FP3+ camera module discontinued?

This is a bit of a shocking development for me, too. I never minded when the 12 MP module was shown as discontinued because a perfectly compatible substitute with better specs was available, but no FP3 camera module at all … :unamused: Having said that, while I am quite unhappy with Fairphone’s decision, the camera module is obviously not as essential to the core functionality of the FP3 as the bottom module. – Speaking of essential modules, the latest estimate for FP3 displays is now “the end of April”.

I would strongly recommend to those needing a camera module to use this forum’s marketplace category. My guess is that there are probably still quite a couple of retired functional FP3 camera modules (without +) resting in drawers.


From the discontinued product descriptions (at the bottom of both versions’ pages):
