The world of smartphone is pretty much homogeneous in terms of both hardware and software. The world voted for Android and iOS inside a flat slab. That is it. Which means most manufacturers must produce smartphones like that if they want to make money. If you want a particular type of smartphone different from what the rest of humanity has agreed to, you have to make it by yourself. And that is what XDA has done.

F(x)tec Pro1 X launched

The F(x)tec Pro1 X runs LineageOS 17 out of the box. That is a first. In addition, if you don’t want to use Android, yours can boot with Ubuntu Touch OS.

F(x)tec Pro1 X has a 6-inch AMOLED curved display, a 3200mAh battery and Quick Charge 3.0. There is a dual camera at the back and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Powering it is a fairly old Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. If the pictures and specs sound familiar, it is because the F(x)tec Pro1 X is an enhanced version of the F(x)tec Pro 1, a 2019 smartphone.

Instead of 6GB RAM and 128GB internal memory though, XDA has bumped the F(x)tec Pro1 X up to 8 GB RAM and 256GB internal memory.
