PuzzlePhone Shows How Simple Modular Technology Can Be

November 5, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The power of customization is something we cannot skip at any cost in modern-day technologies. That’s why even at a slow pace, the smartphone world is turning its head towards the modular technology.

We have seen plenty of those in recent days, although only a few from have got their dreams getting materialized.

One unique entry in the list is the PuzzlePhone, which made its debut during the last month of 2014.

Within a year since then, they have now successfully pushed ahead of their schedule to get their ‘simple modular’ smartphone up for crowd-funding.

What makes the PuzzlePhone stand out from that of the rest is with how simple is by the manner in which it has made modular technology appear to us. In its pure form, PuzzlePhone is formed by nothing more than three pieces, which the people behind it calling it the Heart, the Spine, and the Brain.

Of course, there had to be one compromise if they had to keep it simple, and that has been made with individual customization. You won’t be able to try different RAMs onboard keeping your other specs unaltered.

Instead, PuzzlePhone offers a bundle of 3GB RAM, 64-bit octa-core processor, GPU and storage as a whole in the form of block. That’s what forms its Brain. There’s also a 12MP cam attached to its rear.

Speak of the Spine, and what you get there is the block that is unified with the interface segment, which includes a 5-inch Full HD display, speakers, 5MP front-cam and microphones.

The third and final block is the heart, which you can guess could be the battery. The pack available offers a charge of 2800mAh in it

We mentioned earlier that PuzzlePhone limits individual customization. But that can be erased, provided they offer numerous blocks of brain that comes with various combinations.

As of now, we are not sure whether that would be really the case. There isn’t much info on whether they would be offering the building blocks in wide variety.

PuzzlePhone arrives with only the spec-juggling of onboard storage. The versions available are the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB variants. You can check the pricing and other details of the modular smartphone from their page in Indiegogo, from where you can also back and pre-order your preferred piece.
