A $50 open source smartphone based on the Raspberry Pi Zero

This project is launching soon.

You'll be notified about news and stock updates for this project.

ZeroPhone is an open source, Linux-powered, $50 smartphone. It has no carrier locks, bloated apps, or data mining, and it doesn’t depend on big companies - instead, its open source hardware and software give you as much control over your phone as possible.

ZeroPhone is user-friendly and will have the typical features of a phone, but will give you advanced features when you need them. You can modify and repair it easily, and it’s power-user and programmer-friendly. It’s also built from widely available components, so you can build a ZeroPhone independently if you need to.

"The device promises no carrier locks, no pre-loaded apps and good riddance from harvesting of data without users’ knowledge."



"The ZeroPhone comes with several extras not found on your typical handset, including a mini-HDMI port and a single full-size USB 2.0 port, alongside the more typical support for Wi-Fi and a 3.5mm headphone jack."
