PinePhone with Mobian will have all the basic functionality of the phone: including voice calls, SMS, mobile broadband, Wi-Fi, front and rear cameras.

Mobian’s developers caution that the software is still largely in progress and evolving almost daily. It is important that you update your phone immediately after receiving it.
