Modular phone Project Ara gets new processor in update26
Meanwhile, those who won Project Ara handsets in a contest, will find their modular phones arriving later than expected. Google says that these units were coated with an incorrect material. Corrected versions of the phone will be shipped in about two weeks. If you are waiting to receive a Project Ara handset that you won in a contest, be patient. They will soon arrive. The version of the phone that Google is sending contest winners, does not include the new SoC.
Google also announced on Friday that "you can expect to see a major new MDK release and new developer hardware, followed by our second Developers Conference later this year." If you're still excited about the prospects of putting together your own phone, stay tuned.
