If you can find one with an I2C interface - all the ones I've seen use SPI which isn't accessible.

Also a small microcontroller in-between is able to do the conversion anyway. :-)

You can even make a microcontroller do updates to the screen while the phone is sleeping. Also if you make the microcontroller render the display then the bandwidth limitation of the i2c bus is less of an issue. Doing a straight up proxy between i2c and spi would be very slow.

thanks all for replays ,I think it would be good for me also as first display and not as secondary Tongue
yes I know it's strange, but now I use the pc only through e-ink displays (connected wireless with vnc) and my eyes thanks for that.

- 5G or +
- WiFi 6 or +
- Bt 5.1 or +
- NFC
- UFS 3 or +
- M2 connector inside to plug even NVme drives
- DDR upgrade options - in sockets or similar -
- SoC upgrade options - in socket or similar -
Options:
- Extra 2 batteries with an external battery charger for replacing batteries
- USB-C "extender" and or dock with HDMI, SD card reader, and USB2 and 3 ports. - there is one good and cheap enough that perhaps you can recommend or make a deal with -
- cheap enough USBc to USBc external laptop and hybrid.
(Adapt the actual PINEbook and PINEtab to be PINEphone peripherals and charging stations)

Perhaps not all for the actual PINEphone, but for the next PINEphone 2

Looks like asking for notebook upgrade :-)

I think really we need to be looking at a slightly larger emmc. I've exceeded 16gb on a couple of my sd installations already (pmos with phosh and Ubports) especially when using flatpaks. Obviously when they're installed to the emmc it will be possible to extend the app storage onto the sd card, but that will slow performance. 32 or 64Gb emmc would leave a lot more room for tinkerers who really like the 'pocket computer' element of the pinephone.
