The world's first modular phone has been around for a while, and this month it will finally get Android Marshmallow. On the other hand, the Fairphone team is also working on a new software update for the first Fairphone handset, although it will be based on the now outdated Android 4.4.4 KitKat and the company cannot give a launch date for it yet.

According to Fairphone, the new software promises to offer "better security, longer battery life, and improved functionality, to name just a few of the advantages." The highlights of this update include improved app permissions, increased battery life, improved multitasking, more flexible storage, a standard user interface that drops Fairphone-exclusive features like Privacy Impact and Edge Swipe Menu.

The launch day is not known yet, but Fairphone reveals that the update is scheduled to arrive "in the coming weeks," with the regular version being followed by the Open Source one "in the near future."

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
