Project Anakin

The Project "Anakin" - Phase 1 of PINE64 Smartphone "PinePhone" Development Kit

Project Anakin is a marsh-up kit for the PINE64 Smartphone dubbed "PinePhone". It is used in the early stages of development as a starting point for affiliated projects.

PinePhone development has been broken down into three distinct phases:

  • First phase - Project Anakin

  • Second phase - purpose-built development kit code named "Don’t be evil". It will be introduced at FOSDEM 2019

  • Lastly, the third phase which is the PinePhone itself - scheduled to be released in Q3 2019 (pending on software development).

The Anakin kit consists of following components:

  • SoPine Module

  • SoPine Model A baseboard

  • Pine A64 Wifi/BT module

  • 16GB eMMC module

  • 5 Mega Piixel CMOS Camera Sensor

  • 7" Touch Screen LCD Panel

  • Playbox Enclosure

  • Lithium Ion Battery case (note: battery not included, can accommodate 1-3 pieces of 18650 size Lithium Ion batter. In general, one is good enough)

  • Quectel EC20 R2.1 LTE Module (note: The SIM tray design not distinguish polarity well and all reverse slot in)
