      Fairphone is offering camera hardware upgrades for existing phones

    Last year, repair guide site iFixit tore down the Fairphone 3 and gave the modular-designed a rare, perfect 10/10 repairability score. Today, Fairphone demonstrated just how far its philosophy of modular phone design can take its users, by offering the massively-upgraded cameras from its newly-released Fairphone 3+ model to owners of the earlier Fairphone 3.

    Fairphone designs are noticeably bulkier than typical smartphone designs—but they have a reason to be. Its components have been split into seven replaceable modules in order to extend the service life of each Fairphone. Battery getting weak? It's replaceable. Dropped your phone and broke the screen? Not only replaceable, guaranteed replaceable—and for reasonably technical end users, user -replaceable—with easily purchased parts from the factory.

    The original Fairphone 3 launched with a 12 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front camera. The newly-released Fairphone 3+ is essentially the same phone, but it offers a refresh on the camera modules, bringing the rear camera to 48 megapixels and the front to 16 megapixels. Owners of the original Fairphone 3 can upgrade by simply purchasing replacement modules from the Fairphone store and replacing them.

    The #Fairphone 3 is looking very interesting with it's modular repairable design and use of recycled and fair materials. The Fairphone 3 has Android 9 on-board but Fiarphone is investigating the possibility to bring the Fairphone Open OS to the Fairphone 3.
