When you want to buy a new smartphone, you can come up with many brands and models. However, when you look at the essence of the business, all options are using either IOS or Andriod operating system. More importantly, if they produces in the same year, we see that they have similar equipment and features. So although the option seems plentiful, most phones actually have the same phone in their heart.
A hardware manufacturer, purism has decided to develop its own smartphone to disrupt the situation we have described above. The most important feature of this smartphone, Librem 5 is using the Linux-based Pureos operating system instead of the Android operating system. Purism Librem 5 is in the development phase for a long time. But we may not be far from the final product.

The device based on Purism’s customized I. MX8M hardware comes to the fore with its security and privacy features.
