Linux smartphone PinePhone

For Android Independent HatersThere was a curious option - Linux-smartphone. The device was introduced by Pine64, which released the Pinebook laptop some time ago. The smartphone, without thinking twice, was called PinePhone.

PinePhone thing is inexpensive - priced at $ 150. Nothing super-cool in its characteristics is observed: a 5.9 ″ LCD screen with a resolution of 720x1440, a new and modest AllWinner A63 chipset, only 2 GB + 16 GB of memory, a 5-megapixel OV6540 main camera, and a 2-megapixel front camera.

The obvious pluses are the USB Type-C port and a normal 3.5 mm audio jack.

An obvious, but obviously cool plus is the ability to install the optional operating system on PinePhone: Ubuntu Touch, Plasma Mobile, Aurora OS or Sailfish OS.
