The successor to the specialty smartphone, PinePhone Pro, which debuted at the end of 2019, can be pre-ordered and has been thoroughly tuned according to the manufacturer.
Not a second-generation PinePhone, but a higher-end PinePhone – the manufacturer, Pine64, introduces the successor to the Linux smartphone (PinePhone) introduced two years ago, the PinePhone Pro, adding that it is a fast and premium phone with serious performance. It was strengthened by improvements.
The PinePhone Pro Knowledge Center is the Rockchip RK2299S chip. This 1.5 GHz chip is a modified version of the chipset used in the PineBook Pro. 4GB of RAM and 128GB of native memory and physical hardware privacy switches are also standard. The rear camera is 13 MP. Improved performance contributes to fast surfing, watching HD videos, and even easy image editing.
Although the PinePhone Pro is slightly larger (160.8 x 76.6 x 11.1 mm) than the original version (160.5 mm x 76.6 mm x 9.2 mm), it is backward compatible with PinePhone case accessories such as with the upcoming physical keyboard. The price of the device is $ 400, which is about 124 thousand forints.
The truth, of course, is that this release is aimed primarily at operating system developers and those who boldly intervene in hardware, not so much at end users. If the latter want PinePhone Pro, they will have to wait longer for PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition. This model will be available for pre-order soon.
