It is unclear whether earlier phone models which run Ubuntu Touch will be able to run the new operating system when it is released.
Probably not because there are entirely too many dependencies on blobs.

When the snap packaging initiative was announced, it was claimed that a single binary package would work on any Linux server, cloud, desktop or device.
That conflicts with the architecture dependencies we observe in Snap packages being made available on uappexplorer.
...

There are several things which need to be fixed on Ubuntu Touch, the operating system used on the Ubuntu phone.
'several' fails to indicate just how impossible those things are.
When the decision to replace xorg was made it moved the goalposts by decades.
