Small German phone manufacturer Shift has announced that it has quite the interesting offering coming next year in the Shift5 +. The smartphone will pack the buyer's choice of either Windows 10 Mobile or Android 5.1, and will come with modular parts inside.
The exact specs of the phone won't be finalized until December when pre-orders open up, but for now, the phone is planned to come with either a Snapdragon quad or oct-core CPU, more than 2GB of RAM, and at least 32GB of on-board storage. There's also a 5-inch IPS display on board, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter, and a removable battery between 2,500 and 3,000mAh.
What makes the Shift5 + interesting, however, is that users can replace more than just the battery. Shift says that, in case of damage, users will be able to easily swap out the display, internal memory, and "other important components."
The phone will go up for pre-order at €399 starting in December, which is also when the specs are due to be finalized. However, you're in for a bit of a wait if you order one, as the Shift5 + isn't expected to start shipping until Q3 2016, when its retail price will bump up to €444.
