The UBports team has been working on supporting more platforms, including the PinePhone, the Librem 5, and the Raspberry Pi. While work on all platforms is going well and initial progress in getting the mobile operating system running on these devices has been successful, there are still challenges remaining. One of the hurdles UBports developers now face is the Librem 5 devkit and the final product use some different hardware components. "Unfortunately, hardware changes between the Librem 5 devkit and the final phone mean that we can't be certain that any of the fixes we make on the devkit will carry over to the final product. Purism informed us that we will be receiving Librem 5 devices sometime in 2020. Purism says they want to ship to backers who paid for the Librem 5 device first, prior to sending us devices for development. For those reasons, we can not commit to more development on the platform until we have a final device." Additional details can be found in a UBports blog post. People who are receiving Librem 5 phones now will be running a mobile version of PureOS with a GNOME-based interface.
