Hello,
I has the project to get a "real" Linux phone (not an altered Linux like Android), both to support Open Source development and because I'm a Linux fan. After some research on the web, I discovered Manjaro with Plasma Mobile, ehich. I also found phones shipped with this OS, but I am not in position to buy a new phone.
Today I have two phones: a Wiko Sunny 2, my old phone I never took time to get rid of – a "garbage" phone that nobody will regret if I run into troubles with – and my current phone (a Xiaomi Redmi 6, 8-cores ARM Cortex A-53, RAM 3Gb, 64GB storage). The question is: is it possible to safely install Manjaro Plasma Mobile on one of them, or even on both? And if so, how can I do it?

Not sure about all of that, but Pine64 have two phones on sale now with Manjaro Plasma.
