Operating systems (OS) for the Fairphone 3


The Fairphone 3 ships with a Fairphone operating system (OS), based on Android 9 Pie, with a set of Google apps.
Our aim is to support Fairphone 3 with security and software upgrades for 5 years.

For Fairphone 2, we offered also Fairphone Open, an operating system (OS) that does not have Google services pre-installed. We are currently investigating the possibility of making Fairphone Open available on Fairphone 3.

It is possible to install alternative operating systems on your Fairphone 3 when they will be made available.

We are working towards making available:

Please be aware of the following:

  • We do not offer support for any different OS.
    For more information, instructions, and help, you might try asking on our community on the forum or on the forum of the operating system you wish to install.
