There are very few hours left until the new version of Ubuntu is launched, but it will not be the only thing we have new with a Humanity flavor. Recently there has been talk of Librem 5 Linux, a smartphone that will come out with Gnu / Linux operating systems and that has announced that it will have Ubuntu Phone from UBPorts. This being the smartphone that many expected, then really it will be the first smartphone to come out for the mobile operating system that Ubuntu created.
The terminal seeks to have totally free software and therefore will have three operating systems to be chosen by the user. Two of them will be PurismOS, one with Gnome and another with Plasma Mobile and the third operating system will be Ubuntu Phone or Ubuntu Touch.In this launch process, the UBPorts team will intervene by adapting Ubuntu Phone to the device so that when it is launched it is as optimal as possible for the user. The leader of the UBPorts project has spoken about this project confirming their collaboration and the work they have started so that Librem 5 Linux can be distributed with Ubuntu Touch.
As we have said before, this development is very important for Ubuntu Phone, not only because it revitalizes it but because it is the first smartphone to be created or distributed with this operating system. will encourage the development of the platform and by extension the launch of new devices that are designed for Ubuntu Phone.
Although perhaps the most interesting thing is that this launch will give new resources to the UBPorts project for portability to new devices that are compatible with Ubuntu Touch and new updates for the operating system. So it seems that there is no doubt about the life of the Ubuntu Phone project, a project that has not fallen on deaf ears and that may cause Canonical to lament in the not too distant future, don't you think?
