Probable specifications of Phase 3 (the shipping phone) of PinePhone were posted by tllim and lukasz of @PINE64 on the #pinephone IRC channel on 2019-02-21. Subsequent details have come from the Pine64 forum, @thepine64 on Twitter, @PINE64 here on the UBPorts forum, and now the Pine64 wiki entry for Phase 3 of the PinePhone.
I haven't yet gotten the hang of text formatting on this forum so not sure how to add colored text, so I'm putting my annotations in bolded italics.
- Dimensions 160.5mm x 76.6mm x 9.2mm thick
- Weight between 180g and 200g
- Screen type: IPS capacitive, 16M colors
- Screen size: 5.95" 1440x720, 18:9 aspect ratio
- Screen surface still hardened glass, NOT plastic
- The LCD panel that will soon be delivered on the Phase 2 dev kits is the same as the PinePhone LCD panel but smaller (5.7" vs. 6.0").
- Modem: Quectel EC-25G with worldwide bands
- SIM size: micro
- Quad GSM: 850/900/1800/1900MHz bands 2, 3, 5, 8
- WCDMA bands 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 19
- LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 25*, 26, 28, 38, 39, 40, 41. Per this post by tllim on the Pine64 forum, the modem will be soldered in place in order to keep the phone thin. *probable, per the Wiki and @PINE64's post below.
- VoLTE support obviously this depends on both software support (Ubuntu Touch does not currently support VoLTE) and carrier support (e.g., AT&T in the US currently restricts VoIP to a small list of devices, though rumors say they will open VoLTE to all BYO devices by then end of 2019).
- Wifi: 802.11 b/g/n, single-band, hotspot capable
- Bluetooth: 4.0, A2DP
- Chipset: Allwinner A64
- CPU: Quad-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A-53
- GPU: MALI-400
- Memory: 2-3GB LDRR3 / 16-64GB eMMC
- micro SD supporting SDHC and SDXC. Will be bootable so you can test an OS build without erasing the eMMC (Source)
- Edited post to remove mention of a potential upgrade in specs. Let us see what happens and not put any pressure on Pine64 one way or another.
- USB: USB-C with USB host, 5V 3A fast charge, and alt-c 1080P DisplayPort
- Stereo headphone/mic jack (on bottom of phone) with serial console, same as Pinebook

- Sensors: accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, ambient light
- 3 external switches, up down and power
- The hardware privacy kill switches will be placed inside the case, meaning you'll need to peel off the back of the case to access. This prevents accidental switch off. this tweet refers to the case back as easily removable. tllim later posted on IRC "back case can peel off using finger nail."

- Case is matte black finished plastic

- Samsung J7 3000mAh battery - "they are reliable, relatively inexpensive and easily attainable in most places we checked ... they will also be around for quite some time." A higher capacity batter in the same form may be possible.
