Google is due to reveal the final working Project Ara phone. We already know about it and are waiting for it. The prototype has been in the production phase for nearly two years, and it still is not finished yet. Numbers of problems have come along the path of its completion.
Back in August 2015, we came across a prototype or some sort of experimental model. However, this model still has issues which were not acceptable at all. The module magnets even failed to pass the drop test. However, Google, being generous admitted that the design and the idea were flawed and needed lots of working before making to the public. We were modestly told to wait more and expect the suitable device to be in the public by 2016. We all are impatiently waiting to see Project Ara in reality.
Google recently said that a solution is in progress, and the tests are still being done. We are not so sure how the module magnets will work and how the phone will be attached correctly. What we are certain is that Google is soon coming our way with a couple of design patents or in future, prototypes. The patent part is right because, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), has recently granted some design patents for the Google. We do not know the subject and the purpose of the patents yet, but it has some relation to a “signature experience”.
No descriptions or explanations came our way. But, after a strenuous wait, we have some visual delights. However, we are not supposed to brag about it now because the images or other patented documents are not allowed to flow to the audiences. But the leaks and the other speculations have given us the right to assume.
Coming to the leaks, we can see some improved magnified areas, but it is not revealed how the modules will properly attach. We do not expect Google to go wrong with it again! All the guesses point that; there would be some magnets plus snap-on functionalities that will allow locking or unlocking. Using this technology will not allow the parts used to fall apart, hence keeping the Google dreams intact. Let’s wait and watch till we get to know more.
