The phone was released in early 2019, and was especially targeted to the Indian and Chinese market. It is, however, possible to get it delivered to other countries.

Hardware remarks

  • The vibrations on this phone are rough: they can be OK for alarms and gaming, but for haptic feedback it’s likely you’ll want to turn them off.
  • The microphone build is of a rather low quality: the porter has done its best to tune the parameters and reduce the amount of noise, but there’s still a residual. If you are looking for high quality audio recording, this phone might not be for you.
  • There’s a FM radio chip in the phone, and efforts are ongoing to have it working in Ubuntu Touch

Did the maintainer say that feature ‘works’ but you know from doing it that it really doesn’t?

Start by searching the bug device issue if you found it, hopefully the porter is on it. 'Subscribe' to the issue in case it get solved.

Couldn't find it?

Uh-oh… Well it is time to let the porter and everyone else know about the fail and send the tech magic back to the workshop for a makeover.

1. Read 'Bug Reporting' section in UBports docs on 'How to report a bug'.

2. Then (this time), head to GitHub Issues and submit it, so the porter knows about it.
