PinePhone Keyboard update [April 24/04]

It certainly made me laugh though when I saw that the keyboard was thicker than the phone... it makes perfect sense though when you realise there's a battery as well as the keyboard there though. It's nice how the pinephone seems to snap in as if it were a replacement back panel.

How does this charge (as I notice there's no picture of the right side)? Does it have any priority in which battery charges first? (i.e charge the pinephone battery before the keyboard battery) Is there any room for future expansion... i.e. can the lora backplate be integrated into that as well? wireless charging?

So you charge it via the USB-C port on the keyboard. That will charge both the keyboard battery and the PinePhone itself. Not sure what the chagrining priority is (I'll ask), but I think that the charging goes: keyboard battery -> PinePhone battery.

It is my understanding that officially there isn't any room for expansion inside, same pins are used for Wireless charging, fingerprint scanner and keyboard - not sure if you could hack up something stackable. I guess we'll find out in the next few months Smile
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
