    Facebook may be working on a modular phone
    acebook’s Building 8, the secretive division led by former DARPA director Regina Dugan, is looking into developing modular smartphones, according to a report from Business Insider.

    The company filed for a patent, published today, that details a “modular electromagnetic device” that would alleviate the issue of “expensive and wasteful” conventional electronics that consumers purchase and then dispose of when they’re inevitably outdated in a couple of years. The patent describes both a phone and a smart speaker as potential product categories.

    Facebook might be working on a modular phone. :p ;)

    Facebook filed a patent for a modular device, and several people who worked on Google's Project Ara are now at Facebook.
