|_. Feature |_. Chip |_. comments |_. TODO |
| System on a chip | Allwinner A64 Quad Core SOC[9] SOC[1] | * The bootloader should be fully free software[7] including ARM Trusted Firmware[8] software[7][8]
* The code should be upstream already[7] | TODO:
* Look at the code |
| GPU | Mali 400 MP2 GPU[1] | * A "pipe" driver is in Linux since 5.2
* Has (very early) support in Mesa | TODO:
* Regularly check kernel and MESA status |
| Modem |/2. Quectel EG-25G[1][2][4] with worldwide bands | * The EG-25G is an international version of the EC25
* It probably runs GNU/Linux too but we need to confirm that | TODO:
* How supported is the AT support?
* How supported is the QMI the protocol?
* What's the similarity with the EC-25? |
| GNSS: GPS, GPS-A, GLONASS[1][4] | |
| WiFi |/2. RTL8723CS[3] | * Requires a nonfree loadable firmware[3] | |
| Bluetooth: 4.0, A2DP[1] | * It uses a nonfree firmware[3].
TODO:
* Check if it really requires that firmware or if it has some rom code that could be used ? |
| USB – C (Power, Data and Video Out)[1] | |* | | TODO:
* Which
USB 2.0[9] version is used ?
* Serial console is only available in Does it also give access to the headphone connector (activated by the 6th contact on the dipswitch[10])| serial port |
| RAM | 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM
5.95″ LCD 1440×720, 18:9 aspect ratio (hardened glass) | | TODO:
* Check if it meets [[HardwareRequirements|Android 9 requirements]] |
| Main Camera | Single OV6540, 5MP, 1/4″, LED Flash[1] | * Mainline driver[5]
* No firmware required[5] | TODO:
* Check if it requires a loadable firmware |
| Selfie Camera | Single GC2035, 2MP, f/2.8, 1/5″[1] | | TODO:
* Check if it requires a loadable firmware |
| Bootable Micro SD[1]
16GB eMMC[1] | *Boot order:MicroSD->eMMC [6]| |
| Sensors accelerator, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, ambient light[1] | | | TODO:
* What chips are used |

fn3. From #replicant channel on Freenode: <pre>< MoeIcenowy> The Wi-Fi changed to RTL8723CS (this chip also does BT), which needs non-free firmware to be feed</pre>

fn4. From #replicant channel on Freenode: <pre>< MoeIcenowy> The GNSS should be also done by EG25-G</pre>

fn5. From #replicant channel on Freenode: <pre>< MoeIcenowy> The OV5640 camera doesn't need firmware and its driver is mainlined</pre>

fn6. From #replicant channel on Freenode: <pre>The boot order is strictly MicroSD->eMMC, which is set in the A64's boot ROM</pre>

fn7. From #replicant channel on Freenode: <pre>The bootloader (U-Boot SPL + ATF + U-Boot) is free software, all mainlined now (and the downstream dirty U-Boot cannot boot upstream Linux kernel)</pre>
