FP2 and FP3 are modular phones, so below is a list of existing official & community created modules as well as a wishlist for modules. This is a #wiki, feel free to edit and improve it. You can add features you’d like to see directly to the wishlist, or discuss them in a separate topic or in the meta discussion for this wiki first.

You can quickly link to this topic with the #moduleslist tag.

  • future updates to the modules with (then) current components (i.e. better camera, faster processor, more RAM, USB-C etc.)
  • cheaper versions of the existing modules with lower specs, to make phone more affordable
  • alternative hardware components that allow software freedom. E.g. a i.MX6, OMAP4/5 or Allwinner chipset to allow the installation of Replicant. A OMTP Headphone mod. (tiny switch on the PCB) (see this topic)
