Version 0.02 of modular private smartphone.
It has the following parts:
· Manga screen.
· Raspberry pi zero W.
· Fona 3G.
· Powerboost 1000C. It will be changed in the future because it doesn't give enough current to power up the raspberry pi and the other components. An alternative is ups Pico , but it is very big, more alternatives will be searched:
· 3D printed case.
You can download the freeCAD files through the following link:
In the next version the microphone, speaker, 3G Antena, volume control and on/off/lock/unlock button need to be included.

I made a prototype of the modular private smartphone using FreeCAD:
This model will be useful to make a case for the smartphone.
It can be downloaded from the project files:

In this video I show a prototype of the modular private smartphone, with the following parts:
· Manga screen.
· Raspberry Pi 2 B (in the next prototype the pi zero w will be used).
· Fona 2G (in the next prototype the Fona 3G will be used).
Together with Gerard we made a software to make/receive calls and read/send SMS that you can connect directly to the raspberry pi (without the need of an arduino)
The software can be downloaded from the following link:
The python file and the png images need to be in the same folder.
For the software to run the following commands need to be used in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install python-serial
sudo apt-get install python-tools
sudo apt-get install python-qt
sudo chmod 777 /dev/ttyAMA0
Open modular_private_smartphone_v0.4.0.py with the python IDLE (using python 2.7) and run the module.
