Xiaomi CEO. Lei Jun has recently commented on his official Weibo account stating that Xiaomi have discussed the possibilities of developing such Smartphone. And new report suggests that Xiaomi’s Modular Phone Project is named as “Magic Cube” and it uses brightly colored blocks which snap into place like Lego bricks. Each “brick” contains specific parts of the phone, which can be its RAM, CPU, camera or even battery. That was all which we currently know about Xiaomi’s “Magic Cube”, but we are expecting to hear more soon.
