PinePhone Manjaro Community Edition Linux Phone Pre-orders to Start Mid-September

Pine64 is producing PinePhone Linux phone in batches and each time there’s a different Linux operating system. It started with the BraveHeart edition in November 2019 without any OS at all, following by the UBPorts community edition, then the PostMarkerOS community edition, and we should expect pre-orders for PinePhone Manjaro Community Edition to start mid-September 2020.

Just like for the PostMarketOS edition, the new PinePhone Manjaro CE will be offered in two versions:

  • $149 with 2GB RAM, 16GB eMMC flash
  • $199 with 3GB RAM, 32GB eMMC flash and a USB-C dock for people wanting to connect the phone to a monitor and use it as an entry-level Linux PC

PinePhone Manjaro

The phone still has the same hardware with an Allwinner A64 quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, a 5.95-inch IPS display, rear & front-facing cameras, as well as 4G LTE, WiFi 4 and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.

The additional USB-C dock that comes with the $199 model is equipped with one 10/100M Ethernet port, two USB Type-A ports, HDMI video output, and power input via USB-C.

Manjaro Arm Linux Phone

Purchasing the phone will also help support Manjaro development since Pine64 will pay out $10 to the project for each PinePhone Manjaro CE sold. If you already own another PinePhone model and would like to try Manjaro, you can do so by downloading one of the three Manjaro PinePhone build variants (Lomiri, Phosh, Plasma Mobile) available on Manjaro Arm’s downloads repository.

Supplying a dock to use this phone as big screen entry level PC is a great idea.
