Ubuntu Touch Can Now Run on Raspberry Pi 3 with the Official 7″ Touch Screen LCD

While UBports is working hard to port Ubuntu Touch to more smartphones and tablets, the latest being PINE64’s PinePhone and Volla Phone smartphones, they’ve also been able to make Ubuntu Touch run on a Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computer (SBC) with the official Raspberry Pi 7″ touch screen LCD, which appears to be a true development platform for Ubuntu Touch. UBports also revealed the fact that upcoming Ubuntu Touch OTA updates will add better support for Bluetooth headsets, as wells the fact that Canonical’s Mir display server can now run on Wayland using the Wayland protocol, allowing the user session to be suspended, which saves battery and also improves the security and privacy of Ubuntu Phone devices.
