Fairphone 4 support
Hey, The Fairphone 3 was requested to support CalyxOS, now that the FP4 is announced I think it's time to approach Fairphone as a company. In fact the FP4 is the first FP that, IMHO, looks good, have nice specs and doesn't looks like a compromised smartphone. 128Gb storage on base model, SD 750G (5G), AMOLED display and the biggest part 5 f*cking year of warranty ! That's awesome and it could mean 3-5 years of major android updates. Yes it's expensive but that's the point of fairtrade and paid workers. I'm looking at you Tim Cook...
Fairphone authorized there users to unlock bootloader and flashing custom ROM which is a good starting point. It even has a guide for it (FP3)
Next, I know that CalyxOS needs to be able to relock the bootloader for security reasons. And that's why you should contact FairPhone team. They look open about this and open source ! see The /e/OS (a french degoogled LineageOS fork) can be install and having the bootloader locked again.
So they should accept to spend a little time to help you support relocked bootloader ;)
I honestly prefer CalyxOS over /e/OS, it's more polished, less bloated, feels more like stock android, and you guys made awesome updates every single month (also all the advanced privacy features). But the fact that /e/OS support FP3 and should support FP4 is a big + for them.
Also, maybe you could be featured on their website like /e/foundation idk, but if you can it will bring new users, more donations and the world will be a little bit nicer. And if not well you will still benefits from supporting this unique european smartphone brand as it's expend your variety of supported device.
Privacy on a fair more sustainable smartphone should not be difficult as many eco-friendly people are privacy concensious.
If you can add support for FP3 and FP3+ it would be nice ;)
