Here is an update from Adam Pigg: in future will be easier for community porters to add the fingerprint sensor support. Really promising!
To all #sailfishos community porters. If you want to bring fingerprint support to your device, please try https://t.co/X9KeSfANED. See myself or rinigus for help/advice. Requires android 8+ base. PRs welcome, this a community project. @jollahq

The Redmi Note 7 porting by Danct 12 is going on, and a rebuilt release is coming soon!
J-D is directly looking at this porting: there is a Note 7 ready for this scope, and later some content will be crafted.
Hopefully I can release it tomorrow! Stay tuned.

May had a positive mood: here is some good tweet you may have missed!
I've been testing #SailfishOS on my #Pinephone the last few days. I forgot how beautiful this OS was. Really throws me back to the Meego days on the old Nokia's. I do believe I've found my daily driver. 🙂#Linux #linuxonmobile #piners @thepine64 pic.twitter.com/aw5UQEwbMC

(Let’s remind the funky and sleek design of the TOHKBD)
There are several interesting devices from Pine 64: now it’s the turn of the Pinetab, a 10 “tablet with a compatible keyboard, which could bring a Sailfish OS tablet to the west countries!
(If Sailfish OS can be flashed and works in Pinetime hardware. To be tested this summer)
The Hype grows…

Pine 64 finally answers! So the hardware will be available later on july.
You've waited long enough. The PineTab preorders are now open!
