The introduction of this type of architecture will bring many advantages.
First the ability to customize the modular smartphone when you buy it. You can insert the modular functionality that you desire or that you can afford it.
For example, a photographer might choose an advanced camera module, accompanied by more battery modules and an energy-efficient processor, to have a long battery life. A passionate about video games, instead, could place a powerful processor module, stereo speakers, a high resolution screen, and so on …
All of this, only at the stage of purchase, but the benefits of the modular architecture are also evident with the passage of time, as the smartphone becomes obsolete.
Without changing the entire smartphone, it will be possible to replace individual modules, with significant cost savings. It’s possible to replace the screen with a better one, buy a module with a more powerful processor, or buy modules with new functionality, such as a battery module with an integrated solar panel.
The advantages of modular architecture are evident in everyday life. You can configure your smartphone based on daily activities. For example, including more battery modules, if you plan to stay out for a long time. In addition if you encounter any fault, will be possible to replace single damaged module and not the entire phone.
An additional benefit is the “social” aspect. When this type of technology will be widely used, it’s possible to interchange the modules with your friends or relatives. All data will be integrated into a single module, so you can change the entire smartphone, transferring the data module from one phone to another.
