Considering to buy FP2 - Long-term Update Situation w/ Lineage, Fairphone OS

Hi!

Does it still make sense to buy a Fairphone 2 end of 2018? As of today, manufactures have more or less predictable (Update) Lifetimes of 2 - 5 years.

How long do people expect Fairphone 2 to get updates? I did some research on Google but I couldn’t really find a page with an “authorative answer”. (That would be a big wish of mine, being a former FP1U user. The update situation was opaque to say the least.)

Also speaking of Fairphone OS, is there a real expectation that Android 8 will be supported? How about Lineage? I realize 15.1 is Oreo based but what when Android 9 or 10 will be released? Will the drivers be ported? Questions over questions…

Thanks a lot, Philip
