According to the manufacturer, the successor to the specialized smartphone, PinePhone Pro, which launched at the end of 2019, can be pre-ordered and has appropriately been tweaked.
The PinePhone Pro, not a second-generation PinePhone, but a higher-end PinePhone, is the successor to the Linux smartphone (PinePhone) that debuted two years ago manufacturer, Pine64. It is a quick and premium phone with serious performance. It was strengthened as a result of improvements.
The Rockchip RK2299S chip is used in the PinePhone Pro Knowledge Center. This 1.5 GHz chip is a tweaked version of the PineBook Pro’s chipset. There’s also 4GB of RAM and 128GB of native memory, and actual hardware privacy switches. The back camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels. Improved performance allows for faster surfing, HD movie viewing, and even simple image editing.
The PinePhone Pro is slightly larger (160.8 x 76.6 x 11.1 mm) than the original PinePhone (160.5 mm x 76.6 mm x 9.2 mm). However, it is backward compatible with PinePhone case additions, such as the future physical keyboard. The device will set you back $400.
Of course, this version is primarily geared at operating system engineers and others who brazenly intervene in hardware rather than end-users. The latter will have to wait longer for PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition if they want PinePhone Pro. Pre-orders for this product will be available soon.
