Developer ports Ubuntu Touch to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7

Filed under
Ubuntu

There was a time when you could slap any operating system on the mythical HTC HD2, be it Android, Ubuntu, or even Windows RT. The Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II are gradually taking up that mantle, as it is possible to install regular GNU/Linux distributions on them with very little effort. While you can satisfy the urge of having a “true Linux phone” by getting the Librem 5 or PinePhone, their hardware configurations are unfortunately dated. Several community-driven projects, such as UBports and postmarketOS, are trying to bridge the gap between regular consumer Android devices and mainstream Linux distributions, and Project Halium plays a huge role in this development scene. Now, XDA Recognized Developer erfanoabdi has decided to dip his toe in this particular domain, as he has ported Ubuntu Touch to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7.
