Announced today :



https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-communicator#/
We want you to be the first to know that, today, we are introducing our new flagship device: the Cosmo Communicator.

Cosmo is designed to be a great phone, a great pocket computer and a great camera - powerful enough to be the only mobile device that you need to carry around and small enough to fit in your pocket.

We have listened to Gemini community and have incorporated the most requested features into the Cosmo Communicator specification.

The Cosmo is now open for crowdfunding on Indiegogo here.

Some exciting features of the Cosmo include:
• A newly-designed integrated physical backlit keyboard
• Dual-display: an external 2" touchscreen when device is closed and large 6" touchscreen when device is open
• A hi-res 24MP external camera
• Fingerprint sensor and smart toggle button for security and control
• NFC for payment

Cosmo will run on Android 9 (Pie) OS and be capable of running Linux-based operating systems, such as Sailfish and Debian. It will have Wi-Fi and dual 4G connectivity. It’s powered by the new 8-core Mediatek P70 processor, with 6GB of RAM and a huge 128GMB of internal memory (extendable via a microSD card).

We have a very special early-bird perk for our first 500 backers who will get the Cosmo Communicator for 31% off. Check it out here!

We hope that you really like our new Cosmo Communicator! Please support us on Indiegogo to make the Cosmo a reality.

#GoGoCosmo

Yours,
Planet Computers Team

I'd rather like to have Official Full SFOS support on the Gemini instead of a new device. And as rcolistete pointed out there are a lot of similarities between the Gemini and the Cosmo. The only thing I actually do miss on the Gemini is a backlit keyboard.

So happy they add a backlit keyboard. I appreciate the extra screen as well. Don't really need the camera but nice. The nfc and fingerprinted reader not sure if I trust on a device that defaults to android.

So do these devices require android blobs or can I run a clean machine with only Debian/Maemo-Leste/sailfish (I know this also uses android blobs).

Currently Android is required if I'm not mistaken, but they promised that to change in the future. That was for the Gemini though.

IMO, that will never change. Or at least not while they use MTK. I get that none of the current major SoC maker is not interested in linux as 1st class citizen but still, there are lousy ones and the terrible ones and MTK is at the bottom of them all.
Qualcomm is probably the best choice but we can see how that goes with sailfish, a year and a half after the announcement and with the device from SONY open program there are still HW related issues that don't exist on android part of the story.
