The Fairphone 3
... was the subject of a question recently...
Qualcomm Snapdragon 632
64GB + microSD card slot
USB Type - C
... does it look as if it's got fairly UBports-friendly specs?

@3arn0wl Think it's more down to the version of Android involved, if it's 9 its a problem according to the last Q&A.
Ah! It does appear to be running Android 9. Well that's a pity.

At least it has an unlockable bootloader, though.
I guess selling an Android phone now with a version below 9 would be insane for any company.
There is a thread on the Fairphone forum stating Open OS will come later: https://forum.fairphone.com/t/fp3-fairphone-open-os/52301
Still not much in the way of LTE bands that would work on most American carriers. Pity, as there are many here who would be interested in a more sustainable phone, even if they're unable to break a Google or Android addiction.

FYI the kernel source code of the FP3 just has been released, see https://code.fairphone.com/projects/fairphone-3-gpl.html
It has also been added to a git repo to be easily browsable: https://github.com/FairphoneMirrors/android_kernel_fairphone_sdm632
Thanks for that @Fla.
No doubt they're working on getting Fairphone Open to work on it, and would like to see UT customers too...
