I'd contribute but unfortunately the pricetag is too high for me.

well, there's more than one way to look at it. Samsung and huawei are the only vendors that have something that can match the performance and they are even more shitty when it comes to openess. MTK...... no need to waste space on that crap. And the rest of ARMs are also mostly closed and undocumented. At the end all comes down to what do you want more but in reality of open source world, if you want performance and support you need to accept closed source drivers.

Wonder if it would be possible port SFOS to this device. It has no android kernel so no need for hybris? But it will probably use wayland. I do not expect X11.
