Android-powered phones are almost everywhere. Deciding on which one to buy and replace your current unit can be quite a challenge because you have to consider a number of things like the budget, brand, color, build, special features, version of mobile OS, and more. But for some people, they want something that can offer more than what is presented at launch. This Shift5+ from German phone manufacturer is a smartphone that boasts of modular parts that you can upgrade in the feature.
Modular phones are still under development but the Shift5+ is already a working modular phone. Well, just the parts inside can be changed and updated. What's better is that the new Shift smartphone can run on either Android 5.1 Lollipop or Windows 10 mobile.
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.
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.
