Javier Martinez Canillas of Red Hat has recently been working on the PinePhone Pro display support and getting it upstreamed. Testing of this display support has been done with Fedora Workstation running on this budget Linux smartphone.
PINE64, PinePhone Pro
Sent out today was the v4 patches for introducing the new Himax HX8394 panel controller driver for enabling the HSD060BHW4 720x1440 TFT LCD panel found with the PinePhone Pro. There are also the necessary DeviceTree additions for getting this PinePhone Pro display support in order. With the patches being quickly iterated on, it's possible this driver work could be buttoned up in time for the v6.3 kernel cycle in early 2023.
