What news will Ubuntu Phone have during next 2017?

Ubuntu Phone

There are very few hours left until 2016 ends and 2017 begins, a year in which we will meet new devices, new versions of our favorite programs. But What will happen to Ubuntu Phone?

About future versions of Ubuntu we have confirmation, about new programs we also have certainty but What will happen to Ubuntu Phone? Far we don't know anything about the project or the future of our Ubuntu phones.

The mystery about the future of Ubuntu Phone is such that we do not know what the new OTA-15 will bring or if there will be new updates to the operating system. And it goes without saying about the devices. Currently you can not buy any mobile with Ubuntu Phone.

It is not yet known what news Ubuntu Phone will bring for 2017

Neither BQ nor Meizu already sell the devices with Ubuntu Phone and neither the companies nor Canonical have spoken about new devices that are released soon. We don't know anything either on special versions that unite Ubuntu Desktop with Ubuntu Phone, a mystery that remains magnificently at the moment.

We may not know anything until in two months when Canonical exhibits devices at the MWC in Barcelona. And we may also know something about the new update of the mobile operating system with its new functions or the arrival of MIR to these types of devices.

It goes without saying that we may also find a new tablet with Ubuntu to compete with other similar devices. But it is something that we are totally unaware of.

I personally believe that Canonical and its partners will launch each company a new mobile phone and a new tablet this year. Thus, in general we will have two new devices with 4G technology and a fingerprint sensor and a powerful tablet. Thus, among the new functions, Ubuntu Phone may include electronic payment apps, apps that are not yet in Ubuntu. But this is all a personal opinion What do you think? Do you think there will be a new device with Ubuntu Phone? What will the new Ubuntu Phone update bring?

    Yes, there are electronic payment applications, I have bought two for my Ubuntu Phone and it also came with one bought in advance, I suppose to promote it.

    A good option would be a dual boot, or multi OS
