I was earing the Fairephone was build based an open licence for the hardware. Is it the case ?

Fairphone has a strong focus on open source, open hardware and open design practices
I don’t think the current Fairphone models can be called Open Source Hardware as the hardware design / PCB layout has not been made public.
Is it already published?
If FP made it’s hardware Open (licensed), that would be a huge deal-maker. Stallmanists can currently not really own a modern smartphone, and even if FP devices are not top-of-the-line, they are certainly up to par with modern standards.
FairPhone would dominate the market for all of us.
It would already be great to have 100% open source hardware drivers.
