, 5MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera, and a 2,500-3,000mAh removable battery. Someday, you may change the battery, internal memory, or the display of the phone.

What makes the Shift5 + interesting, however, is that users can replace more than just the battery. Shift says that, in case of damage, users will be able to easily swap out the display, internal memory, and “other important components.”

The phone is listed with a €399 price tag which is around $430 in the US. Pre-order will open next month but smartphone is set to arrive in Q3 2016. That seems a long time to wait though. Let’s hope Shift will consider bringing the phone earlier.
