The joke that the popular XDA developer community will eventually have its own smartphone has become a reality. The portal was at the forefront of the LineageOS project and its predecessor CyanogenMod, and for many years has been at the forefront of developing custom firmware to help breathe new life into smartphones. Today, October 27, XDA announced its first smartphone called Pro1-X in collaboration with F (x) tec. In addition, it is the world’s first smartphone running LineageOS out of the box.
The choice of software was not accidental. The predecessor to LineageOS – CyanogenMod – came from the XDA developer community. Since then, the history of the site and these projects has been inextricably linked. In addition, the Pro1-X gives users a choice, offering Ubuntu Touch instead of LineageOS, and possibly later versions of this device with other operating systems.
Pro1-X may seem familiar to many users. This is actually a modified version of the F (x) tec Pro1 smartphone released last year. The novelty has received an increased amount of RAM and storage – from 6/128 GB to 8/256 GB. In addition, the Pro1-X comes in the new Discovery Blue color.
The Pro1-X is built on the Snapdragon 835 mobile platform. It has a full QWERTY keyboard that slides out from under the display, dual SIM support, a separate microSD card slot, a fingerprint scanner, a USB-C port, HDMI support and much more. … Photographing is not his strong point, however, the smartphone has a dual main camera with 12 and 5 megapixel sensors, as well as an 8 megapixel front camera.
The key feature of the Pro1-X smartphone in XDA is called LineageOS, which allows you to go beyond the experience offered by conventional mobile devices on Android. In particular, the Privacy Guard feature, which was replaced by the Permissions Hub in LineageOS 17, allows you to control the use of permissions by installed applications. In addition to LineageOS, there is a large community of Ubuntu users who have dreamed of having a smartphone with this operating system, and Pro1-X is the first Qualcomm-based smartphone with Ubuntu Touch. Moreover, users can connect it with an HDMI cable to the monitor and use the display as a trackpad.
The Pro1-X retails for $ 899, but a limited number of smartphones are available for XDA community members at $ 639. By pre-order, the new product will cost even less – $ 599.
