does anyone have official information or an idea regarding fairphone’s plans to keep the FP 2
Open OS updated?
I am aware that focus now mainly lies on FP 3, but I suppose there still are a lot of FP 2’s out there working finely and requiring more frequent updates.
The last update came out half a year ago:
Fairphone Open 19.11.2
A good question, as Google themselves stopped security updates for Android 7 since November 2019.
No, take lineage its Android 10 already and works well
That sounds quite bad
It’s not as if there are no Android OSes for the Fairphone 2 which still get security updates.
LineageOS is Android 10 currently, /e/ is Android 9 currently (preparing Android 10) … Users who prioritise timely security updates are already running one of those, I guess.
And Fairphone themselves are on their way to bring Android 9 officially …

Our goal is for your Fairphone to last as long as possible, well beyond the current average of buying a new phone…
A new version based on Android 9 seems to be in the works. (See
