Indeed.

But Jollas approach, with a flat screen and a curved casing was nice too!

..but I guess, the additional bezel would make a 5,5 inch device too big.

I really like this thread, it's full of good news and positivity. The slider phone won't be for me, but I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavours. In less than a year, you've gone from "we might be making a keyboard addon for an existing device" to "we're recreating a lost device" to "we're making the first keyboard phone in a long time, with great specifications and an independent OS", it's incredible. I look forward to seeing everything that's yet to come.

I wonder if it's possible to install fullfledged distri's on these types of phones... Is it?
That would be really awesome

You can relatively easily install fullfledged distro in chroot (both on Android and SFOS), but running it as main OS is going to be troublesome.
You need to use Android kernel to make it boot, but the distro likely won't have libhybris and all the phone middleware, and unless Freedreno gets ported, there is no 3D acceleration without libhybris, for example.

There are many chinese tablets with dualboot between win10/android, so SFOS is the problem without drivers? I'd like to have dualboot between SFOS and android.

The reason choose 5.5 over 5.0:
- More "compatible" with Moto Keyboard Mod's slider part, same size, less work
- More space on keypad, means bigger keys and more keys
- Bigger battery
Please add enough keys, for example scandic öä without pressing any other key. Your Moto Z mod have too big tab/shift/enter keys!

User replaceable battery would be good! And is it possible to have some branded battery so it is later easier to find a new one?

I understand that this SoC only supports lpddr3 and emmc 5.1 and not the newer faster much more power efficient lpddr4x and ufs 2.1 probably for cost reasons (the Snapdragon 630 does support those, but is newer and probably much more expensive as well as the components)

But does the screen have Panel Self Refresh technology? The screen could still be power efficient, if the other components can't.

"This "Lauta" device will be branded as Livermorium (Or simply L-Device) But Chenphone is also nice, could be our internal code name between Maemians

I don't want to call it a "Phone" - It is meant to be a pocket computer - as the "Internet Tablet" series that we loved."

I want just to boot into arch or devuan. I don't need phone capabilities.
