I took a look and despite the advertised "QuecOpen"(under development) and the osmocom guys info, I  still think that it uses Android.
In the link you provided I read...
ADB
android debug bridge
the lsusb output: iManufacturer Android | iProduct Android
In the board flyer they say they uses linux kernel 3.18 that sounds like android.
And little kernel to boot.

And if it uses android kernel what there is left of linux ?

I couldnt find a firmware so I downloaded the firmware of the D-Link DWM-222 stick that uses the same qualcom modem, and I even more think that uses android...

I have asked Quectel and it is Linux Kernel. Lets stop the speculation and move on.

i don't think the d-link dwm-222 uses the same modem. this page has some info on that device. it states a Qualcomm MDM9225 is used, which is android [without adb, lol Sad ]  so, the dlink and pine device use entirely different modems. so, yeah, you seem mis-informed.
https://osmocom.org/projects/quectel-mod...2_stick/10


however, on the Quectel EC25 page linked the lsusb output shown has this,

lsusb output
Bus 001 Device 058: ID 2c7c:0125··
Device Descriptor:
bLength 18
bDescriptorType 1
bcdUSB 2.00
bDeviceClass 0 (Defined at Interface level)
bDeviceSubClass 0·
bDeviceProtocol 0·
bMaxPacketSize0 64
idVendor 0x2c7c·
idProduct 0x0125·
bcdDevice 3.18
iManufacturer 1 Android
iProduct 2 Android
iSerial 0·
,,,,

which is rather confusing. i honestly don't know either way. but the use adb as well as the lsusb output makes me wonder if parts are linux and parts are android. like an android interface [adb] to a linux kernel. this is pretty much the typical android methodology , it's all based on a linux kernel. would be interesting to get an official readout from the manufacturer but i also understand tllim point of view.

ok ok i dont wanna upset tllim. I'd like to seea firmware anyway...
Funny that I find nothing googling "Qualcomm MSM 9x70"... I know that qualcomm is a very closed company but...
Update:
it's "Qualcomm MDM 9x07"

I posted a story on my blog about the Pinebook Pro which was announced today.

https://baldnerd.com/pine64-pinebook-pro-rk3399-laptop/

There's also an interview there between @Luke and myself.

Hope you enjoy  Smile

Linked to your article. The Pine Pro looks very good, and as my work computer's screen is in the process of dying... the idea of putting manjaro on a Pinebook pro looks like a better option than hacking a chromebook or a small windows machine.

Will the PinePhone be modular similar to how the phone developer kit is? I.e., could the Sopine be upgraded with a future improved unit? Ditto on the screen, camera, eMMC, battery, etc...

Due to space constraints, the PinePhone will not use a SOPINE module like the dev kits do.  Instead, they will have the chipset soldered to a main board.  The modem and eMMC will also be soldered.  It's fortunate that Pine64 is able to fit the cost of the EG25-G modem into the budget, since less expensive versions of the EG25 have only regional LTE support, unlike the -G which covers most major bands worldwide.

Over on the UBPorts forum, we have a thread about the PinePhone where we've generally been keeping track of the hardware specs as they cohere.  The latest posts there from the Pine64 account indicate replacement screens will be available, but nothing has been posted there about potential future upgrades.

I made this thread with some requests about the phone.

This is just a point of my curiosity, but has there been any talking with the guys at pure.ism about a PureOS image for the phone and tab?

Pure OS guys seems pretty much greedy...

I'm looking forward to see the pinebook pro. Pre-production units have been send to developers right?

Looking at the images of the inside of the pinebook pro I see a lot of empty space (I guess it's also to accomodate an optional PCI extension card and a NVMe SSD). I think it would be great if you propose also a version with a larger battery filling the maximum of the chasis. Sure it will make it heavier but also last longer than other x86 usual laptop.
