“- +” is a modular smartphone concept that allows you to mix a group of functions into a single element. It is inspired by the recently popular innovation of customizable phones such as Ara Phoneblocks, the vision here is to design a phone with independent elements, which mean, each module can operates as independent component. Designed by Bez Dimitri, this concept phone is structured just like a lego where each element is stacked together, connected through USB micro B plug.
The great thing about “- +” concept is the structured connection, it won’t have a problem like Ara. There’s a mini USB plug connected to the “+” structure that allows mechanical and electrical connection between each part of the handset. There’s no printed circuit that connects all functions, in this way, at any moment, you can detach an element without disturbing the others. However, there are still other parts which are connected to each other such as the camera module and the screen.

The idea of having a modular smartphone here is to avoid upgrading your phone each year just to be able to enjoy one or two latest features. Using “- +” concept smartphone, you only need to replace the model instead of buy all together a new phone, it’s much more efficient and it keeps your hard earned money in your wallet.
