The Pinephone smartphone project, which you can use by installing Linux distributions, has finally begun distribution. The phone, which has an old hardware, is not yet fully functional. Its purpose is experimental.

Linux-based PinePhone started shipping

Today, it is not possible to come across a different operating system in the smartphone world except Android and iOS. Many companies, especially Ubuntu, have been disappointed, trying their luck with open source distributions in the past years.

Pinephone features and price

The PinePhone project believes it can change something in the market. Pine64, a Linux-based developer cards and laptop maker, has been successful in crowdfunding platforms for the Linux-based smartphone some time ago. Now the phone has started shipping.

The Pinephone project is not intended to gain a share in the smartphone market, but to spread Linux-based phones. It appeals to those who know things that require trouble such as breaking the system or throwing a ROM rather than the end user.

Pinephone is quite old in terms of hardware. There are features such as 5.9 inch LCD screen, 4-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage capacity, 5MP resolution rear camera, USB Type-C port, battery of 3000mAh capacity, assigned physical key to turn off wireless connections.

Pinephone does not come with a ready-made operating system. Since it was in its early stages, users need to install the Linux distribution itself. However, it does not fully support Linux distributions yet and there are errors.

On crowdfunding platforms, Pinephone was available for a minimum of $ 150 in donations. It is not known whether the phone will be available for sale in the near future, but the company wants to develop a Linux-based tablet and a smartwatch.
