If you’ve been in it for a few years android world you will know that detachable and modular phones are nothing strange. Google had a fairly successful modular mobile project for a few years that ultimately came to nothing. Now Xiaomi can try to awaken, again, interest in these devices. The company has filed a patent that lets us see the possible future of its smartphones. The idea of modular mobiles is to be able to change certain components to update them without having to completely change mobile. This is what this wants to do Xiaomi mobile with the camera.
In this Xiaomi you can change the camera for a better one
The idea is interesting and much simpler than Google’s project of a few years ago. This assumption Xiaomi mobile would only have one module and it would be the camera. What does this offer to users? The possibility of update camera without having to change the entire device.
This is very interesting if you think you need a better camera over time. If you like the design of the mobile and its performance is still good, you can improve your camera without spending hundreds of euros / dollars on another brand new device.
It is an idea that can be implemented in almost all components, the camera being the simplest. It is one of the few components of the smartphones that are already in sight, so this mobile with modular camera it wouldn’t be much different from any other device.
If after 6 months of having the device you decide that you want more zoom, you just have to buy a camera module with this feature. For the user it would be something as simple as remove one module and put another.
At the moment it is only a patent, but if there is a company in the market that could do something like that, it is Xiaomi. The cost would not be too high and in some markets users would welcome this detail with open arms.
