Project Ara, Google’s modular smartphone project, will finally be available next year to any buyers who are excited about the prospect of being able to upgrade their smartphones’ hardware by themselves. And even better, it looks like the first Project Ara smartphones might be quite powerful.
Google’s Project Ara modular smartphone is already a hotly anticipated device for next year — at least by those smartphone users who’d like to be able to take smartphone customization to a whole new level — but the device won’t be the only handset with such abilities.
