The PinePhone is a smartphone platform created by the Pine64 community and supported by many partner projects. It should be available for five years from its consumer launch date, which is expected to occur in March 2020.
PINE64 Smartphone dubbed "PinePhone" is used in the community effort privacy smartphone and collaborates with mobile OS developers/communties.  
 
PinePhone development has been broken down into three distinct phases:
 
* First phase - Project Anakin
 
* Second phase - purpose-built development kit code named "Don't be evil" and introduced at FOSDEM 2019
 
* Lastly, the third phase which is the PinePhone itself - scheduled to be prototype released in September 2019 and early developer access batch released in Q4 2019 (pending on software development).

History

The PinePhone was announced at FOSDEM 2019, February 2-4, 2019. The first Project Don't be evil devkit was on display at the Pine64 booth during the weekend.

Hardware revisions

The PinePhone platform went through two "developer kit" phases that partner projects used to prove their software on the upcoming platform.

  1. . Project Anakin
  2. . Project Don't be evil

Additionally, two "early adopter" revisions of the platform were created:

  1. . PinePhone 1.0 "Developer"
  2. . PinePhone 1.1 "Brave Heart"

The first generally available PinePhone batch was PinePhone 1.1 "Brave Heart". Pre-orders for this batch started on November 15, 2019. It is expected to ship sometime in December 2019 to January 2020.

A "full release" Pinephone, which will likely have board revision 1.2, will be released in 2020.

Killswitch configuration

The PinePhone features six switches that can be used to configure its hardware. They are numbered 1-6, with switch 1 located nearest to the modem. Their on position is toward the top of the phone.

  1. . Modem: On enables 2G/3G/4G communication and GNSS hardware, off disables.
  2. . WiFi/BT: On enables Wi-Fi and Bluetooth communication hardware, off disables.
  3. . Microphone: On enables audio input from on-board microphones (not 3.5mm jack), off disables.
  4. . Rear camera: On enables the rear camera, off disables.
  5. . Front camera: On enables the front camera, off disables.
  6. . Headphone: On enables audio input and output via the 3.5mm audio jack, off switches the jack to hardware UART mode.
