Purism is an organization working to develop a smart phone which will run a completely free and open source operating system, specifically PureOS. The Purism team have announced that they are working with the UBports team to get the modern version of Ubuntu Touch running on the phone's hardware: "Purism and UBports are partnering to offer Ubuntu Touch as a supported operating system on Purism’s Librem 5 smart phone. Being able to work with Purism and focus on the Librem 5 hardware platform ensures that the Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system developed by UBports will be well supported, tightly integrated, and that future compatibility will remain. When the Librem 5 is delivered to pre-order customers, it will become one of just a few smartphones that support the free and open source operating system." This means when the Librem 5 phone launches in 2019 it should be able to run PureOS with GNOME or KDE's Plasma Mobile desktop, or run UBports with the Unity 8 interface. The Purism blog has more details.
