That is a very good question, I think that once privacy phones get traction, governments will be interested in an least finding way to infiltrate into them , god forbid if they have a million turned-on devices on their landscape that they can't ping apple or google and get whatever information they want about those devices and their owners.. but I do not think they will try to ban such devices, because governments never want you to actually know their real intentions - such an act will reveal the fact that they are anti-freedom of choice, and even if they are (and there are many hypocrite governments that act like that) they will not want you to know.
We will need to protect our right to own and operate such phones, including watching out for any funny looking application that is offered, or "custom kernels" that might appear, or "developers" that will try to make pull requests to certain code repos, all of those will be trojan horse attempts. I know it sounds like fiction, but it is not too far fetched IMHO.

Governments are already asking for the keys of chat apps.
They are pushing for new laws and the next could be asking for the keys to the hardware.

Not surprising, governments in the last few years are not even trying to be discreet about their overreaching, and making a "good" excuse for invading people's privacy even when they do not have any lawful reason to do so.

I guess that they really wants us to "own nothing" like they say, if they want to control even an ordinary piece of free software that is installed on a device that you own.

It is dangerous.
