The Volla Phone is a crowdfunded smartphone designed to ship with a version of Android that’s been stripped of proprietary Google apps and features.
As a stretch goal, the creators of the Volla Phone project promised to support a GNU/Linux-based operating system. Since that goal was reached, the Volla Phone can be ordered with a choice of the Android-based Volla OS or with Ubuntu Touch.
There’s also a community-supported build of the Linux-based Sailfish operating system for the Volla Phone.
The Volla Phone is up for pre-order through Indiegogo.
