6 Smartphones under Rs 10,000

1) Google’s Project Ara

Google’s Project Ara

When it comes to mobile phones, Google’s focus has traditionally been on software, with its hardware involvement limited to working with phone manufacturers on its Nexus range of devices.

But now Google is ramping up its involvement in the physical-side of mobility Project Ara. This promises to make the smartphone modular, allowing users to have the phone they want without the bits they don’t.

Plans for the project have been put on hold until 2016, despite originally being slated for testing and launch later in 2015. This is according to Project Ara’s Twitter account, which confirmed the delay and attributed it to “lots of iterations… more than we thought”.

The smartphones will be built by inserting modules into a metal frame known as an “Endo” or endoskeleton, which Google would make this frame and this would link all the other modules together. The frame is expected to cost around $15 to buy.

Two frames will be available; a “mini” and a “medium” frame. A “large” frame will be available in the future. The mini will be roughly the size of a Nokia 3310, the medium the size of an LG Nexus 5, and the large around the size of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

There will be a slot in the front for a display and various slots at the back for the individual modules, which will be hot-swappable so the phone can remain powered on (the frame sports a backup battery). Modules are said to be held in place with magnets.

Google is hoping to introduce an entry-level Grey Phone into the market that will cost as little as $50.
