    The fairphone 3 is running the 632 snapdragon. I hope it will be supported by linux, an ethical phone with a nice OS would be awesome.

    Nice work by all these people and companies involved.
    Too bad that there is close to no work done on other SoCs than Qualcomms Snapdragon.
    I guess that limits the possible mobile devices one can buy safely in the future

    Sony has a device with sm6125 (SDM665) so in future it will at 99% run mainline when we get to that platform.
    Nice. Thanks for the response.

    Thanks for covering this

    It's also worth to mention that the patch series enables support for SDM636 (a mildly cut-down 660) and possibly SDM658 (*literally* 660 with 2 cores disabled), though nobody has the hardware to test the latter one.

    Phoronix: Independent Developers Tackling Snapdragon 630/660 SoC Support For The Upstream Linux Kernel

    Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 is approaching four years old and the Snapdragon 630 a bit younger than that, but these mobile phone SoCs may soon find renewed life on the upstream Linux kernel thanks to the work of community developers...
